    I have 100 % rye I don't think a lot of the breads advertised as low carb are really low carb.enough for diabetics.

    I made these rolls last week. I took them out of the oven after 50 minutes and they were beautifully well risen.
    Then they collapsed and were soggy inside.
    I don't know where I went wrong. I used ground almonds. Is that correct or do they need the higher protein almond flour like the one made by Sukrin?

    Mr E is the cook in this household and he used ground almonds. They haven't collapsed but they are sometimes hollow. They do look a little underdone if you pull them apart. I hope you make them again, as I love them! They really are bread like to my mind! I will be trying them toasted tomorrow!

    Thank you. Yes I will try them again.
    I have just looked at this page of Maria's site and will use the suggestion for deflating rolls to reduce the baking powder to 11/2 teaspoons.

    I wonder if loo rolls are made from Ryvita or vice versa - I could never get on with its cardboardy taste pre-diabetes and I've never considered eating it since... However my little dogs enjoy chomping on an occasional loo roll (neat) but I suspect they'd enjoy a buttered one even more as they're rather enthusiastic about the fatty part of my LCHF diet.

    PS Recipe for a loo roll sandwich:
    loo roll then filling then loo roll again
    (based on my little sister's recipe for apple pie done for her homework 50 odd years ago:
    Pastry then apple then pastry again
    - I still laugh about it when I'm baking, but I never found out what her teacher thought of her magnificent culinary effort though... :p:p

    Hi

    Someone on these forums recently suggested a particular low-carb bread, Livlife, which I've tried and it's lovely. I've only found it available on one of the supermarkets, though, and it's £1.59 (£31.8/100gm) for a small sliced loaf but it is only 14.6gms carbs /100mgs and is 3.8gms/slice - yes, a small slice. It does compare favourably to Burgen, which is 25.0gm/100mgs carbs, 11gms a slice for the larger loaf and 9.1/slice for the smaller loaf (29.3gms/100gms ??? - think there must be a misprint somewhere along the line so check it out)

    So, it's LivLife (31.8p/100gm) for me now :) although I don't eat it very often, only when I need some carbs (ie low glucose levels) Burgen, larger loaf, is £0.19/100gm; smaller £0.20/100gm)

    :)

    Again I advocate Nairns Organic Super Seeded oatcakes at 5g per oatcake! They are so so yummy!

    It depends what you're wanting to 'sandwich'. I thinly slice cucumber to make salmon rolls. Backed or fried large slices of cauliflower could contain filling. Making wraps from scratch with a low carb flour substitute. Almond and Coconut flour are examples. Nut breads are another option but will be pricey.
    Sadly, I've yet to see a really good example of low carb bread.

    None! If I'm going to allow myself extra carbs, I'd much rather do it eating fruit than tastless bread (or oat cakes - yuck). After living without grains for this long, the only one I occasionally miss is rice. The rest, especially wheat, are so tasteless - I really don't understand why anybody wants to eat them, but to each their own.

    [​IMG] The fact that one of the world experts on gluten (Dr Alessio Fasano) stated that "no human can digest gluten" makes me even more bemused about why anyone wants to eat the stuff - it's one of the "usual suspects" in any kind of autoimmune disease - completely avoidable and an unacceptable risk in my world. Oh well, down off my [​IMG]

    I don't know it's very dense and chewy anything is better than wheat when it comes to bread (I think)

    I'm a type 1 who chooses to lower-carb. I find it easy to simply not ever have bread, regardless of whether it's 'standard' or lower carb. I have found ways to neither want it nor need it. And I really, really don't miss it, after nearly a year of creatively avoiding it.

    I don't have toast, cereal or porridge for breakfast - just eggs, or a massive fry-up at the weekend, sans toast or bread.

    I don't have a sandwich for lunch - I have either homemade soup with no bread, or a huge very ingredient-varied salad. Both of these take much longer to make than a sandwich, but I do both soups and boxed salads in batches every few days. I can easily take either of these to work with me, or if I'm out on a job at lunchtime I take salad*, not soup! Easy to eat in the (parked) car or wherever.

    I LOVE making and eating food. Cooking and food preparation are great loves of mine. I make the time to do it, because it's worth it.

    Removing bread entirely, rather than using a replacement product, suits me very well.

    :)

    *and I try not to forget to take a fork and a napkin.....

    I'm wheat and gluten intolerant as well as prediabetic so it's so difficult for me. But have started eating organic rice cakes
    With lots of butter or what ever you want 4g per slice from Amazon. They are very nice never thought I would say that about rice cakes

    Warburtons protein range. Easy to get hold of and not like chewing on a bag of linseed. A good compromise on my levels. Only way to tell is try and test. I prefer the thins

    Nairns tend to be around the 4g - just depends on which brand/type you have.
