How is your Lower Carb Bread different to other Lower Carb Breads in the market?

It does not contain soy protein. Our Complete Protein bread also contains sprouted seeds, inulin and prebiotic fibre to aid with digestion.

Our breads sit at the premium end of the bread aisle. Both breads are created using the best ingredients to give us superior nutritional values. We create products that provide customers with the best products nutritionally and won’t sacrifice that in order to achieve a lower price.
How do you get the carbs so low?
Due to the high proportion of vegetable proteins and seeds, such as sunflower seeds, linseed and sesame seeds, and at the same time a low proportion of cereal flours in the recipe, the protein content in our protein breads can be kept high and the carbohydrate content low.

All your products are Low GI – what does that mean?
The GI method was developed in order to rank equal carbohydrate portions of different food according to the extent to which they increase blood glucose levels after eaten.
Using glucose as the reference foods (GI = 100), foods with a GI value less than 55 are currently considered to be low-GI foods.
Foods with a GI value between 56-69 are medium- or moderate-GI foods, and
Foods with a GI value of 70 or more are high-GI foods.
Similar to GI values, GL values are useful for helping people identify which types and amounts of foods will produce relatively lower blood glucose responses after consumption.
Currently, the consensus is that GL values of 10 or less are low GL.
GL values between 11-19 are medium GL, and
GL values of 20 or more are high GL values.
