There are certain products that I use more regularly than others when I bake.
I know that I have mentioned in many recipes that I use Tova Carbquik Low Carb Bake Mix.
Sometimes, a recipe will call for just the flour and not everything else that comes with a baking mix.
This is another product that I found out about when I was on a low carb diet. I have been using this ever since.
What Carbalose Flour is…
According to the folks at Tova, the folks who make both Carbalose Flour and Carbquik, Carbalose can be used in place of wheat flour and it contains 80% less carbs. Use like regular flour in most recipes. Carbalose is as close to real flour as you can get without being real flour.
Water or liquids may need slight adjustments. Increase yeast or leavening up to double the original recipe. Drop baking temperature by 25 degrees F and slightly increase cooking time.
The company also says that in most recipes, Carbalose behaves like wheat flour, because unlike similar products, it is made mostly from wheat, yet it lacks most non-fiber carbohydrates. There are products that claim to be “low carb flour”, but they just don’t function as well. They are generally made from soy protein or other non-wheat components, and are not only difficult to work with, but also taste poorly.
Carbalose is made through a unique process and contains enzyme-modified wheat, as well as plant fiber, wheat protein and some unique conditioners, enzymes and emulsifiers. Carbalose does not contain any soy protein, sugar-alcohols, dairy, animal-originated, trans-fatty, or saturated fat products. Carbalose Flour does contain soy (vegetable fiber).
