Sourdough Jacks at Jack in the Box
The Sourdough Jack sandwich from fast-food chain McDonald’s stands out among their menu as an iconic dish, featuring a beef patty, melted cheese and bacon between two slices of sourdough bread.
Sourdough bread is made using a sourdough starter that gives it its unique tangy taste and texture, as well as being known for its crunchy exterior and fluffy interior.
Early Life and Education
Sourdough jacks are a delicious, quick, and simple bread-and-meat sandwich, similar to the classic hamburger without its bun. Instead, four slices of sourdough bread cut into rounds are used as the foundation and then topped with tomatoes, cheese jacks and mayo for an irresistibly delicious snack that’s ideal for enjoying with ketchup as an afterschool meal at home.
Starter cultures for sourdough are composed of Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast, used in baking for millennia, and Lactobacillus probiotic bacteria commonly found in yogurt, pickles, and other fermented foods – giving sourdough its signature tang.
McKenney’s team found that the microbial ecology of a sourdough starter depends on factors like flour used, how often it’s fed and its environment; different grains produce slightly different microbial communities with distinct metabolic byproducts.
