Low Carb Bread

I would love to know what low carb breads you have tried, which you liked and where you get them from.

I haven't found any in my local stores and am thinking about ordering some - but whew are they expensive - and I don't want to make a costly mistake.

Thanks!

I never found a true low carb bread but what has worked for me is Joeseph's low carb pitas($2.08 for 6 at walmart), use them for sandwichs, hotdogs and now we form the meat for burgers to conform to the pita!

I have been trying to make bread in my breadmaker with Carbquik. It smells good when it's baking, and is absolutely delicious, and about 2 inches tall.

I haven't been able to find this for several weeks now, and when I asked the store manager at our local Publix she checked and was told it was just recently discontinued.

I did find a fairly acceptable substitute from Pepperidge Farm, though. It's called "Light Style" and the Soft Wheat has 8 grams of carbs per slice with (unfortunately) only 1 gram of dietary fiber. The slices are very thin, too.

I like Arnold's Light bread (not sure of the exact name). It's 40 calories a slice, 13 carbs for two slices. It's pretty good, and can easily be found in a supermarket. I eat it maybe once a week for lunch.

WOE: Lowish carb (formerly on Protein Power)
I've switched to Sara Lee Delightful whole grain -- 9 carbs 2 fiber per full sized slice. That's the lowest I can find in the regular grocery store, and I am not going to pay $5.00+ shipping for a loaf of bread.

I also really like Joseph's flat lavish bread. It makes wonderful crackers as well as wraps.

I like 1 Carb Bread from Julian Bakery. You can get it by mail order. 13 carbs, 12 grams fiber, 109 calories a slice but is best toasted as it is a bit firm. Pricey but great toast.

BUMMER!!!! I eat bread so sparingly that I have had a loaf of this bread in my freezer forever...guess I should savor the few slices I have left.

I also use the low carb bread from Julian's Bakery. I ordered it online. They also have cinammon raisin for 2 net carbs a slice. It's very nice toasted with some butter. I use any bread sparingly, but this is a hit for me when I want bread!

My only issue with it is I tend to overeat it!

You know, I've seen that on the board but to my knowledge, no one has actually spent the money and had it analyzed. I thought about it. It's $120 I think. More important to me is the calorie count but I would love to know the correct ratios......if they are incorrect. I will follow your link.

OK, I read it. It seems to say that Netrition has read the label and something doesn't jive. OK, I get that but I would really like to see an actual analysis by a company. I may look into that. Now I'm really curious!

There's a similar argument I saw recently on 'Healthwise' low carb/zero carb bread. Seems low carb bread really is an oxymoron (I'm not sure if I'm kidding or not!!).

I don't see any low carb bread in the stores around here. I was thinking about making some of my own. In my atkins book there is a recipe for basic protein bread. It calls for soy powder, which I despise! I am wondering if it might work with almond flour instead.

I haven't bought any since I started this WOE - but I ate them because of the calorie count when I did low fat. Healthy Life Low Carb Bread- 5 net grams per 2 slices. Got it from Kroger.

Here is something from someone's blog who is diabetic concerning the 1 Carb Bread, for what it's worth: Julian Bakery Smart Carb Bread #1 | HoldTheToast! by Dana Carpender

WOE: Healthy Low Carb
I have a package of Flat Out Wraps for those once in a great while cravings...I think they have 5 net carbs for a fairly large wrap. They taste like gyro type bread and are awesome!

I got them at Walmart by the deli area....really good stuff!

I found some recipes here and there and make my own most of the time, if not I order mine from Sami's Bakery. Wonderful, low carb breads, rolls brownies and cheesecake.

I make mine most of the time, too. In fact, I only keep low-carb "store-boughten" breads for my husband, who likes a sandwich for a snack at night. I hardly ever eat any bread myself except for Laura Dolson's Low-Carb Focaccia-Style Flax Bread -- It's very easy and quick to make, has less than one gram of carbs per slice, and I think it tastes as good as any other bread I've ever had. It also keeps very very well in the fridge. I bake it about once every week or ten days and it stays nice and fresh sealed in a plastic bag until I finish it.
