Decades-old mother doughs.
At ACE®, we have a variety of starter doughs (or 'Mothers'). Mother doughs are living bacteria, which are left to rest at specific temperatures for specific lengths of time. By adding starters to a fresh dough yields a distinct flavor and texture. Our hard-working bakers work continuously to keep our starters alive. This means feeding the Mothers on weekends, holidays, even in blackout periods! But it's well worth it. Some of our starters are derived from Europe and are over 70 years old!
