Plant-based, keto certified and NON-GMO Costco Carbonaut Low Carb White & Multigrain Bread!
This review is for all my keto, low-carb people! Full disclosure: I’m a carb loving girl so I definitely can’t say I’m on a keto diet or even a low-carb diet. I do however respect those who are on the keto diet or that are trying to lower their carb intake so today I’m reviewing the Costco Carbonaut Low Carb Multigrain and White Keto Bread.
If you’re currently following the keto diet, add this product to your low-carb Costco shopping list!
This can be found with all the other bread at Costco and the item number for the multigrain bread is 1494429. The item number for the white bread is 1565961.
Alright so here’s my honest opinion about this product. It’s not that bad! Honestly it’s not as awful tasting as I expected it to be. It actually does resemble bread and tastes slightly similar. There are a few things I’ll point out though.
First of all the bread is very soft and spongey, even toasted. Basically I could roll this up and make a little ball with it so the texture is definitely different than regular bread. Also both my husband and I noticed it had a bitter aftertaste that lingers in your mouth. I’m not sure where that’s coming from but it was noticeable.
The seeds on the outside are great because it makes it seem more like normal bread and also adds some extra crunchy texture. I wouldn’t choose that over regular bread but if I were on a keto diet this would probably taste amazing. Especially turned into a grilled cheese or slathered with butter.
To try the white bread I toasted it and put a little butter on top. The first thing that I noticed is that the bread is quite light when you compare it to normal bread. It toasts nicely though and can almost pass for normal bread/toast.
There’s the same slight bitterness in the white bread that there is in the multigrain bread that I notice after chewing for a few seconds. The bitterness is less noticeable than it is for most keto bread products.
I paid $8.99 Canadian for both the bag of Costco Multigrain and White Carbonaut Low Carb, Keto Bread. You get two loaves in the bag, each loaf is 544 grams.
This isn’t that expensive considering how much some keto products cost!
I popped my bread into the freezer as soon as I brought it home and it freezes well. The best before date on the bread is about a week from the date I purchased the bread.
This can be toasted and makes a great bread option for those who are on keto or are following a low-carb diet.
Multigrain Carbonaut Bread – One slice is 80 calories, zero grams of sugar, three and a half grams of fat, six grams of fibre, 140 mg of sodium, six grams of protein, and eight grams of carbohydrates. That’s a lot of protein for one small slice of bread!
White Carbonaut Bread – One slice is 80 calories, zero grams of sugar, three and a half grams of fat, seven grams of fibre, 140 mg of sodium, seven grams of protein, and nine grams of carbohydrates.
This is plant-based, NON-GMO and certified keto! This is not gluten-free, it has wheat flour. I find most keto products are gluten-free but not this bread.
Taste: 7/10 for both the white and multigrain bread.
Give it a try!
This bread is probably amazing for those who are on a strict keto diet. I didn’t love the taste (the texture and bitter aftertaste are my main complaints) but that’s most likely because I eat regular bread all the time! I’d say if you’re really watching your carbs or are on keto, give this a try.
Have you tried these breads? What did you think of them?
