yes, nice tasty 'bread' but still expensive bought it from the free from event in Olympia
That's the one @noblehead - kept wanting to type lowlife but I knew that wasn't right
thats 4 loaves - £4 a loaf. I pay that for gluten free bread anyway - or i can have much healthier fresh bread seems quite reasonable to me...
There's another low-carb bread called Hi-Lo:
The Livelife bread is an acquired taste, I thought it tasted awful and the slices were far too small to make a decent sandwich.
The UK average of diabetics as a percentage of the population is actually 4.6% https://www.diabetes.org.uk/prevalence-2012
So your 5% figure is pretty accurate but what you havent taken into account is that only a minute number of those 3250,000 actually eat a very low carb diet, I dont know the numbers and I doubt that anyone else does but it is going to be a very very small percentage indeed probably somewhere around a quarter of a percent as the vast majority of diabetics are able to and do eat breads of one description or another.
I doubt any of the few remaining large bakery companies would risk launching a product that only a few thousand people wanted to buy.
I agree that the vast majority of diabetics probably do eat bread, but then the vast majority of diabetics do not control their diabetes well.
When I initially read the OP, I thought "Why bother? Just don't eat bread" But maybe Hovis could make a greater name for themselves by actually producing a low carb bread and then marketing it explaining why reducing carb intake is important to diabetics (and the obese).
Sadly I feel most diabetics eat bread because they don't know it can raise their BG's and therefore cause them harm.
So yes tweeting Hovis is a great idea.
I do agree here ...but alas I also know the mountain it is...however ...tweet sent !!!!
