Keto/low-carb flour blend
Ardent Mills has launched a Keto Certified Net Carb Flour Blend, the industry’s first major net carb flour blend for keto and low-net-carb baked applications. The innovative formulation can be used as a replacement for conventional flour without compromising taste, texture, or functionality. The Net Carb Flour Blend is nut-free and contains gluten, which allows customers to run on their current equipment without any changes. It is available in white (all-purpose) and specialized flour blends for a broad range of bread and baked-good applications. Recently keto certified by the Paleo Foundation, the blend is also non-GMO, dairy-free, vegan, has no-added sugar, and is a great source of fiber. 800-851-9618
