Low Carb Flour -vs- Traditional Flour

flour-imageLC Foods realizes that low carb baking is often a challenge because many of the substitutes for wheat flour, such as bean flour, are very carbohydrate-dense. Also many low carb flours add ingredients like sugar which adds carbohydrates.

Flours made with nuts, seeds, soy and coconut are options, but require experimenting with oven temperature, baking time and recipe ingredients.

For the best results, simply substitute our low carb flour cup for cup in your favorite recipes.  Be aware that additional hydration in your favorite recipes may be necessary due to the higher protein and fiber content of our flours as compared to traditional flour.  Also know that our flours never have added sugar or preservatives because we take your health seriously.
