    Hovis lower carb. Just under 10 g per slice. I have a slice in the morning so I can take my tablets. It is half my daily carb allowance.

    Asda sometimes sell a bread called "Protein Bread" - more like a rye bread in texture and flavour than a traditional bread. Only 7.8g carbohydrate per 100g. However it is often out of stock (or was when I last looked)
    HiLo is available from Sainsburys

    Tesco make a high protein Bread and Hovis make a Pumpkin and Sunflower Bread - both 10 carbs per slice.

    I have been making my own and have tried many recipes. These are the best in my opinion and only 2g carb and nearest to the real thing. I make batches and keep them in freezer for when I feel like some bread. Honestly amazing

    I'd suggest just having more of what you'd normally put in the sandwich on a plate would be better.
    The best low carb bread is no bread at all.
