    Looks like a type of pumpernickel. Where did you see it?

    Asda. They also have a Warburtons protein loaf that is 9.3g carbs per slice.

    That's strange, I just searched and found it again. Were you signed in? Maybe it's available in my area but not yours?

    I live miles away from one too but get my week's shopping delivered as shops local to me are rubbish for things like this.

    I'm ordering some to arrive on Monday so I will report back what it's like

    Very interesting - thanks! But buyers beware - Schneider Brot make lots of breads with names similar to this but with lots more carbs. As far as I can find out, this one is only available from Asda.

    I followed the ASDA link and there are a lot of "Protein" items but only this bread seems low carb. What market are high protein items aimed at, maybe vegetarian body builders?

    Body builders, not just vegetarian ones. Many of them are not very bright AND have no idea of nutrition. They believe that the more low calorie, high protein food they consume the more muscular they will become. They have no idea that the amount of protein we can absorb at any one time is quite limited. Many have not even grasped that protein comes in many forms, often without a label proclaiming the amount. I have seen one at my gym eat a whole tin of tuna and then hastily reach for a high protein shake to feed his muscles. Even dafter, the high protein fashion threatens to take over from the low gluten one in the general population, who seem to imagine that if we eat like body builders, our muscles will grow all by themselves without our taking the trouble to exercise them.

    I have eaten the Lidl High Protein rolls (for their low carb content) almost every day for nearly 2 years and I am a perfect example of the fact that it does not increase muscles.

    Maybe if you had truly believed your muscles would grow after each roll, it would have come true. Another current fashion in sport is the belief in mind over matter.

    I am in Yorkshire and yes I was signed in. I was wondering the same thing. Maybe not selling in my area.

    Turns out I won't be reporting back what it's like, it wasn't in stock so they are sending me a substitute of rye and sunflower seed bread.

    I found it in Asda yesterday, it tastes sort of similar to the Lidl rolls. I had one slice with no ill effects.

    There are five "slices" in the 250g ack, so each slice is 50g, so just halve the 100g nutritional value. So just under 4g of carbs per slice.

    Just bought some at Asda Had a slice. Taste wise very nice, not as strong a flavour that you get with rye breads.

    Looks and sounds similar to these German protein breads which I can get delivered from Ocado or Amazon
    https://www.ocado.com/webshop/product/Carbzone-Low-Carb-Protein-Plus-Bread/386867011
    https://www.ocado.com/webshop/product/Carbzone-Low-Carb-Protein-Bread/304465011
    Both freeze well, the second one also has a longer shelf life than the other
    I find most things labelled protein bread have quiite a high carb count and send my sugars bonkers, but these are perfect for my body
    Edit - tastewise I prefer the 2nd one of the two Ive given links for - it also toasts better

    I found an even lower carb protein bread 'chleb proteinowy' at my local Polish delicatessen, - 7.5 percent carbs.

    I buy this all the time, either from Amazon or ASDA. I love it and find a slice of it very satisfying. Highly recommend it !
