Can you eat low-carb and still enjoy bread??
Wednesday, September 19, 2012
While I was shopping today, I stumbled across a new type of bread at the bakery and I thought I would share the information..
There is a small chain of bakeries in SE Queensland, (in Australia) called Baker’s Club. They have developed a low carb, high protein bread with a GI of 17, called their Bakers club, No1 bread. It is also very low in sodium.
The nutritional content is as follows:
It is a very grainy, European style bread - very dark in colour but quite soft.
Selling for $7.50 each loaf, I don't think that it will replace other breads, but it is a great addition to the diet for those who have various restrictions which prohibit them from eating normal whole grain bread, and those who are trying to increase protein intake while reducing carbs.
I am restricted from eating bread, but I bought a loaf for my hubby to try and he declared that it was delicious and " a real hunger buster - very filling"....
Apparently, they have a internet orders site, and according to the sales assistant, it is doing really well with the bread being shipped all around Australia to health food shops, etc.
Here is the link to their web site - they also have a great selection of gluten-free breads.
