The 9 Best Brands of Low Carb Bread to Try

Best Brands of Low Carb Bread

Bread is something that many people miss on a low carb diet, which is why we’re looking at the best brands of low carb bread.

You can make your own or skip bread altogether, but why do that when you don’t have to? Bread is an incredibly versatile food. Besides, it simply tastes good.

If you can’t imagine​ doing without bread, check out these low carb options.

​For the purposes of this post, we’re focusing on bread that has no more than 6 net grams of carbs per slice. Most have less than 4 net grams of carbs.

​Nutritional details provided are for 1 slice of the pictured bread. Other varieties from the same brand may differ in their carb content, so make sure you read the labels first.

​You’ll need to decide for yourself whether each brand fits in with your macros. After all, what works for one person mightn’t be suitable for another.

​ThinSlim Foods Zero Carb Bread

ThinSlim Zero Carb Bread

This bread brand comes out on top in many low carb lists. With 0 grams of net carbs per serving, it’s easy to see why. It also has no blood sugar impact.

Ingredients: Wheat protein isolate, vital wheat gluten, oat fiber, modified wheat starch, flaxseed meal, olive oil, chicory root, yeast, salt, apple cider vinegar.

Nutrition: 45 calories, 7 grams carbs (7 grams fiber, 0 grams sugar), 7 grams protein.

Where to Find it: The bread is sold on Amazon, along with some local stores. The website for ThinSlim Foods lists stores that stock the products.  

Other Products: ThinSlim Foods has an extensive product selection, including cinnamon rolls, bagels, breadcrumbs, croutons, pasta and more. They always focus on low carb products, although the food isn’t always entirely carb-free.  

Reviews: 

Reviews for the bread are mixed.

  • ​Many people say that it is fantastic and tastes like regular bread.
  • ​Others claim it has a horrible flavor, with a texture that’s much chewier.

​This pattern is common for low carb bread. Negative reviews often come from people who expect the product to taste like regular bread. It won’t.

Substitutes need to use a completely different combination of ingredients. There’s simply no way that the final taste and texture will be the same as regular bread.

The positive reviews come from people who are aware of this.

The general idea is that the product tastes appealing for what it is. It is also chewier than regular bread. But again, that’s not too surprising.  

​Personal Thoughts

The lack of carbs makes this an appealing choice and many of the ingredients are healthy. Still, the bread is high in gluten. Even if you’re not gluten intolerant, high levels of gluten aren’t the best choice for health. It is also more processed than I would like.

​Low Carb Fresh Baked Multi Grain Bread

Low Carb Fresh Baked Multi Grain Bread

This bread is a bit different. You won’t find it pre-packaged in a grocery store, as it is baked fresh when you order it. This is the next best thing to making the bread yourself.

Ingredients: Wheat protein isolates, resistant wheat starches, brown flax seed, vital wheat gluten, butter, coconut oil, inulin chicory root fiber, salt, instant dry yeast, calcium propionate, organic stevia rebaudiana leaf, natural herbal extracts, natural luo han guo monk fruit, natural caramel color and natural enzymes.

Nutrition: 50 calories, 9.5 grams carbs (8.5 grams fiber, 0 grams sugar), 11 grams protein.

Where to Find it: This bread needs to be ordered through The LC Foods Market site.

Other Products: The brand offers many low carb products, including bagels, dinner rolls, hot dog buns and more.

Reviews:

Customers are overwhelmingly positive about the bread, which is very encouraging.

Kyndra from Peace Love and Low Carb has a detailed review of the bread, including her own experiences and some fantastic photos.

​Personal Thoughts

​Not only does this bread taste good, but it’s also high in fiber and protein. This should make it ideal for weight loss. The biggest limitation is that, once again, the bread isn’t gluten-free. It also uses stevia as a sweetener – a decision that may not suit everyone.

Barely Bread Sliced Loaf

Barely Bread Sliced Loaf

Barely Bread uses a different combination of ingredients to others, including a focus on eggs. This is also a grain-free and a gluten-free product

Ingredients: Egg whites, eggs, water, unsweetened applesauce, almond flour, psyllium husk, coconut oil, coconut flour, sweet potato flour, flax seed meal, almond butter, hazelnut flour, apple cider vinegar, honey, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon.

Nutrition: 90 calories, 6 grams carbs (5 grams fiber, 1 gram sugar), 3 grams protein

Where to Find it: The product can be purchased online, including on Amazon, Shop Gourmet and Gluten Free Mall. Of these places, only Gluten Free Mall allows you to buy one loaf at a time. It can sometimes be found locally as well, like in Whole Foods.

