I have not received any promotional items to review and no one from any of the companies whose products I review have asked me to do so. I have purchased the product and am giving my honest opinion about it. Should any company send me a product to try, I will state it up front and will still give my honest opinion.
I just made a loaf of bread using Dixie Carb Counters One Step Homemade Multigrain & Flax Bread Mix, then I gobbled down a slice. savoring every bite. Yum!
Making this was very simple to do. I just added 1 cup liquid egg whites, one large egg, 1 1/2 sticks (3/4 cup) of melted butter and 1/3 cup water to the mix that came in the pouch, stirred it together until all the flour was completely mixed in, then poured it into my slightly larger than normal silicon bread pan. I popped it into my toaster oven, which was preheated to 325 degrees for 50 minutes. The result is an almost three inch high loaf of bread that is moist and delicious!
The taste of this bread is really very much like a wheat bread and many of the ingredients include wheat– like wheat protein, wheat gluten, wheat bran and unbleached wheat flour. The flax meal is slightly nutty and blends in well. The loaf makes 24 slices, about 3/8″ thick each, and is only 2 net carbs per slice.
This bread is great with butter and sugar free jam or it makes a great sandwich – two slices is only 4 net carbs, so that’s hard to beat.
The only drawback is that the bread should be eaten in three days and if you’re the only one eating it, that probably won’t work. But, the good news is that it can be frozen. So you can slice and wrap your bread in plastic wrap and freeze it for up to 3 months. Try wrapping it in packets you will likely use in two days, say three or four slices in a pack.
So, I give this bread two flour-covered thumbs up for great flavor, easy to make and reasonably priced when looking at a low carb bread products. I ordered mine from Netrition.com, but you can also order from Dixiediner.com. The price at Netrition is lower than at the Dixie web site and you can get your entire order shipped for $4.95 in the U.S.
