    Food tech startup becomes first ever “reduced carb” certified company

    Food tech startup becomes first ever “reduced carb” certified company with Sugarwise

    A Rochdale food tech startup Lo-Dough has become the first ever company to be awarded an official “reduced carb” certification by Sugarwise.

    The new company, which invented a unique low carb bread alternative, was handed the official certification after tests showed that their product was outstandingly low in carbohydrates compared to any possible competitors. The announcement by Sugarwise means that Lo-Dough is not only recognised officially as a “reduced carb” innovation, but is paving the way for a breakthrough in the dietary, fitness and slimming markets.

    Sugarwise is the international certification authority for sugar claims on food and drink, with more than 300 products certified across Europe, Australia, China and the Middle East. Founder and director Rend Platings, who issued Lo-Dough with the certificate this week, claims that Lo-Dough deserved “as much recognition as possible” for it’s unique and healthy food product.

    She added: “Lo-Dough is an outstanding startup company which has produced a low carb food product like no other. At around three times less carbs than their closest competitors, it is possible to marry Lo-Dough with optimal nutrition, as well as staying extremely low in carbs and sugars. Lo-Dough not only meets the criteria set by Sugarwise, but they do so by a large margin.

    It's a step. Low carb may become more acceptable once they can make it profitable. Rib-eye and broccoli today, with a couple of thickly buttered oatcakes (I have President again) and probably some salmon and the last of the samphire shortly. Not much profit for the "food" manufacturers there.

    There is a growing market for low carb foods of course the proof of the pudding is in the eating it's got to be palatable or it won't take off 

    Iv'e been having Paleo foods granola for a while now it's expensive but makes for an easy and quick breakfast just add almond milk and a good slug of double cream

    It's a line they have to draw between palatability and cheap ingredients. Of course the cheapest ingredients are grains and industrial lubricants, oh I mean "heart healthy" vegetable oils, which aren't.

    Meanwhile, how to make nuts high carb

    confession - I eat small quantities of these when they are on discount at only £1 per bag. Red labelled for the fats but ignore the 38g carbs per 100g
