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.

    My daughter works at Bakers Delight and she said their low-GI bread is pretty good too. I'd like to check this bread out for my son - he shouldn't eat wheat either but he loves it and he's a growing young man and rice cakes just don't cut it.

    It really is expensive, Isn't it? I am trying to give up bread. If I ever try any I will make it myself, I think.

    I have actually thought about trying the one we have here in US. I would freeze it in individual servings, since my hubby wouldn't eat it. But he has told me to try it. I am going to see if my grocer will order it. If not, then I will have to mail order it.

    I already pay 2-3 times more for food than I did before I changed my lifestyle, but I am getting healthy, and it will be cheaper than doctors and hospitals in the future. I am worth it. emoticon

    I'll be honest. I am shocked at the cost of gluten free products.

    Have you ever tried pumpernickel bread ? it's lower in carbs than whole wheat. I do like a nice slice of pumpernickel. That might be a good bread option for you. Rye might work too.

    I would never want to limit the amount of fruit and vegatables I can eat for bread which would take me over my carb allowence, but if that bread was available here they I may have introduced it into my diet to have a sandwich without having to worry too much about the carb allowance it was eating up. Good find!! emoticon

    looks and sounds yummy.
    I go for a whole wheat bread available here in the UK which has a multiseeded crust and also is low on salt.
    It tastes devine and fortunately is only a little more expensive than the usual whole wheat or wholemeals on offer.
    I think I'm worth it emoticon
