    @Sue192 yes I've made it; found it hard to get all the ingredients mixed without over-mixing but it tastes fine and to my taste a lot better than the off-the-shelf white(ish) low carb options. I've yet to experiment with variations; I want to add seeds etc. I actually used pea protein isolate as that was what they had at my health food store and you do need a protein isolate. I don't know why but gather that the protein concentrate doesn't work the same way - maybe someone else can answer that :)

    Thanks @hh1 - noted about the isolate. Not only are we learning about a different way of cooking/eating, we're turning into chemists! I'll call into my local health food store (which is a good one) and see what they've got.

    There is a Sainsburys in the next town (as well as a small Waitrose which didn't stock any low-carb bread on the last visit) so hopefully they'll have that bread. I feel a trip coming on; thanks @shelley262!

    My Sainsburys told me that they only have six loaves delivered twice a week and they end up reducing it as it doesn’t sell well, that is until they reduce it! If there’s none there I always ask when the next delivery is due then pop back. I’ve never struck lucky and got it when it was reduced though :grumpy:

    I doubt they would deliver one loaf every 2 or 3 weeks! We prefer to shop in the shop and don't do on-line shopping.

    No its a minimum £40 order for online deliveries!
    I make sure i have 1 or 2 in the freezer as backups (due to sainsburys having very unpredictable availability)via ocado when i do a monthly online shop, I buy them from my local sainsburys the rest of the month

    I was sent some when they lanunched, but to be honest they are so expensive for what they are. I suspect egg white beaten with a bit of psyllium husk 9which they use themselves), maybe a bit of oat fibre for good measure,and you could make them yourself. they also don't have worked in flavour too well to be honest, so it really tastes like cardboard no matter what you have with it :(
