Where is the Course Taught from?
Why is bread integral to health and wellbeing?
This course is about understanding the impact of the bread we eat every day on our physical and mental health. We focus on the impact of bread on health, and in particular on the gut microbiome and understanding how the mechanisms of sourdough positively transform bread.
Bread can harm or heal. Bread and baked goods make up the top three out of four of the largest proportion of our daily calorie consumption. It is impossible to ignore the impact of bread and baked goods on our health and wellness, and yet bread is possibly the most misunderstood food of our most basic of foods. It can be simultaneously both the best of foods and yet the worst of foods.
Who does this course appeal to?
This years students include a wide range of people, from GP’s to bakers and Healthcare professionals, a farmer and Nutritionalists, indeed pretty much anyone who is interested in understanding why and how their bread can be healthier.
It particularly appears to healthcare professionals as they are able to prescribe our baking lifestyle course based our bread making protocol to their patients. There are scholarships and bursaries available.
