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
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!
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
if more density is needed add nut flours.
I have used the Bob's before - before I got glutenized LOL - it is OK - does it have soy in it ?? I think some of them do, cannot remember ....
Eva, that sounds good !!!
