Bread is a staple food, important for providing nutrients for everyday functioning. Over the hundreds of years of bread making, consumers palates have adapted to a more refined bread, that lacks coarseness but is preferred for taste. Alpine Breads understand that taste is important, but as importantly is the delivery of ideal nutrients that bread has the capability of providing.
Alpine Breads Lower Carb Plain bread is unique in the fact that it provides the smooth textural sensation, but does not compromise on nutritional quality. Lower in carbohydrate means that this bread, which is 81% lower compared to the original Alpine Breads Wholemeal Bread, has a lower content but still delivers carbohydrate, which is important for cellular energy. Carbohydrate is our bodies fuel and a primary requirement for muscles, brain and other organs to function.
