What is a gluten-free sourdough starter?

Gluten-free sourdough starter is a combination of gluten-free flour, water, and a friendly bacteria known as a “starter culture” that helps to create a leavening agent. It is used to make gluten-free sourdough bread and other baked goods. The starter culture helps to break down the starches in the flour, creating a dough that is easier to digest and more flavorful than just using gluten-free flour alone. It also provides a unique flavor and texture to the finished product.

How do I make GF sourdough bread?

Gluten-free sourdough bread is made with a combination of gluten-free flours, such as brown rice, sorghum, millet, buckwheat, potato starch etc, and a sourdough starter. The starter is a combination of activated yeast and bacteria that help to leaven the bread and give it that signature sour flavor.

Symbiota's gluten-free starter is several years old and continuously nurtured for the best GF sourdough bread outcome. This means it is diverse in probiotic bacteria and resilient. When receiving your live sourdough starter, you will need to feed it and it will be ready to bake with within 1-3 days. We also offer a dried starter for those who would like to purchase this starter but not bake with it soon after receiving it. 

We feed our GF sourdough starter a combination of brown rice flour, buckwheat, and potato starch so it is already used to a variety of GF flours; making it quick to adapt to its new environment in your house. 

What do I receive in my purchase?

  • 3-6 tablespoons of GF sourdough starter (or the equivalent in dried format)

It died so not happy with the purchase

Lee Richmond
Great starter

Just baked my forst loaf from the dried starter and it was great.


I've made 5 loaves with this starter and they keep getting progressively better. I love this starter.

Make sure you get a dutch/french oven, it really does make a superior loaf which is soft and bubbly.

I get my specialty flours from the local Indian supermarket for a fraction of the cost of other stores.

Active little starter

Loving the bread we’re making with this starter. The starter is getting stronger and more active by the day. We’re really happy to have found Symbiota’s GF starter - it has changed things for the better for our family. We can now enjoy delicious GF sourdough bread, without paying $8+ per loaf at the supermarket. Thank you Symbiota.
