Low Carb Keto Bread Mix
Our signature bread mix is 100% keto friendly, very low net carb, high fibre, gluten free and just the thing to make it easier to follow a healthy diet for the whole family.
When cooking gluten free and very low carb there’s many challenges in creating a bread that doesn’t crumble, is not too heavy or can pass the fussy kids taste test! It definitely takes practice and thankfully there are hundreds of great tips and free recipes available online.
The addition of the whisked egg whites to these bread recipes can make all the difference between a heavy loaf and one that can rise and has more of a bread-like taste and feel. To make a fluffier lighter bread simply adjust the formulation yourself to use less flour mix and more egg whites, simple.
Each pack contains enough mix for 2 large loafs or 14 buns.

What to do with the surplus egg yolks? Many healthy dishes call for egg yolks and a quick google will reveal hundreds of recipes with our personal favourite being Coconut Oil Mayonnaise.
Note: We have chosen not to use Xanthan Gum in our Keto bread mix because although it helps to substitute the binding properties of gluten it may result in wind and bloating in some. However it may be added as desired for greater binding properties and to reduce / replace the requirement for eggs.
Also, we prefer to use Flaxseed uncrushed, because only in their original seed form do they maintain freshness.
