A normal slice of bread usually contains about 10 carbohydrates while a slice of bread made using a low carbohydrate bread mix would contain only about 3 carbohydrates. Thus, it is ideal for the ones who wish to enjoy the wonders of bread while following a low carb diet.In addition, one can prepare several other foods that include bread in the recipe as the low carbohydrate bread mix support several recipes. One can save room for other high carbohydrate foods such as pasta at the same time being well within the daily carbohydrate limits.
