Carbalose?

Any of you ever try this? I'm really not a huge fan of the flax meal and was thinking for the occasional pancake this might work.

I played around with it when it first came out but then lost interest. I had a huge stash of it in my pantry and just threw it out recently because it wasn't being used. It worked OK but I'm just not all that interested in breads and it does have a slightly odd taste sometimes.

Here's the link to the big thread at Low Carb Friends where those of us who were experimenting with Carbalose posted our recipes and results.

Wow thanks for that link! I think it is worth a try. I'm not missing the bread too much, but every now and then I'm thinking I could go for something "carby" for breakfast or afternoon snack.

I presume since it's been around for a while if the "net carbs" were iffy there would be some discussion of that.

I make "drop biscuits" with it occasionally. I'll make a batch of a dozen or so then freeze them. Pop one in the microwave to have with breakfast. Linda is right, however, it has a distinctly taste to it (actually, I use CarbQuick, which is made from carbalose).

I've heard that they've improved it a bit since the last time I bought it. They supposedly reduced the amount of salt in it. Carbquik and Carbalose flour are both quite salty and you need to adjust your recipes to account for that. Most of the time I just omitted any added salt that a recipe called for and I made a point of using unsalted butter too.

As far as the net carbs being "iffy", I don't recall hearing that too many people had issues with it if they didn't go crazy with it. Personally, I have trouble with the fiber content. I get pretty bloated when I eat things made with Carbquik or Carbalose. I don't remember if I ever gained after eating things that I'd made but it's probably been at least a couple years since I have done so.

I use it as an occasional treat, but not as a regular thing.
