    I like Tesco’s high protein loaf which is 9g per slice.

    It looks like Asda has discontinued this bread, I’ve been in to a couple of stores and they say they’re not stocking it any more and it’s showing as unavailable on their website. Such a shame, I’d finally found something tasty and low enough in carbs after Lidl stopped doing their rolls and now, disappointingly, the hunt starts again

    My local Polish supermarket is a handy source of protein bread - when I just have to have a corned beef and tomato sandwich. It is a bit disconcerting to become suddenly unable to read the labels, but also amusing in a way.
    The one near me is now getting more stick on labels in English to put on the back of the packets, so perhaps they are seeing more interest from locals - they are interesting shops to visit.

    The Polish bread is 7.5 gm of carbs for TWO slices. Small ones, admittedly, but still a sandwich.

    My Asda has just stopped selling the Protein bread which was 7.9g carbs 100g and 22g protein. Has anyone found a suitable substitute please.
    I can get Sainsbury's HiLo bread but it is not a patch on the Protein bread.
    Thanks

    No longer, I am sad to say. They were withdrawn quite a long time ago now.

    I am also struggling with the Burgen Soya and Linseed that I have been eating since the Lidl rolls discontinued. Our local Sainsburys and local Tesco haven't had any for a week or two. I am hoping it is just a blip. I have been trying Hovis Lower Carb, which is alright but only alright. Not as nice as the Burgen.

    @Bluetit1802 I like Tesco’s High Protein Bread - like you I’ve tried the Hovis Lower Carb which is not as nice as the Tesco’s but will do if no other us available.

    Our Asda still sells Protein bread.
    Sometimes they have none in stock, sometimes they have lots

    I buy Profusion protein bread, organic as well, and no nasties I can find off Amazon or EBay - usually in packs of 5 and then I freeze four and defrost as needed. I pay £14.59 for five. Bit pricey but I really like it and it does toast, though obviously not like normal bread !
