Florapan® Starter Cultures

Your own signature sourdough bread with Florapan® Starter Cultures

Florapan® Starter cultures are developed to help bakers secure stable sourdough production. This allows bakers to avoid the complex back-slopping process and go directly to the final sourdough.

Florapan® Starter cultures are based on single cultivated microorganism strains which have been produced under a controlled fermentation process. This pure strain culture approach, composed of lactic acid bacteria, eliminates mutation risks and variations. It ensures consistent and stable fermentation quality repeatedly.

Using Florapan® Starter cultures in a single fermentation step ensures more predictable fermentation flavor and timing, delivering successful results in successive production-runs.

Florapan® Starter cultures and Florapan® Aromatic Yeasts can be combined in sourdough applications.
