Hello bifidobacterium! Here's an interesting scientific paper about using bifidobacteria for breadmaking. It sounds like good stuff!
The only thing is ------ get your pooper scooper ready!
I’m not ready to take the plunge :D
I’ve said in the past, “I’ll try anything once”. I now know I lied...
Very interesting, Lactobacillus sp. are also found in human stool of course.
Bifido is in those "probiotic" supplements, mostly included with Lactobacillus, but at least one product on amazon has a bifido strain by itself.
Though I doubt the supplements have the chicken variety that the article touts. ;-)
Dan, using probiotic supplements to create a starter sounds like an experiment you might have experience with. ;-)
Never used it in a starter, but did experiment with it in a sd bread. I was unimpressed.
The main bacteria in salt rising bread is clostridium perfringens. Explains why I haven't made it yet...
Hi Abe, welcome back - long time no hear from! Yes, gangrenous bread never sounded (or smelled) too good to me. It makes the pooper-scooper derivation of bifido bread bacteria sound positively pleasant!
long ago, every bread I made was poop bread. Now only a few turn out poopy. Does that count?
I often put a bit of milk kefir in my bread - it is sort of like a dash of buttermilk. It does act as a dough conditioner, and it does contain bifidobacteria.
is beginning to sound better than crap.
