Making Sourdough Bread

Instead of using packaged yeast or starter cultures to leaven bread, has anyone tried just throwing in a capsule of probiotic supplements? They are after all, filled with healthy bacteria found in yogurt and soured bread, except with a more diverse number of strains. If anyone has tried this or has any theory on this, how did it turn out?

  1. Wow, you think too much.....ha.

    Excellent question...now I'm curious.

    Anyone?

    1. Isn't the point of using yeast/starter to have only those bacteria which will leaven and flavour your bread?

      1. Are you familiar with this site?

        I searched for probiotic and came up with a few hits which you will find below.
