Carbalose flour and Kevin in PA's recipes

I have come across several old threads in regard to bread baking with Carbalose flour by Kevin in PA and some remarks by Jennifer Eloff to improve flavor of Carbalose flour here. Has this flour been reformulated to improve taste since Kevin posted these recipes? I see lots of comments about unfavorable taste. Also with mixing half with Jenniffer's mix can it be used for bread baking? Do Kevin's recipes result in a more satisfactory bread than so many of the egg based recipes I see posted?

I started baking LC bread around the end of 2012 and have tried recipes by Jennifer Eloff as well as Kevinpa. I have never detected any off taste using Carbalose, but I have never used just Carbalose either-- every recipe is a mix of flours. Right now I bake a whole grain bread that is based on Jennifer's recipe, but tweaked a bit with some of the ingredients Kevin was known to use. Still not perfected yet but getting there. I use Kevin's pita bread recipe to make hamburger and hotdog buns. We take them with us to ball games and other events and swap the high carb buns with my buns. They work out so well one time I got worried that I was eating the wrong bun! I do think the WPI can add a little twangy taste but not the Carbalose. I've also made a coffee cake using one of Jennifer's mixes with Carbalose and it worked out great.

I have bought both Carbquik and Carbalose within the past 2 years and I find that they both taste much better than they did when they first came on the market. I don't know what they changed, but I don't detect the "twang" that they used to have.

Carbalose and Carbquick

I agree with Judy. These products are very much improved.
No odd taste now.

I think somebody put up here that they have changed the formula. Maybe it was CarolynF.

I thought I had heard the word "improved" relating to carbalose flour some time back but have never tried it. Will have to include it in my next order and give some of these recipes a try. The last bread that I tried was Buttoni's Einkorn loaf bread which is the best so far. May be doing low carb but still enjoy baking bread. Probably what got me in trouble in the first place.
