The best low carb bread in the UK? We like to think so... and so do our amazing customers!
The UK bread manufacturer and retailer, Heylo, has brought to market many keto bread products that have become staples for many individuals following a ketogenic diet, aiming to maintain low carbohydrate intake while reaping the benefits of sustained energy and weight management. Our special bread substitutes traditional flour with low-carb alternatives like ground flaxseed, sunflower seeds and many other healthier alternatives than pure wheat flour. Its popularity stems from its ability to satisfy carb cravings while adhering to the strict carb limitations of the keto diet.
At its core, the ketogenic diet focuses on reducing carbohydrate intake to induce a metabolic state called ketosis. In this state, the body primarily burns fats for fuel instead of carbohydrates, leading to enhanced fat burning and potential weight loss. However, adhering to such a diet often means bidding farewell to conventional bread - a high-carb favourite. This is where Heylo's keto bread steps in as a lifesaver, offering a solution that aligns with the dietary requirements of ketosis.
Keto bread recipes vary, but they typically contain a combination of low-carb flours, eggs, healthy fats (like butter or coconut oil), and sometimes baking agents like baking powder or xanthan gum for texture. The absence or minimal use of high-carb ingredients like wheat flour and sugar allows individuals on a ketogenic diet to enjoy the satisfaction of bread without compromising their nutritional goals.
Heylo differs here. We have sought to create a keto-friendly bread range that tastes just like its regular carb-filled cousins. Our breads don't contain egg, or coconut oil or even especially high-levels of fat (don't worry - you can add your own keto friendly fats).
The advantages of Heylo's low carb bread range
One significant advantage of Heylo's bread range is its impact on blood sugar levels. Traditional bread made from refined wheat flour can cause rapid spikes in blood sugar due to its high carbohydrate content. Conversely, our bread, with its lower carb profilet, tends to have a more moderate effect on blood sugar levels, helping to maintain a steadier energy supply throughout the day.
Moreover, the high fibre and protein content in Heylo's bread can contribute to a feeling of satiety, potentially reducing overall calorie intake by curbing hunger pangs and cravings.
Our amazing keto white bread - Heylo Lighter White - is a great example here. A one-of-a-kind low-carb white bread product that tastes, smells and feels like white bread, but is just 1g of carbs per slice.
Maintainable keto and low carb dieting
For individuals following a ketogenic lifestyle, incorporating bread allows for more variety in meal options. It can be sliced and used for sandwiches, toasted for breakfast, or even transformed into croutons for salads. This versatility makes it easier to stick to the diet by offering familiar meal options that would otherwise be off-limits due to their high carb content.
Why choose Heylo as your UK keto bread retailer?
Heylo serves as a valuable tool for individuals on a ketogenic diet, offering a way to enjoy the comfort and convenience of bread without compromising their dietary goals. Its low-carb, high-fibre, high-protein composition aligns with the principles of the ketogenic diet, providing a solution for those seeking to maintain ketosis while relishing the pleasure of bread-based indulgences.
Ultimately, if you can enjoy your diet or lifestyle, you can maintain it.
