Frequently Asked Questions
Are the products gluten free?
Our products are not gluten free (we also do not advertise it as such). Although, what we use is called Vital Gluten and it is in short, a pure plant-based protein.
A company in Sweden washes/deconstructs the wheat gluten until ALL the starches/FODMAPs/sugars are washed off and only the pure gluten (protein) remains which is then dried out into a yellowish powder, similar to whey protein powder.
We use this to bind instead of eggs. You get many grades of “gluten”, however, the one we use specifically is super high in protein, so it has been proven safe for most of our gluten intolerant/sensitive clients.
We have many clients who are gluten intolerant and have even had a handful celiac be able to use our products, some even current.
We do however suggest you consult your GP first or us if you are celiac and want to try it.
Although we are not doctors or give medical advice, the products definitely do work for a wide range of people with different intolerances/allergies/sensitivities and should definitely be given a chance.
This is truly a unique product.
We also believe FODMAPS (sugar) causes the inflammation, like all sugar does really… and not the gluten (protein) necessarily.
Here is something of interest we found:
Is it banting friendly? What about the oats?
We use a bit of oats as a source to activate the yeast and all that remains of the oats after baking is the oat fibre. This is part of the reason our breads are so low in carbs.
Officially lab tested at just under 7g carbs/100g. Our products have also been proven to be ketogenic & diabetic friendly.
Have a read through our customer reviews on our Facebook page, numerous ones are from clients with diabetes and the oats do not affect them, since only the oat fibre remains.
If you’re a banter, we do not advertise as banting friendly, for technical reasons like this but once again, this is ketogenic bread that cannot spike your sugar levels and in other words cannot take you out of ketosis… which is essentially what Banting is about.
Is it Diabetic Friendly/sugar free?
It most definitely is. This is who we cater for!
Our products do not spike sugar levels, making it a perfect bread replacement for anyone with insulin problems. As a bonus it is also wheat free, vegan friendly, it stores amazingly well (frozen), it toasts wonderfully, but our number one priority is keeping those sugar levels constant.
Normal white bread contains between 25 to 40g carbs per slice (5 to 8 teaspoons sugar)
Rye and Low Gi breads contain about 15- 25g carbs per slice (3 to 5 teaspoons sugar)
Our bread contains 1.2g carbs per slice (not even a quarter teaspoon sugar). So there truly is no comparison.
What products are Vegan Friendly?
Bread, hamburger, pita, hotdog, bagel, wrap, pizza, activated charcoal buns, mini buns, French loaf, crumbs, crackerbread.
