Have your cake and eat it too with King Arthur Keto Wheat Flour Blend

If you’re following a keto diet, baking isn’t exactly easy. Sticking to the low-carb guidelines of the diet means that most traditional baked goods aren’t within reach. But does that mean keto baking is impossible?

Not anymore! King Arthur want everyone to enjoy baking (and eating), so King Arthur's Innovation Team recently went to work developing a keto-friendly, low-carb flour that would bake like regular all-purpose flour. It took a lot of time, research, testing, and baking to get there, but they were finally pleased to share a product that makes keto and low-carb baking easy: Keto Wheat Flour.

Keto Wheat Flour makes it easier than ever to enjoy low-carb versions of your favourite breads and yeasted baked treats! With just 4g of net carbs per serving, King Arthur Keto Wheat Flour is a staple for anyone following a ketogenic diet or reducing their carb intake. It's as easy as swapping it in, 1:1, for any recipe calling for all-purpose flour.


What is Keto Wheat Flour?

Keto Wheat Flour might sound like an oxymoron, but it actually exists! The key is that this flour is low in carbs and high in fiber; so while many people on a keto diet don’t eat wheat because of the high carb content, it’s entirely possible to eat wheat-based products as long as the net carb total remains low.

This flour also ranks low on the glycemic index, with an average value of 31. (For reference, foods with a glycemic index value less than 55 are considered to be low-glycemic index foods.) It also has a low glycemic load, at just 1 per serving. Similar to glycemic index values, glycemic load is useful for helping people identify which types and amounts of foods will produce relatively lower blood glucose responses after consumption. Glycemic load values of 10 or less are considered low.

With a traditional wheat taste, King Arthur's blend was formulated by bakers specifically for baking and shines in yeasted breads. It can also be used instead of breadcrumbs to coat meats or veggies — no need to give up your favourite dishes!

Made with wheat, King Arthur's unique blend offers a nut-free alternative to common keto flours like almond or coconut. Pair with keto friendly sugar alternative for an extra low-carb baked good with all the delicious flavour you’d expect with no aftertaste.

Here’s why we ❤️King Arthur Keto Wheat Flour:

  1. It has just 4g net carbs per serving.
  2. Its total net carbs are 80% less than that of all-purpose wheat flour.
  3. It can be used as a 1:1 replacement for wheat flour, making it incredibly easy to use for baking.
  4. It contains no almond or coconut flour.
  5. Because it’s wheat-based, it can emulate the flavours and textures of conventional wheat-flour baking.


Baking keto

Traditionally, keto baking relies on alternative flours like almond flour or coconut flour to keep recipes low-carb. And while they certainly enable some fantastic baking (have you tried Keto-Friendly Parmesan-Chive Muffins yet?), the only problem is that neither of these flours works well in yeast bread.

King Arthur believe wholeheartedly in the power of bread — keto or otherwise — so one of their primary goals in developing this product was creating a flour that would work well in yeast recipes. Because the Keto Wheat Flour formula contains wheat, and thus gluten, it yields a strong, elastic dough and bread with a soft, tender texture similar to what you’d expect from a traditional loaf.

And bonus: it also has that classic wheat-y smell that’s oh-so-familiar in bread.

The flour also performs well in non-yeast recipes like muffins, cookies, brownies, cakes, and more, making all kinds of keto-friendly baking possible.

How to use Keto Wheat Flour

Keto Wheat Flour can be swapped 1:1 for all-purpose flour in a recipe by volume or weight. Seriously!

You can sub the flour with no additional changes in all cases and get good results, but if you want to take your baking a step further, King Arthur have a few tips to maximize success:

  • For biscuits with a softer, more tender texture, increase the liquid called for in the recipe by 25%.

  • For yeast breads, increase the liquid in the dough by 2 tablespoons per 1 cup (120g) Keto Wheat Flour. You should only need about 5 minutes of gentle kneading and mixing — this flour yields a strong dough.

  • For cakes or high-sugar, high-fat quick breads, double the number of eggs in the recipe.

Keto Wheat Flour is particularly great for baked goods with a soft or moist texture, such as muffins, pancakes, or bread. On the other hand, it’s best not to use it for any baked good with a crisp or crunchy texture, as it won’t yield a final product that breaks with a snap. So recipes like crackers or shortbread aren’t the best way to put it to use — instead, stick to soft chocolate chip cookies or fudge brownies.

For you sourdough bakers out there, King Arthur are still testing to see if you can create a sourdough starter with this flour (stay tuned!). At the very least, however, Keto Wheat Flour can be used to feed a starter.
