Scientists are finding that high-carbohydrate diets lead to chronic inflammation and chronic inflammation contributes to and may well be the root cause of heart disease, many cancers, diabetes, Alzheimers and Parkinson’s. What is needed is a truly delicious alternative line of bakery products for the growing unmet demand for low-carbohydrate, high-protein, high-fiber, processed sugar-free breads, muffins and cookies. Our items are naturally gluten-free, heart-healthy and diabetic-friendly.
Because Blooming Lotus Bakery uses nut flours and seed flours, our products have two to four times the protein and fiber content of most gluten-free and grain-filled items currently on the market. Instead of cane sugar products (often labeled organic dehydrated cane juice or Sucanat) or agave nectar, we use fruit such as bananas and unsweetened applesauce. We also use coconut palm sugar, which is a natural sweetener that has half of the glycemic index of cane sugar. In select items, we use small amounts of pure organic maple syrup.
