"Alaska Jack's" sourdough starter a hybrid or the real thing?
I just received a packet of the "Alaska Jack's Sourdough Starter" off of ebay and am concerned that it is not truly Alaskan Sourdough. To me it seems like some kind of gimmicky/touristy hybrid.
The ingredients for one thing: bleached enriched flour, salt, fumeric acid, acetic acid, datem, soybean oil, lactic acid, ascorbic acid, 1 -cysteine, azodicabronamide, fungal enzymes.
This tells me its some kind of generic packet that does produce a starter - it has instructions on feeding it and keeping it alive - but this can't be a true hand-me-down alaskan starter can it? Thanks for any thoughts.
