low carb brown bread rolls

Why low carb bread costs more than its regular counterpart

Understanding the value of Heylo's low carb range of breads. 

Heylo's bread products are all low carb, high fibre and high protein. Made using a unique blend of ingredients, they have been created to satisfy those looking for a healthy and maintainable diet/lifestyle while still enjoying delicious, no-compromise-on-taste food.

We are often asked why we cost more than standard products found in supermarkets. Well, like many low carb / high protein foods, ours are certainly more expensive than regular products. Low-carb products often require specialist ingredients or different baking and manufacturing processes, which can contribute to higher production costs. Ingredients like our specialist flours, or alternative sweeteners are much more expensive than traditional flour or sugar. Additionally, the general demand for low-carb items is lower, leading to economies of scale that favour traditional products, which can also impact the pricing of low-carb options like Heylo.

As you can see from the short list above, what is and isn’t seen as value for money is all about perception. Most of these products are made with relatively cheap ingredients and via largely traditional manufacturing/production processes, yet are charging a huge premium for their consumption. It is worth noting that aside from the protein bar, none of the above products offer much in the way of specific health benefits; they are just accepted at the price point they are offered. 

Heylo bread is different. It is both incredibly low in carbs AND comes with its own incredible additional health benefits. More importantly, unlike many low-carb and healthier products, has been created with taste at the very forefront.
