There are many high fiber breads to choose from and many companies make them. First, look for whole wheat/grain then look on the nutrition label itself and find fiber and look at the values. Whole grain/wheat is naturally only up to 4-5 grams but some foods are actually fortified with extra fiber. They can be a lot higher in fiber (such as 7-10 grams) and lower in calories. It all depends on what you want. Something I started doing with oatmeal is to add unprocessed wheat bran to it when cooking. Doing this dramatically lowers the impact that the oatmeal has on my blood sugar after I eat it. In my experience, fiber is key for good control of my blood sugar. These are the things that work for me.

I usually buy LaTortilla Factory whole wheat low-carb wraps, it has 18g carbs, 12g dietary fiber, 1 g sugar and 8g protein for 1 wrap

I haven't ever noticed low-carb bread in our stores (haven't really looked), but I think I have seen some marked high-fiber. Unfortunately, I can't remember the brands. I would sure like to know of some, too.

I do know that if you make your own, Bob's Red Mill has a "Low-Carb" bread flour.

Another thing to consider besides the amount of protein is the level of dietary fiber in a slice of the bread. The higher the fiber value the lower the carb absorption. Breads typically have 0-5 grams of dietary fiber in a slice. It's rare to find one with 5 grams, but 4 is available. Check the labels for info.

I have seen high protein breads which offsets the carbs, you might look for those, I think Orowheat has one.

Does anyone know of a good low carb bread available at the grocery store? We don't have any Whole Foods Markets in my area. Thanks, Trish
