Is sourdough bread halal?

I pray that this finds you well, and in the best of health and spirits. May Allah grant you all good and success in this life and the next.

Yes, sourdough bread is halal, because the incidental presence of alcohol for non-intoxicating purposes does not render food haram–if it is in an amount that doesn’t intoxicate; isn’t there as an intoxicant; and isn’t consumed because of intoxication.

And Allah alone gives success.
