Diet-friendly bread

It’s the new low-carb "super-bread" that is being compared to broccoli and could help you lose weight. We check out the Aussie bakery that has developed a new low-GI loaf that is amazing nutritionists.

With 7 percent carbohydrates, the same as broccoli, and 26 percent protein, the same as red meat, the recipe has been a work in progress for the past two years.

It was launched at the Ashmore Baker's Club store and is expected to be a hit among the carb-conscious.

The small loaf is quite dense and has a glycemic index of 17, also similar to that of broccoli.

The bread costs $7.50 a loaf and is currently only available in Ashmore, Robina and Brisbane, however, the company is working on an online ordering system so customers nationwide can purchase online.
