What is 0 Carb Bread?

0 carb bread is a type of bread specifically formulated to have zero net carbohydrates. I’ll take it one step further and say that 0 carb bread should have no total carbs either. Well, at least a negligible amount given that eggs have a smidgen of carbs.

0 carb bread, otherwise known as carnivore bread, is animal-based and fully carnivore-compliant. It is made from beef, eggs, butter and pork rinds. If you are scratching your head wondering how this could taste, or act, like bread you are in for a pleasant surprise.

Bake for 80-90 minutes, or until crispy and browned on the outside and cooked through completely. Drain off the excess grease, and allow the loaf to cool to room temperature before slicing to serve.

Can I Toast Carnivore Bread?

Yes, you can toast 0 carb bread! However, it’s important to note that it might toast differently than regular bread. Due to its unique composition, this bread may brown not as fast or require a different setting on your toaster.

It’s a good idea to keep an eye on it the first few times you toast it to find the perfect setting for your preferences.

Can You Eat Bread on a Low Carb Diet?

Traditionally, bread is off the table on a low carb diet due to its high carbohydrate content. However, 0 carb bread changes the game. It allows those following a low carb, keto or canivore diet to enjoy bread without the usual carb count.

How to Store 0 Carb Bread

Storing this carnivore bread is a bit different from storing traditional bread due to its unique ingredients and lack of preservatives. It should be stored in the refrigerator to extend its shelf life. I wrap it in parchment paper or keep it in an airtight container.

You can also freeze the bread, but make sure it is completely cooled first.
