Although I love baking and cooking from scratch, there are times when we just need a little help.
Bisquick might be a household staple or a childhood favorite. However, if you have never tried it, it’s a simple baking mix that consists of flour, shortening, salt, and baking powder. Bisquick’s convenience does come at a price. It’s made from hydrogenated soybean oil, cottonseed oils, and trans fat. Trans fat can cause adverse health effects, such as increased LDL cholesterol (the worst kind) and decreased HDL cholesterol (the best).
Carbquik is a great substitute for flour and baking mixes. It tastes exactly like the real thing!
Carbquik baking mixture has 90% fewer carbohydrates than Bisquik, and it also contains no trans fats or hydrogenated oils. Carbquik’s main ingredient is CARBALOSE FLOUR.
What Is Carbalose Flour?
Carbalose is a substitute for real flour but without any extra carbs. It has 80% fewer carbs than regular flour.
Carbalose behaves like wheat flour in most recipes because it is mostly made from wheat, unlike other products. It does not contain non-fiber carbohydrates, such as starch and simple sugars, beta-glucans, Galatians, and pectin.
