I'm realistic that I'm not going to find an excellent recipe for low carb bread, but something lighter would be nice.
I have found one brand of low carb breads that our Safeway store now carries and it's their own product. They make hamburger buns, etc. They are 9 grams each though, so I have to use sparingly. I'm also a bit cautious that they might not be that low in carbs yet because they do taste very much like regular bread.
I will have see what the scale tells me next weekend to get a better idea if they are ok to eat or not!!
Thanks for the welcome!!

Mary

welcome to the boards! just a word of warning though, mission brands aren't too good for you healthwise!

WOW

I can not believe how long this thread is. I just finish reading all 43pages and it took me about 3-4 days.

I want to thank all that have contributed. There is so much knowledge and expertise included in this thread I felt like I was in class. I even got me tablet out and took notes

I'm looking forward to putting all these to the test.

Philly!

I do substitute 1 cup of walnut or almond flour for one cup of carbquik, and i add at least a cup of walnuts.

I have seen "2 net carbs" per cookie posted in several places, but when I calculate I am coming closer to 13 total, 7 net.

Help!! Thank you.
Carbquik Carb counts

amount /grams/ ounces/ net carbs

1 tsp/ 2/ 0.07/ 0.1

1 TBS/ 6 /0.21 /0.3

1/4 cup/ 27.5 /0.97/ 1.5

1/3 cup /36/ 1.27 /2

1/2 cup /56 /1.98 /3

2/3 cup /71.5/ 2.52 /4

3/4 cup /82.5/ 2.91/ 4.5

1 cup /110/ 3.88 /6.1


I know it's a little hard to read... but use these counts when calculating carbs for the 3 lb box.

Hi folks, does anyone know if the net carb count in CarbQuick question got resolved? I know my large box says about 6 per cup, but then I saw some threads that said Tova says 13 per cup. Is that an older/smaller version, or the same one. I understand how they round, but I dont see how they can get away with putting 6 on the box if it's really 13. Makes a big difference when you are trying to keep your carbs around 20 per day.
Anyone anyone????

thanks!!!!!!!!!!

The current count is 12.7g NET per Cup (110g total weight); the old boxes are still out there on shelves. Presumably new boxes/labels are forthcoming but haven't made it to the shelves yet. It would be nice if the website was properly updated.... :blush:

That stinks. I dont get how they can do that. I've been using the product as if it were only 6 per cup. That really limits what I can do with it now.

If you've been using Carbquik and losing ok, I don't see any reason why you would have to stop. I'm not going to.

It isn't the point really of whether I'm losing or not. They are deceiving people when the net carbs are double what the box says. If you are counting carbs pretty strictly as I am, then it makes a big difference. I'm also losing very slowly so anything that makes it harder is not good.

I made the garlic cheddar biscuit with Carbquik tonight and I was very disappointed. I could not even taste the cheddar or the garlic. It was just like a regular biscuit to me and too much "Carbquik" taste for me. I ended up throwing all but the four we ate in the trash. Everyone seems to rave about these things. What did I did wrong. The texture of them was okay. Is there some way to disquise so much Carbquik taste?

When I made them I doubled the garlic and added a pinch of onion powder. Then I brushed warm garlic butter over the top. And the last 3 minutes of cooking, I sprinkled a little extra cheddar over the tops. It helped to disquise the CQ "taste"

Thanks, I'll try that next time. I did add more garlic powder than they called for but evidently it wasn't enough. They were edible but not what I expected because everyone was saying how much they loved them.

Hello Char,

You used poly-dextrose, was it instead of the splenda?

You used corn bran, was it instead of the corn meal?

Did you forget the jalapenos?

CarbQuik Carb Count

Go to post #1261 above. Those are the same as the counts given to us months ago by the Tova rep. If you look at the newer boxes, the rounding causes it to look like it's closer to 12, and the Tova rep confirmed that that's because I they had to round the fiber down and the carbs up for a very small serving size. However, they have confirmed to us more than once that the net carb count IS TRULY 6.1 per cup. I have been using this flour for almost a year and have never had any stalls or gains while using it. Enjoy~

Has anyone heard from Chef Greg lately? I'm trying to find out when the carbquik cookbooks he was writing will be available for purchase. How about TovaRep? Do you know when they will be for sale?

I was wondering the same thing. When I first joined this forum several months ago, I really enjoyed reading all his threads about recipe ideas and CQ. It's like he has fallen off the planet or something. Just odd that we never heard further about this book that was suppose to happen.

Chef Greg has been busy with other projects and his Carbquik cookbook is currently on hold. We'll let you know when there are more details.

Probably been asked already....but

check there. There is a whole debate about the carb counts. The Tova people at the actual company say it's 12 per cup. Then others say 6 per cup. No one has proved anything yet.

Somewhere in the Netrition Forum we had that debate under the CarbQuik bulletin board. Tova Rep came back with the exact counts, and explained that due to rounding when you look at the label with the smaller serving size the rounding up would make it come out to 12 carbs per cup. Then she went to show what each of the actual counts was, how carbs got rounded up because it was over .5, and fiber got rounded down since it was just under .5, and the difference was enough to make it go from 6.1 to 12 per cup. She ASSURED me that the nutritional lab sample numbers were the ones that she posted, which netted out to an actual 6.1. After that discussion I started using the 6.1 because I felt comfortable with the source. If a person working there less scientifically inclined were to read the label, it would look like 12, and that's probably what you're getting if you just call the place.

WOE: Atkins/moderate carbs.
Start Date: Re-inducted mid September 2004.
A tasty muffin recipe:

Almond Poppy Seed Mini Muffins

1 egg
1 cup Carbquick
2 Tablespoons granular Splenda
1 - 2 teaspoons of almond extract or more to taste PLUS enough water to equal 1/4 cup
1 Tablespoon of poppy seeds
Dash of salt
1/8 cup water
1 Tablespoon oil
1 teaspoon baking powder

Preheat oven to 400. Beat the egg in a medium bowl and then mix in the remaining ingredients. Spray a mini muffin pan with Pam and fill each space in the pan equally. Bake until a tooth pick comes out clean when inserted in a muffin. This recipe makes 12 large mini muffins. Less than 2 net carbs per muffin.

God bless.

Sounds good/ I have made so far the Impossible CHocolate Pie and the Impossible Lasagne Pie.

How do you store your Carbquick and Carbalose flour? I keep my regular flours and baking mix in the freezer. Will this hurt these in any way?

No. That's probably the best way.

Freezing Carbalose is OK, however we do NOT recommend freezing Carbquik. Store Carbquik in a cool, dry place in an airtight container. Freezing Carbquik is a bad idea because of the fats it contains.
