No one actually wants to give up bread, right? It’s something we do for health-related reasons, not because bread isn’t delicious. I mean, who could say no to a perfectly layered sandwich or a nice slice of toast to accompany their morning sunny side up eggs? No one! It’s impossible! And that’s why, when we’re faced with cutting bread out of our diets, it’s hardly a pleasant decision to make.
If you’ve ever eliminated bread from your diet, you know the next step all too well: trying to find a low-carb supplement that will hit the spot. And step 3? Being disappointed by said low-carb bread option. How annoying!
Carbonaut thought the same. And with some out-of-this-world brainstorming and recipe testing, they’ve taken one step for the food industry and one giant leap for the low-carb lovers! Their breads, ranging from gluten-free bagels to nut-free multigrain loaves, are keto-friendly, plant-based, and free of preservatives. Not only that, but they’re also vegan-friendly with zero artificial ingredients and fillers!
Less is more
Even though their bread has fewer carbs and additives, it has more of the things you really want, like more nutrients and more great taste. All of their products contain a maximum of 3 grams of net carbs per serving, while still serving up that same great taste of bread you know and love. Their team is made up of baking-lovers who strongly believe that bread should taste like bread. Now, that might sound obvious, but if it does, you probably haven’t had the misfortune of trying low-carb bread that misses the mark. And to that, we truly mean it when we say, “lucky you!” Unfortunately, those of us who know, know.
What are low net carbs?
Net carbs and carbs aren’t exactly equal. And, according to Carbonaut, living the low-carb lifestyle is all about net carbs, NOT total carbs. So, if that’s the case, what exactly are net carbs? “Net carbs are the grams of total carbohydrates in a food, minus its grams of total fibre,” explains their website.
Too many carbs can keep your body from entering a ketogenic state. And alas, according to Carbonaut, because fibre is a carb that your body can’t properly digest, it doesn’t count towards the number of carbs it takes to keep your body in ketosis.
In layperson’s terms, net carbs = total carbs – fibre. Didn’t think you’d have to do math, did you?
All about that great taste
When Carbonaut decided to venture into the world of low-carb bread, there was one thing that needed to be true: whatever they made HAD to be delicious and meet their sky-high standards. And with their soft, fluffy bakery-quality bread, we think it’s clear to see that they understood the assignment.
Bread-y for lift off? Come try it for yourself! You can find a delish selection of their breads, ranging from their gluten-free white bread, to their seeded multigrain loaves at The Sweet Potato in Toronto.
