    Anyone have any experience with this product? Another thing I picked up from that back channel discussion mentioned in the starch blocker posting. I know that this is wheat, but I have far fewer concerns about being a grain than the attendant carbs, especially if I don't use it often.


    The consensus of users seems to be, "It works great!" Some nuancing due to it's different texture and makeup, but very usable. Warning, it does have a tiny bit of transfat, the maker fesses up to it readily. It just shows as zero in the nutrition label due to the rounding down legality.

    A bit of light duty research: http://www.helium.com/items/770774-carbquik-recipes-the-hype-and-the-truth


    Recipes: http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/recipereview/showcat.php?cat=all&stype=1&si=carbquik


    It seems to be available only at Netrition.com, a search didn't show any other seller.


    But also on their site is a Bob's Low Carb Flour: http://www6.netrition.com/bobs_lc_bake_mix_page.html So, maybe a local Whole Foods has it, too. The WF website search is worthless once again. It does have 6 net carbs per only 1/4 cup. Still, a lot better than the 20 net carbs of my Jiffy Mix, but not as good as the 2 grams net of Carbquik (Which uses 1/3 cup instead of Bob's 1/4 cup.)


    What say you?

    Hi there! I have been following a low carb eating plan for over a year, and tried the Carbquik but didn't like the "twang." Check out this link for some helpful info--I posted there also. Good luck!

    Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God. And remember the richest person is not the one who has the most, but the one who needs the least.

    ls, what is that "twang?" I noticed in that post someone described it as a bitterness. So why would bitterness be reduced by taking out the shortening?

    i use this mix instead- for pancakes and cakes (if have to go for a party or something i always volunteer to bring the cake out of selfish reasons)


    1 part whey proteinpowder

    1 part coconut flower

    0,5 parts ground flaxseed

    tsp bakingpowder


    add:

    1 egg

    melted butter


    if more density is needed add nut flours.
