Corn Starch?

Are we allowed to have cornstarch? I am trying to find some products that I can use to make bread, muffins, pancakes ect. I found an Atkins product but the muffin mix has enriched flour, and the pancake mix has cornstarch. Can anyone help me?

Hi Sparky!

I personally have a problem with the Atkins products because of the soy products used in them. Generally speaking, white flour and cornstarch were said to be No-No's by Dr. Atkins.

Here are some bake mixes that are being used. Hope this helps! Diznee girl posted this a few days ago on another thread. I always use the top one because it has no soy.

Soy-free bake mix

1 cup almond meal
1 cup vital wheat gluten
1 cup plain whey protein powder
4 packets Splenda
2 Tbsp. bakig powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt to balance flavors


BAKE MIX I (Atkins knock off)

1 C soy flour
2 C soy protein isolate
2 TBL baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 TBL granular Splenda

Mix well and then sift together. I store mine in the refrigerator and use in the same proportions as any recipe calling for low carb bake mix. I usually use the bake mix as a slight addition in other recipes

3 carbs per 1/2 C



1/4 C oat flour
3/4 C soy flour
1 1/2 C soy protein isolate
1/2 C vanilla whey protein powder
2 TBL baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 TBL granular Splenda


Low carb Bisquik version

9 cups wheat protein isolate
1/3 cup baking powder
1 tablespoon salt
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/4 cup Splenda ®
2 cups lard

Sift baking powder, salt, cream of tarter, and Splenda ® with wheat protein isolate 3 times. Cut in lard until mixture is the consistency of cornmeal. Store in covered containers in refrigerator or freezer.
