Bakeries in Singapore — 9 Places For Sourdough Bread And More

bakeries in singapore for sourdough

Not all breads are equal. And this is keenly felt not too long ago when sourdough began trending on social media during the circuit breaker period. The wave of interest in baking sourdough hit (ahem) fever pitch, because it’s a time-consuming process that can only be done indoors. But have you met your match in actor Jake Gyllenhaal? The dude professed his love for sourdough on a talk show! 

The hype about sourdough 

It’s a big deal if you love your bread but want it to have better health and nutritional benefits than commercial yeast bread. 

Making sourdough bread requires a long rising process, as bacteria present in the starter would feed on carbohydrates in the dough, leading to a production of acetic and lactic acids to build up the aroma and texture. The sourdough has a longer shelf life too. 

You’ll also feel full for a longer period as it takes longer to digest. So folks suffering from diabetes or other health problems might prefer sourdough bread because they’ll have a slower and reduced rise in blood sugar levels after eating it. 

Besides the super popular bakeries like Tiong Bahru Bakery and Baker and Cook, we’ve put together a list of other bakeries where you can get your sourdough loaves from. Here are our picks of the best bakeries in Singapore for sourdough and other types of bread. Are you hungry yet?
