After 25 years in the restaurant business, Founder & Baker Tracy Gribbon understands the importance of clean healthy food. Inspired by her grandmother's cooking, and her sister's belief that food items should be safe to use and not stuffed with difficult to pronounce ingredients that include fillers, sugars, and stabilizers, Tracy started Georgia Sourdough. She developed healthy modern day snacks from ancient practices and organic ingredients and creating a sustainable ecosystem in our world where someday we can buy and choose food items with abandon- knowing that all is safe.
Her quest for creating that healthy snack began with a process as old as time itself, a starter. Georgia Sourdough Co. crackers are all made using the same starter that has been used from day one.
A much loved starter can live over 100 years and provides all the yeast a leavened product needs. These yeast are alive and prodigious and share their space with some good bacteria called lactobacilli. Together these cohorts create a teeny tiny ecosystem within the starter. When you make any recipe with the starter and give it time to rest, rise and ferment, you make magic happen. During this time your gluten is resting, but your cohorts are busy eating the sugars in the starch and tenderizing the tight gluten strands. The results are...
1. carbon dioxide that gives you rise,
2. a partially digested gluten product that your body can easily digest and assimilate nutrients from,
3. that delicious slightly sour sourdough flavor courtesy of lactic acid.
Tracy uses natural and organic ingredients made locally by family farmers. Every ingredient is carefully evaluated for quality and freshness with each batch. Using the same process as bakers have used for thousands of years, the ingredients are blended by hand, creating the unique dough that makes these crackers special.
The Georgia Sourdough Team combines these ingredients with a passion for healthy snacking to create exceptional sourdough crackers. Handmade from scratch, without the use of unnecessary stabilizers or preservatives the crackers are rolled, baked and sliced into crackers each shaped as unique as the next.
The Georgia Sourdough Co. crackers are a flavorful reminder that great taste and healthy eating can coexist. They are the perfect companion for cheese ranging from kid friendly cheddar to foodie favorites including Gorgonzola Dolce or Taleggio. Experience the unmistakably unique flavor and rustic texture of sourdough with each bite.
