Bread has been a staple for many generations and is a key component of many people’s diets. However, bread is relatively high in carbohydrates yet low in fibre, especially white bread made from refined grains. When consumed in high amounts and for prolonged periods, refined grains have a negative impact on both your health and weight.
Reducing the amount of carbohydrates intake in your diet by eliminating the consumption of bread may help people lose weight or lower their risk of chronic diseases such as diabetes.
With a growing population of diabetics in Singapore, we are seeing more bread alternatives options available in recent years.
You can try out these low-carb bread alternatives or keto bread from our keto bakery in Singapore. These bread alternatives allow you to continue enjoying some of your favorite food, whilst making sure your diet is manageable. Here we share three low-carb bread alternatives that you can try when you’re on a ketogenic diet.
1. Sesame Seed Buns
Sesame seeds are a popular ingredient used around the world, and it is most often seen as a topping for hamburger buns in fast food restaurants. To take this burger bun up a notch so that people on a keto-diet can enjoy, we have “keto-fied” it. Baked fresh daily using almond flour, psyllium husks, apple cider vinegar as the key ingredients. Our keto buns are deliciously low-carbs and gluten-free as well!
2. Cloud Bread
Aside from sesame seed buns, another low-carb bread alternative is cloud bread. Cloud bread is a protein-rich alternative to regular bread and is generally popular amongst people on a low-carb or ketogenic diet. It does not require low-carb flour like almond or coconut. Instead, it uses cream cheese and eggs to achieve a light and airy texture.
3. Keto Bread
While our keto bakery does not carry cloud bread, we have Keto Bread that is sugar-free. Not only is our Keto Bread baked fresh daily, we also use inulin instead of sugar or honey to feed the yeast. Inulin is a type of soluble fibre and prebiotic found in many plants. Research has linked it to several health benefits, such as improving digestive health, helping control diabetes, and aiding weight loss.
Oftentimes, inulin is added to processed foods to replace sugar, alter the texture, and also provide health benefits. Do note that one of the key ingredients in our Keto Bread is vital wheat gluten, hence this item is not suitable for those on the gluten-free diet.
While low-carb and keto bread taste good on their own, you can always get keto spreads to elevate the flavours. Our keto spreads are made with whole food ingredients and are also preservative-free. We currently offer three different flavours - Keto Kaya, Keto Hazelnut, Keto Peanut Butter. You can always pair them along with our Keto Buns or Keto Bread for a healthy keto breakfast or tea-break.
Even though regular, refined-grain bread makes up a large part of our diet, it can be easily replaced with healthier and more nutritious alternatives* like low-carb or keto bread. Most people on a ketogenic or low-carb diet are generally quick to adjust to the taste and texture of it. Once you’ve become familiar with these alternatives, you may not notice the lack of regular bread in your diet.
Transitioning to a healthy low-carb or ketogenic diet can be relatively easy if you have the right information and know where to get your foods from.
