LIVENDO®

LIVENDO®, LESAFFRE’S NEW SOURDOUGH SIGNATURE

A brand fired by passion to stimulate the imagination
of innovative bakers and to meet consumers’ expectations.

LIVENDO®, our brand of Sourdough solutions.

 

Sourdough is a natural fermenting agent that actively contributes to bread’s sensory profile by producing its distinct flavors and textures.

However, aside from the aromatic aspect, it also delivers plenty of benefits.

The crumb is more elastic, more open; water retention is improved, thus delaying the staling process.

DISCOVER THE RANGE

LIVENDO® range offers a wide range of sourdough product references, structured around four product families: Starters, Devitalised sourdoughs, Live sourdoughs and Sourdough-based applications.

STARTERS

Starters are formed from a combination of pure and carefully selected strains of lactic acid bacteria and yeast.
They are used to produce highly developed acids and aromas in dough.
Starter use saves from having to refresh a spontaneous sourdough developed using traditional methods.

LIVE SOURDOUGH

Live sourdough is produced from the natural fermentation of cereal flour obtained from organic farming.
Ready-to-use in liquid form, live sourdough enables bakers to avoid the sourdough preparation phase and save time to bakers.
It allows dough to rise and gives the finished product a distinct aromatic typicity special to sourdough-based bakery goods.

DEVITALIZED SOURDOUGH

DEVITALIZED SOURDOUGH

Devitalized sourdough, produced from fermented flour (wheat, rye, spelt, etc.), requires no preparation and can be incorporated directly into the mixer.
It gives the finished product a distinct aromatic typicity special to fermented cereal. It is used in all kinds of bread-making processes.
Through their shelf life of 12 to 18 months, deactivated sourdough retains all of their aroma, acidity, and color attributes.

SOURDOUGH-BASED PREPARATIONS

Thanks to its expertise in sensory analysis, Lesaffre has developed sourdough-based formulations with malt, organic acids, spices, etc.
These preparations are used to extend and vary the range of aromatic profiles in bakery goods.
They are directly incorporated into the mixer to give the finished product a unique flavour and colour.
