Hello there! I'm having a run-in at the moment with supermarket giant Morrisons and the local Trading Standards and need some support. I noticed a few months ago that Morrisons had these fantastic looking "Sourdough Boules" on display for £1 (yes, just a one pound coin!). I asked for the ingredients of the sourdough dough and was given them and, as suspected, they included commercial yeast and in this instance citric acid which they said was to simulate the sour aroma related to sourdough. I have protested to Trading Standards saying that we specialists sweat and strain to achieve a perfect sourdough loaf over something like 15-24 hours work and patience only to see a cheating lot of mechanised non-bakers claiming to produce the real thing for £1. We need to highlight this and make a stand. \i am sure that Morrisons are not the only ones cheating the profession so please send your experiences and thoughts on the matter.
