Keto Bread and Pastry Flour - Wheat
Our product does contain wheat. We often get concerns that this makes our product not a keto friendly food or that it's not friendly for diabetics and those following a low carb life style.
In short, this is false. A ketogenic diet requires a limit in carbohydrates (typically 50g NET carbohydrates per day or less to stay in ketosis, often 20g NET carbohydrates is used as a limit for more strict adherence).
For both of these instances, Keto Bread & Pastry Flour is fully acceptable. It contains 3g NET carbohydrates per 1/4 cup keeping it well within the daily limit of 20-50 NET carbs. Our bread recipe itself only contains 2.2 NET carbs/slice as you aren't often eating 1/4 cup of plain flour on it's own.
Wheat often gets a bad rep in keto communities because it's high in carbohydrates but with our flour we utilize "vital wheat gluten", which is the protein extracted from wheat. The protein itself is extremely low in carbohydrates and, is on it's own, a great source of protein. You can think of it as similar to almond flour with almost the same level of carbohydrates per cup.
We also use a very small amount of unbleached organic wheat flour in our mix. This is often mistaken as a main ingredient and likely to knock someone out of ketosis. Again, this is just simply not the case. We use a minimal quantity of this flour to improve the texture of baked goods. That's it's only purpose. The carbohydrates attributed to the unbleached organic wheat flour per 1/4 cup of Keto Bread & Pastry Flour are just 1.5g (of the total 3g NET carbs).
Again, it's not the wheat that knocks you out of ketosis, it is the carbohydrates themselves. So remove most of the carbohydrates and wheat products can be completely keto friendly and offer the benefit of better flavour and texture in low carb baking.
*Lastly, we do want to stress, if you are celiac or have a confirmed gluten allergy, then that's the only time you would want to avoid our Keto Bread & Pastry Flour.
