I also love baking – and I have baked my own bread for years, I don’t think store bought bread tastes any good! I have recently changed my diet to follow Fast Tract (because of IBS), but I get a craving for bread sometimes. My basic bread recipe is this:
1/2 liter of cold water from the tap
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dry yeast
600 g ordinary wheat flour
Mix it all together and let it rise in the fridge overnight or longer. Using 2 spoons (dough is sticky), put 12 buns on oven plate covered with baking paper, bake at 200C for 20-22 minutes.
I cut each of the 12 buns in 4 pieces and froze them.
My wheat flour has 71 g carbohydrates and 4,1 g fiber per 100 g, so using a GI of 70 for white bread (from the book), I find that my 1/4 bun has a FP = 3.2. That seems OK to incorporate in the diet, not every day maybe, but when the craving pops up…
But I would love to hear from others here if the calculation looks correct
