Multigrain & Flax Bread Mix Review

Product Review

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.

Delicious Low Carb Rye Bread Is Possible

My loaf of Dixie Carb Counters (aka Dixie Diner) low carb Rye Bread.

Dixie Carb Counters Rye Bread Mix

This bread mix caught my eye as I was placing a recent order on Netrition.com. I like rye bread and the idea of a low carb rye bread was instantly appealing. So I decided to order the mix and give it a try.

The package from Dixie Carb Counters is very appealing and sturdy, so it arrived with no damage and ready to go. In addition to the mix, you will need 1-1/4  cup of egg whites or 5 whole large or extra large eggs. I used the liquid egg whites in mine and it worked fine. You also need 1-1/2 sticks of melted salted butter, that’s 3/4 of a cup or 12 oz. for those who measure it out. And you need 1/3 cup water. You’ll use a 9”x5” standard size bread pan as this makes a full sized loaf.

From here, it’s easy. Just mix everything in a bowl and whisk until well blended, about 1 minute of mixing, then spread into the bread pan evenly and bake. It is really a snap making it.

Let it cool on a bread rack, then slice into 24 slices or cut it in half and freeze half for use later. Here’s where I had a bit of a problem. A 3/8” slice is really hard to cut without the bread crumbling a bit. It may be easier to slice it into 12 slices, then cut each of those in half. Or perhaps if it is partially frozen, it will cut easier.

The bottom line though is the flavor. This is a delicious rye bread. It’s a light rye, not like the dark deli bread. It would go great with corned beef or pastrami. The taste is really wonderful, especially for a low carb bread. If you’ve cut it into 24 even slices, each slice is 2 net carbs.

The price on this through Netrition is $7.95 for the mix to make one loaf. Add in the eggs and the butter and you’re about a $1.00 more into it, so it’s a $9.00 loaf of bread. But at least it’s a great tasting loaf for the price.

In summary: Great taste, easy to make, and worth the price if you are craving a rye bread. I give it 2 flour-covered thumbs up.