Other Products: Barely Bread does have some other products, including baguettes, bagels and a savory roll. Some of these come in two flavors. The combination of ingredients is similar across the products.

Reviews:

There aren’t enough reviews to know whether the bread is any good. Some people suggest that it is dry, while others find it perfect when toasted.

On a related note, you don’t get much bread per loaf. This isn’t immediately obvious when you buy the bread, as it comes in a box.

The size is a significant limitation, largely because the bread is expensive. You’re often paying more than $10 for an 11 oz loaf of bread.

​Personal Thoughts

​While Barely Bread does their packaging well, they’re not the most amazing option out there. The main advantages are that the bread is gluten-free and that there is only 1 gram of net carbs per slice.

​Great Low Carb Company Sourdough Bread

Great Low Carb Company Sourdough Bread

This is another interesting choice, as the bread looks similar to conventional products. The low carb content makes it a perfect choice for keto dieters.

Ingredients: Water, vital wheat gluten, oat fiber, almond flour, flax seed meal, wheat fiber, wheat protein isolate, modified wheat starch, virgin olive oil, yeast, calcium propionate, enzyme, vinegar, salt, stevia.

Nutrition: 60 calories, 8 grams carbs (7 grams fiber, 0 grams sugar), 7 grams protein.

Where to Find it: Products can be ordered through the Great Low Carb Bread Company’s website and on Amazon. There is also a store locator to help you find local retailers.

Other Products: The brand offers various other bread products, like bagels, hot dog buns and muffins. They also have related items, including pasta, cookies, brownies and breadcrumbs.

Reviews:

Reviews show the same variation that is often found with low carb bread. This includes many positive reviews and some that are less enthusiastic.

Negative reviews talk about a rubbery texture and a less-than-appealing taste.

Some reviewers suggest that the bread tastes better when toasted. Serving the bread with other food can also help.

​Personal Thoughts

​The end result here is similar to other brands – the bread is good, as long as you’re not expecting it to be the same as traditional bread.

Julian Bakery Paleo Thin Bread

Julian Bakery Paleo Thin Bread

As the name suggests, breads from Julian Bakery are paleo-compliant. This means that there’s a strong reliance on natural ingredients. The breads are also grain-free and gluten-free.

Ingredients: Blanched almond flour, egg white powder, organic psyllium, organic coconut flour, organic tapioca starch, potassium bicarbonate, sweet potato powder, Himalayan salt.

Nutrition: 90 calories, 7 grams carbs (4 grams fiber, 0 grams sugar), 6 grams protein.

Where to Find it: Julian Bakery breads are sold through the company’s website. They have many other paleo and keto products that are worth trying as well. The bread is sometimes sold through Whole Foods as well.

Other Products: There are also three other items in the Paleo Thin Bread range. These are Almond Bread, Coconut Bread and Seed Medley. The first two rely on low carb flour and have 1 gram of net carbs per slice. The Seed Medley has 2 grams of net carbs per slice.

Reviews:

This is another case where the reviews differ considerably. There are various positive reviews, especially on the site for Julian Bakery.

Yet, the Amazon listing only averages 2.5 stars.  Many of those reviews suggest that the taste is very unappealing and that the bread doesn’t keep for long.

Reviewers that did like the taste said that the bread was better toasted or served with something.

Because the bread is sold in local stores, as well as online, the reviews don’t provide a complete picture. There may be many more people who enjoy the bread.

​Personal Thoughts

The ingredients for this brand are much closer to what you might use when making bread yourself. The paleo component is fantastic as well. Another selling point is the different types of bread. With four products to choose from, most people should find at least on​e that fits their needs.

​That being said, the reviews suggest that not everyone will enjoy the bread. As preferences differ so much, you may need to try it out for yourself.

SoLo Carb Bread Harvest Wheat

SoLo Carb Bread

This brand may look less appealing than most, as it contains wheat flour, is somewhat processed and isn’t gluten-free. It also contains more carbs than many other options.

The pattern does have advantages too. It means that the product more closely resembles regular bread. The brand may work well for people who struggle with the taste and texture of anything lower in carbs.

Ingredients: Vital wheat gluten, wheat bran, wheat flour [Wheat, niacin (B3), reduced iron, thiamine mononitrate (B1), riboflavin (B2), folic acid (B9)], oat bran, vegetable glycerin, milled flax seed, canola oil, malt extract, butter (milk), salt, sesame seed, millet seed, cultured wheat flour, eggs, yeast.

