What Kind of Flour for Low Carb Diet?

What Kind of Flour for Low Carb Diet

Best Low Carb Flour for Baking and Cooking

The Low Carb diet is based on the idea that by reducing carbohydrates, you can lose weight. With less carbs and greater qualities of other nutrients, like fiber and protein, your body loses weight by entering a state of ketosis. This is when your body runs out of carbohydrates to burn and starts burning fat instead.

With a diet that tries to limit the amount of carbohydrates you eat, where does the Lee Household Flour Mill fit in? Not every Low Carb Diet is the same, but as long as you use small quantities of the flour, any flour is compatible with this diet and you can enjoy great tasting food. The goal isn’t to completely eliminate carbs from your diet, but rather to limit them to just what your body needs.

Low calorie types of flour include:

  • Chickpea flour
  • Rye flour
  • Corn flour
  • Triticale flour
  • Coconut flour

What to Eat on a Low Carb Diet

  • Meat
  • Fish and shellfish
  • Eggs
