Halacha - Chametz vs. Seor
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer:

Chometz is any product containing fermented grain from the 5 species (wheat, oat, barley, rye, spelt).

Seor is not prevalent today, but is often translated as sourdough. Before the days of commercial, packaged yeast people would leave a quantity of dough to super-ferment and use a small piece of this dough as the starter culture for each new batch of baked goods. This barely edible medium for the yeast is called seor.