Nutrition: 60 calories, 6 grams carbs (2 grams fiber, 0 grams sugar), 5 grams protein.

Where to Find it: SoLo Carb Bread can be found on Amazon. People in Wisconsin can also buy it in some local stores.

Other Products: The company also offers Artisan Rye and Country White bread.

Reviews:

Reviews are surprisingly positive for a low carb bread. Many people say that it almost tastes like real bread. The largest difference is a slight chewiness, which is easy enough to get used to.

​Personal Thoughts

​The bread is a good choice for anyone who can eat gluten. Even with the gluten and processing, this is healthier than regular bread.

Oasis Flaxseed Bread

Oasis

Oasis Flaxseed Bread uses sprouted wheat, which is thought to offer more health benefits. The ingredients mean the end product is very similar to regular bread, despite the lower carb content.

Ingredients: Sprouted organically grown wheat berries, water, vital wheat gluten, flaxseed, non-GMO soy flour, whey protein, sea salt, cultured wheat (wheat flour, vinegar), vinegar, yeast, dough conditioner (wheat flour, malted barley flour, ascorbic acid, enzymes).

Nutrition: 50 calories, 7 carbs (1 gram fiber, 0 grams sugar).

Where to Find it: You can find the bread on Amazon. The Oasis website also offers a store locator to find places that physically stock the products.

Other Products: There is a low carb veggie bread as well as flaxseed. Oasis has many other types of bread as well, but there are no other low carb options.

Reviews:

This bread is purchased less often than most other items on this list. However, when people do buy it, the reviews tend to be positive.

Reviewers mention that the bread tends to taste like they would expect bread to. That’s not very common for a low carb product.

The most common complaint is that the bread is too expensive. It may still be worth the price for some people, depending on your preferences and needs.  

​Personal Thoughts

​If you don’t mind the price, this could be a decent brand to try. It is still lower in carbs than regular bread, without compromising taste or texture.

The Base Culture Sandwich Bread

The Base Culture Sandwich Bread

This is another brand that is higher in carbs. This can be easily seen by the use of honey as a sweetener.

Even so, the bread is a good intermediate between low carb and regular bread. You’re getting 6 grams of carbs per large slice. If that seems like too much, you could always have half a slice as a serving.

The bread is also paleo compliant and gluten-free, making it suitable for a wide audience. 

Ingredients: Egg, almond butter, cashew butter, water, honey, coconut oil, coconut flour, golden flaxseed meal, almond flour, apple cider vinegar, sea salt, baking soda.

Nutrition: 160 calories, 8 grams carbs (2 grams fiber, 4 grams sugar), 5 grams protein.

Where to Find it: The bread is sold on Amazon, on the Base Culture website and in many local stores.

Other Products: The same brand offers pumpkin bread and banana bread. Just make sure you check the ingredients. While all the products are paleo, they may not be low carb.

Reviews:

Reviews are decent for this type of product. For example, the Amazon listing has an average of around 3.5 stars. Roughly half of these give it the best possible rating.   

Negative reviews focus on the idea that the bread is expensive and that it doesn’t have the same texture as conventional bread. Both issues are to be expected for a paleo product.

​Personal Thoughts

​The carb content may be too high for some people. Still, the balance of ingredients and nutrition make this bread a desirable choice, if you can fit it in your macros.

Outer Aisle Gourmet Cauliflower Sandwich Thins

Outer Aisle Gourmet Cauliflower Sandwich Thins

This product is a little different than the others. The bread alternative is made from cauliflower. This makes it naturally gluten-free and low in carbs. There are also fewer ingredients to worry about.

Ingredients: Cauliflower, egg, parmesan cheese (cultured milk, enzymes, salt) and sunflower lecithin.

Nutrition: 50 calories, 2 grams carbs (1 gram fiber, 1 gram sugar), 4 grams protein.

Where to Find it: The sandwich thins can be found on Amazon, although the shipping costs are considerable. Outer Aisle also has a store finder on their website. This helps you find local places to purchase the products.

Other Products: Outer Aisle sells a cauliflower pizza crust as well.

Reviews:

Reviews are more positive than for most of the other products discussed. This may be partly because people know what to expect.

The biggest complaint is that the product is advertised as paleo but does contain parmesan cheese. Whether this is an issue will depend on your dietary preferences.

​Personal Thoughts

​The idea of cauliflower-based bread won’t appeal to everyone. Still, this product gets around many of the issues that other low carb breads face. This is worth trying if you find that you don’t enjoy products that try to closely mimic bread.
