Okay. So you can't replace regular flour in a bread and such? Cause if I am to make pastry and bread with yeast I need something to make it puff up.

The mix Kevin uses can be used to replace flour in regular cookie and cake recipes. The yeast aps are a little different.
The link below has MANY of the recipes in which the mix was used.

There is a separate thread in there that goes into the yeast thing.
Simple White Bread He uses the mix, not just CQ or carbalose flour.

Is this what you are asking? I assumed you were talking about the "mix" in this thread and not just these two ingredients.

I was really wondering if using carbquik will make fluffy pastry and buns? Like regular flour. Thanks though! I bet there are many recipes with carbquik and such and kevin has some great ones!

how did you get $64 for just carbquic and carbalose? From Netrition those two only come to a bit over $21 before shipping? or do you mean $64 worth of bake mix ingredients in general, like WPI 5000, 7000, polydextrose, etc.

I'd like to know about pastries and drop biscuits as well, but no one has tried making croissants yet. But it seems like it's an investment and even if I can't make the fluffy style stuff, I think I can at least make the many things people are posting about here. I think the key, and Kevin has proved this, is to never give up experimenting.

I've heard both wonderful stories and also things like "I tried it , it didn't work, I threw it out" Well. I personally know that if I invest in such expensive ingredients, I'm gonna keep trying to get the taste and texture I like until I use it up. I've got a tonne of ingredients in my Netrition shopping cart waiting till I'm at a phase when I can use them.

If any one does have success with a fluffy pastry biscuit type recipe, I'll be right there subscribing! and I'm sorry but almond flour and egg white does NOT a fluffy biscuit make!

I think Carbquik will only make biscuits as fluffy as you'd expect Bisquik to make. I've read people's comments on how "it tastes like it was made with biscquik" and to my knowledge that was the point of Carbquik, to be like Biscquik. So if you know how to do it with the one, it should work with the other. I never used Biscuik so I wonder how fluffy it turns out. I don't trust pictures on boxes, they never show the food result with the actual product used.

Well, to ship it to Norway it was 43 dollars, so that's why I am so sad about it.

Aw Man!!! I wonder, if it would be less to ship it personally as opposed to by business. Hmm.


Oh wow, I just checked USPS Site and Priority Mail International is $45 for 6lb, and the Flat Rate box maxes out at 4lb. and the next size up(med) is $45 also. What Stink!

The only lower price would be Air Mail Sack Single Address and that's $38 for up to 11lb. ( I've never seen air mail delivery , is that Par Avion?)

Well, darn, I was hoping there was some way around the shipping fees.

Yeah it sucks Looks like there's no way around it, because they are such heavy items. How about sending them individually? It's 3 lbs per pack, right? How much is a flat rate box?

unfortunately I checked all the options flat rate, international air mail, ... it would cost more to send two 3lb packs than to send the whole 6lb. like $38 up to 4lb and $45 up to 9 lb.

Y'know if I could have found a cheaper rate, I'd have sent it to you myself! We have something called parcel post, which is the slowest cheapest takes forever to get your stuff rate, but It's only US locations.

I wonder if it would be cheaper for a business to buy an whole order of it and then split the shipping cost across the value of the product? Maybe you could find a store who'd be willing to buy some to sell. Then you could buy some locally and others could buy it too. you'd be the town hero!

I thought Netrition had a flat rate for shipping in the lower 48 for only $4.95 per order. Isn't that what their site says?

1 tsp not/Sugar

I actually multiplied this by 8 to yeild me just slightly over 8 cups.

Will this work as bread flour to make plain bread in my bread machine?

It is important that if you completely mix all the flours well in the 8 cup recipe so you get a complete mix when using.

Hello Alonewithyou,

i have the same issue you face with shipping as i live in australia, and for 3-5kg the shipping usually hits the $99 - $120 mark i think netrition offer the cheapest shipping available to them BUT i do have a suggestion to offer you, and thats a mail forwarding centre.

I have a virtual US mailbox and i place an order with netrition twice-three times per month - and at the mailing centre i have 90 days storage time, so when i have the shipping funds, i have those 2-3 netrition orders consolidated into one parcel which usually weighs a heavy 60lb - 79lbs BUT with this option, i am then able to select my own shipping method - which they offer TNT economy (4-6 business days) TNT Express (2-3 business days), Fedex Economy, Fedex Express, UPS, Royal airmail, DHL etc and for example - the cost was $210 for 50lbs (22.3kg)

needless to say, with this option i do some shopping from other US stores including walmart for cheap clothing etc, or the other items not found on netrition (for example i was after apple flavoured drink mix, and after checking out netrition they did not have this kool aid flavour so i purchased through another store) so now i can make the mock apple pies etc. Its unfortunate their isnts a netrition in all countries, but if found this option of mail forwarding to be an affordable way to purchase bulk from netrition.

Blondy you can also use apple blossom, apple flavored teas work really well for apple flavoring.

Apple Blossom sounds Yummy just in the name itself lol... unfortunately its another product i would have to purchase in the USA, as we dont have it here... sometimes i feel the countries outside the USA miss out on so much of the good stuff

WOE: Just Plain old Low Carb Approx 20-30 per meal
Has anyone tried this mix now that the WPI 5000 formula has changed and the weight is different? I am unsure of how to make the mix now as the weight is off.

Kevin mentioned that the WPI 5000 for 1/4 c was 13g.
When I weigh the WPI 5000 for 1/4c. I get 50g.

So it wouldn't make the full Cup of the mix.



Any help/direction is appreciated.
