Yep, you obviously got the bread we are talking about...I think they may have a different version but a lot of places aren't carrying it anymore due to nutrition label not being correct.

The one I tried and am thinking about is the smart carb #1 bread that has 3 grams per slice. That one was good to me. My mom bought the zero carb one, the coconut one and the almond one. I am scared to try them now.

I agree, I always toasted their bread.
I actually went in with realistic expectations and I always toasted the bread otherwise it wasn't edible IMO.

The only times the Julian zero carb bread was decent to me was when I toasted it first, topped it with pizza sauce, mozz cheese and pepperoni and then toasted again.

Otherwise....i disliked it immensely.

But to each his own.

I think that's the original one I bought too. I actually craved that bread. LOL I would have eaten it whether I was doing low carb or not.

I never tried the Smart Carb, but just opened the Paleo coconut loaf. I like it! I miss being able to just have a sandwich so I don't have to cook something, so this fits the bill. No it doesn't taste like high carb bread, but I wasn't expecting it to.

I can't WAIT to have a BLT with fresh tomatoes!!! But until that time, I'll enjoy an organic turkey, provo sammich! Yum!

I have to admit, even knowing that their information might not be accurate - I bought the coconut and love it (it does smell a bit awkward). I do limit my consumption, though (for trust and for price!!).

I have been keepin smart carb #1 and #2 around as a staple for a while. They are dense and drier than normal breads, but for the carbs (supposed) I haven't found anything better out there...

The only other bread comparable is Weight Watchers which make a loaf that has either 10 or 12 net carbs for 2 slices, it tastes good BUT its loaded with chemicals and ingredients.

Unfortunately, it seems they have changed their formula for smart carb #1, and it now seems really rubbery and fennelly in taste the older recipe was better. I haven't tried the "new" smartcarb #2 yet. On the bright side, it seems they have a lot of new flavors which I will try...

Of course for sandwhiches and pizzas you can always use josephs low carb pitas and Lavash Bread for only 4 net carbs per decent serving size! It is also cheaper than Julians breads.

Well, this is what they're claiming (on the Paleo Coconut):
Ingredients: Purified Water, Organic Coconut Flour, Egg Whites, Psyllium, Organic Apple Cider Vinegar, Baking Soda

But that thread was back in 2010, that would not be correct for the Paleo breads which are new aren't they?

I just looked on the Julian Bakery website and its says they have reformulated their Smart Carb #1 and Smart Carb #2 (cinnamon raisin) breads. It says they have only 4-5 g total carbs/slice (3-4 g net carbs). Big splashy picture saying you can stay in ketosis with this bread. Personally I avoid all grains but I have tried their coconut flour Paelo bread. None of the ingredients in it are objectionable to me, so one slice every week or two works for me. I don't crave it, but it is nice to have with butter and Walden Farms jam sometimes.

OK, this thread has made me want to try their coconut bread! I hadn't been to their site in a year or so and I didn't realize they had this. I really like their 12 grain. It is dark and molasses-y!

Well...I loved it! I took about a half a loaf of the Paleo almond, and cubed it up. I put the cubes in a gallon baggie with EVOO, salt, pepper, and sage. Layed them all out on a cookie sheet and toasted them for about 1/2 to 3/4 an hour. Then I made the stuffing like I usually would . Onion, celery, sage, baby bella mushrooms, giblets, butter, salt, and pepper. I baked it with the lid on because it didn't break up like regular bread cubes.

It was tasty!!! It was a bit different as you can imagine, but still better than no stuffing at all which I missed on holiday meals. I roasted a turkey today. So I'll be doing this again. I may run the cubes thru a food processor next time to get more smaller pieces since it doesn't fall apart.

Yum!!!

So glad it turned out! I am ordering their coconut bread ,12-grain and sourdough. I have not had the coconut bread before but worth a try. Their sourdough is relatively LC but the 12 grain is not but is fabulous toasted!!

Great idea, glad it turned out! DS (age 10) loves stuffing and I really need to work on getting him to eat lower carb as well. Might be a good side dish for me to try with him.

I was so excited when I heard about Julian Bakery! I ordered 4 different loaves from them, the only one we tried is the cinnamon raisin. OMG, it was horrible! It was like eating toasted foam rubber. Ended up going out to the birds and I'm not srue they like it! I know that Diane Kress warns against using any other than the Paleo coconut & almond, that the ingredients do not add up to the claims being made with the carb count, so the rest of them are going to the birds as well.

Funny, I bought a loaf yesterday of the Carb Smart.. 4 grams per slice.
I am pregnant and have gestational diabetes, I have to check my blood sugar after each meal.
All my numbers yesterday were around 115-120, for breakfast and lunch which were totally 100% low carb. For dinner I used 1 slice of this bread, topped with mozz and bacon. An hour later my blood sugar was 104! The best it's been all day! It did no negatively effect my blood sugar at all.
The bread was dense, but grilled up with with cheese and sauce it was doable.

That's good news, it sounds like their new label is likely accurate. I looked at the store for more coconut paleo bread the other day and they didn't have it, only the almond paleo and carb smart #1 and #2. Might have to try one of the others given your results.

MUCH better and MUCH cheaper than Julian!

I've posted this info a few times. I tried Julian Bakery .. meh. I discovered Sami's Bakery in Tampa, Florida a couple of years ago. They sell several low carb products.

It is TONS better tasting and MUCH cheaper than Julian. Their 7 grain bread has 2 net carbs, cinnamon raisin is 3 net carbs ($4.50 each). They also sell good bagels and dinner rolls. I don't recommend their pizza shell. And, I haven't tried other products. I order this bread about once a month. It ships and delivers in two days for around $14.00.

You can order online or by phone, but I had a shipping problem once several months ago so now I always order by phone.

Every once in a while I get it in my head that I can handle Julian Bakery bread and every single time it send me into an awful binge. That stuff sets of craving in me way worse than regular old white bread. I have finally sworn it off forever.

I looked at the sami's site and I'm not convinced it's any better than julian on the correctness of the carb counts.
Looking at their low-carb lavash shows 11g carbs, 10g fiber for 1/2 a lavash but they list whole wheat flour as the first ingredient and include rolled oats. Unless they're using less than 1/2tsp of each, that net count can't be 1g carbs. (sorry, skeptic that I am, it looks like the same funny math on labels that JB was doing, IMO).

Just had to share, I went to Whole Foods today and found their Paleo Almond Bread and the Carb Zero ($10.99 a loaf, yeesh!). Bagged everything up in ziplocks, two slices in each bag. I just tried the Paleo Bread, and I was decent. Very dense, for sure, and it wierdly didn't want to accept the butter I slathered on, but like I said, decent. It's no Wonder Bread, but I think it will be ok for a sandwich maybe once a week. I'll try the Carb Zero soon. If I decide to buy again, I'll order online ($7.99 a loaf, i believe) and go for the 6 loaf deal and split with my gluten-free friend. I hope to try the coconut paleo bread soon.
