Ultra Low Carb Flour Anyone tried?

Hi,

Has anyone tried ultra low carb flour? It's claimed to have carb of 5 Gms./20 gms. of Chapati!.

Ingredients -

Flax Seed Meal

Almond Meal

Soybeans

Isolated Wheat Protein

Psyllium Husk

Almond Meal

Resistant Starch

Chicory Root Extract

Sesame Seeds

FOS

Anti Caking Agent [INS 551]

Added Vitamins & Minerals (B Complex, Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Vitamin D, Magnesium, Calcium, Iron)

Price is surely too high!

Just for the sake of trial, I ordered 500 gms packet and had it first time during breakfast today. 1 Chapati with 2 half fried eggs cooked in virgin coconut oil and my PPBS was 106. Also, I felt satisfied with one chapati (Normally, I find it difficult with 1 made from regular Flour) This is the lowest PPBS I had recently. The avg PPBS I have with 2 regular flour chapati is around 150.

I will monitor it for sometime.

Experts - Any thoughts on ingredients?

That isn't ultra low carb; 5g per 20g is 25g carbohydrate per100g chapatti which is quite carb dense still.

Regular flour has what carb? Surprisingly, my PPBS was good!!

Normal chapati weighs roughly 40 gm and 20-22 gm carbs.

On result alone, it sounds very good. With the ingredients, i guess it must be very low GI flour. Though it has 25% carb, it is energy-dense and you do not need to eat same quantity as ordinary wheat flour. You have experienced that one chapati of this flour was enough for you. Your low after-meal blood sugar number is consistent with consumption of low carb( just 5 gm assuming recommended quantity for one chapati, other items have no carb at all).

Did you monitor your blood sugar before the meal? Did you have any medication?

Consistency have to be monitored. Chapati is not good on taste. I mostly have low GI veg or Dal during lunch and dinner and eggs during b/f.

I don't monitor before meals BG levels mostly!

I am on metformin 850Mg Sr(once) , Rozaval 20 and Concor5 on medicines!

I fully agree with you that such designer products meet the requirements but are not sustainable due to their taste. I firmly believe you could benefit immensely by following a low carb diet and some exercise. Your breakfast menu Eggs/Omelette is very good. You can add some cheese if you wish. Dal though healthy has 60% carb so not an excellent choice. You are a non-vegetarian and therefore it should be rather easy to follow my M.E.A.L plan. Consider following that for three to four weeks and see the results. Following is the link:

You have to monitor your blood sugar regularly while following this diet. You may have to reduce the medicine doses in order to avoid hypo. Your food will become medicine or some part of. With time you may be able to get rid of all medications or reduce it to minimum. You should consult you Doctor also while making a change in the diet.

Let me know if you have any queries.

You said that you have eaten 1 chapati made from this flour, eat 1 more chapati like your regular diet and then compare the results.

I have 4 PPBS readings now with it .... 106, 150, 157, 117! At 150,157 I had some fruits also with the meal. While at 106, 117... Only eggs with VCO.

Regarding having meals with 2 chapattis as my regular diet, I did not feel like having another chapati ( Completely filled and satisfied)

Eggs won't rise your sugar fast because 50-60% protein converted into carbs in about 5-6 hours and eggs contain no carbs.

Therefore eat same type of food with same quantity. Note down your blood sugar before and after the meal and then check the difference. If there's not any notable difference then you're not eating any type of magic food.
