Healthy baking, taste, flavours

Characteristics

I am making type of 'levain' which is not sour, my bread is proofed overnight in fridge and only bulk ferment for 4 hours, bench for another 2 hours, maintaining below 8 hours of above 20C fermenting to prevent sourness. Despite sourness is what make sourdough, but most 'Pain au Levain' is not sour from where I am
