If you’re anything like me than you appreciate knowing exactly what the best low carb flours to cook with are. I was looking for flours that were low in calories, and low in carbohydrate no more than (40g of carb per 100g serve), high in fibre and low in sugar (no more than 10g per 100g)
Why is low carb so important? There are several reason and to name a few is it cuts hunger down, people who have a low carb diet and higher protein and healthy fat diet, consume fewer calories…plus they tend to lose weight more than other who eat more carbs because their blood sugar and insulin levels are more stable.
So back to the important stuff…the 7 best low carb flours are:
per 100g serve you get: 34g Fat, 4g saturated fat, 30g Carb, 30g Fibre, 22g Protein, 0g sugar, Calories 534
per 100g serve you get: 14g saturated Fat, 39g Carb, 38g Fibre, 18g Protein, 7g sugar, Calories 442
