    • Hey Angie,

      Yes, you could put the formed dough in a loaf pan. Keep an eye on it when it’s proofing though so it doesn’t go too far over the top before baking. I hope this helps.

      Thanks,

  • I am super confused about the Carbohydrates. The package that the Carbalose Flour came in says 46g of carbs per 100g of Carbalose flour. 100g is 1/2 cup of Carbalose Flour. If it takes 3 cups of Carbalose Flour, how are the carbs per serving so low in the bread? This is so new to me, and I am trying to lose some weight, lol.

    • Hi Eric,

      Do forgive my late reply. The number of carbs per serving depends on how thick or thin you slice your bread. The total carb per slice is 8 grams, but 5 grams of that is indigestible fiber, so the total net carbs count is actually 3 grams per slice. All the nutritional information was automatically generated by a nutrition app so I depend on that for accuracy. I hope this helps!

      Thanks,

      • My first try with carbalose flour and fairly pleased. I used a bread machine added 2 tsp of gluten and 1/4 C of olive oil. However the bread is tasteless, so I will be adding something to enhance the taste. After much calculating , I settled on using grams as my index for calculating the various values. End result – 31 g per serving equal 14.5 carbs , 9 g of fiber for 5.5 g net carb.
        Also, the nutrition values various quite a bit , but I finally settled on the nutrition facts supplier of the flour Tova Industries

        • Hi Frank,

          Glad you’re pleased with the results! Baking is all about tweaking and experimenting to find what you like. You are free to season the flour as you like just make sure not to add anything that will increase carb count.

      • Something does not make sense. The bread recipe calls for 300 grams of Carbalose flour. Nutrition Facts supplied by Tova indicates 100 gram of Carbalose flour contains 48 grams of carbs and 29 grams of dietary fiber hence 300g of Carbalose flour equals 144 grams of carbs and 87 grams of dietary fiber. By my calculation, total carbs =18 grams (144/8) and 11 (R) (87/8) grams of dietary fiber for net carbs of 7 (R) grams. I desperately want to be in error of my calculations and live with your 3 net carbs per slice

        • Hi Frank,

          The carb count per slice will vary based on how thick you make your slices. Hence this recipe will vary in carb count. You can get a more accurate measure by weighing your slices so that you don’t go over your allotted amount. Hope this helps!
