A SOUR DEAL
It’s just not brunch unless you’re dipping toasted “gut-healthy” sourdough into a gooey egg yolk – but that’s not to say it’s making a crumb of difference to your digestive health. Given its fermented credentials, sourdough is said to boost healthy microbes in the gut and reduce blood-sugar spikes. The catch? Researchers at Israel’s Weizmann Institute of Science discovered those perks only ring true for a lucky few. It’s hard to know if that’s you, so listen to your body. If sourdough makes your stomach happy, slice it; if not, don’t. Simple.
