Low carb breads REALLY low carb?

Hi all. New to this forum, but have been doing low carb for about two and a half years. Have been happy with the progress I've seen, and many things were surprisingly easy for me to give up. However, I have always been a die-hard breadaholic, so that has been harder for me. I recently discovered a website with all kinds of fun low carb items and decided to give a low carb bread a try. I ended up with a plain bread, a cinnamon raisin, sesame seed bagels, and tortillas. I've been extremely impressed with them, HOWEVER - the back of my brain has questioned whether these items can truly be as low carb as they claim (ie: 1g net per slice of bread). I'm concerned the nutrition info isn't entirely truthful and it will affect my weight loss, for one thing. After doing a quick search online I found a few cases of "low carb breads" being proven to actually be up to 17 times the carb count the nutrition info claimed. So now I'm really wondering if these are just too good to be true? Are low carb breads REALLY low carb, can the nutrition information be trusted?

What brand did you buy? I like both Great Low Carb Bread Company and ThinSlim breads. They don't cause cravings and are mostly fiber. Whether you include fiber in your carb counts is up to you, but most people subtract it. However, if you are doing keto you should probably limit to occasional use, as generally 50 g total carbs/day a hard limit for most people doing keto.

The brand on the breads was Baker's Deluxe.

Yes, 50g/day is what I work with, since I started years ago. If these things really ARE only 1g net/slice then that's extremely easy to fit in without issue, but whether they really can be that low or not seems questionable.

I've always worked on the "net carb" system of subtracting grams of fibre from the grams of carbs, and that net is what I use to calculate my intake for the day.

I looked up that brand and while I wouldn't personally buy them because of the amount of flax and soy protein, I don't see any reason why the nutrition information would be in error.

They are expensive and often not properly represented in the nutrition labels and frequently use ingredients that I like to avoid all together. I have discovered a simple recipe that works very well. It is found at the dietdoctor site and is just called low carb bread. Might be worth a try?
