Bakers Delight Lo-Fo Bread


Bakers delight Lo-Fo bread and sourdough

In mid 2017 Bakers Delight introduced the Lo-Fo loaf. The Lo-Fo loaf was created for people with sensitive tummies, or in other words people with IBS who have an intolerance to fructans. The Lo-Fo loaf is made with wheat starch, gluten and some wholegrains but it is at a level that was tested as low FODMAP by Fodmap Friendly at 2 slices. Please note that this loaf is not gluten free, so is not suitable for those with coeliac disease.

Before the Lo-Fo bread, I hadn't found a suitable bread that looked, felt and tasted like regular bread. A lot of the breads that are gluten free have the consistency of a thick piece of wet cardboard. I found that even with toasting a lot of them were still damp. I couldn't stand it and was finding that I wasn't eating bread anymore (something that made me seriously sad as I LOVE bread). I had come across sourdough bread, that as long as it was left to proof for 2-24hours is low FODMAP. The Bakers Delight sourdough bread is low FODMAP at 2 slices. So this is a great option, I love using sourdough for brusketta, eggs on toast or toasted sandwiches.


Taste: similar taste to wholemeal bread
Texture: similar to multigrain as it has a few little kibbley bits
Visually: it looks just like a regular loaf of wholemeal multigrain bread
