Low-carb baking ingredients can be somewhat difficult to find in brick-and-mortar grocery stores. That said, health food stores carry (or are often willing to order) some low-carb baking items. But without one locally, I have to order most of my low-carb ingredients on-line. I start by looking first at Netrition on-line (flat-rate $4.95 shipping, so I wait until I have a big order for best savings there) and then move on to other sources when they don’t carry a product I need. The following are my favorite suppliers, but you may Google and find a better source:
Google Search: Search the web for the product and buy direct from the maker
Health Food Stores Some products available there, or they will often special order for you
SPECIFIC ITEM SOURCE RECOMMENDATIONS (U.S.):
Oat fiber— (96% fiber and extremely low-carb but NOT 100% GLUTEN-FREE) Order 1# bags from Netrition; 4# bag from Honeyvillgrain (DO NOT confuse with oat flour or oat bran, both of those are very high carb!)
Oat flour—Bob’s Red Mill line of products is at some groceries and some Big Lots stores. Honeyvillegrain carries it reasonably priced. Or just grind your own rolled oats into finest flour possible in your food processor. (This is higher carb and should not be confused with oat fiber discussed above.)
Corn Bran—I haven’t found this anywhere but Honeyvillegrain
Corn Flavoring—Although a couple other companies have one, I order mine from (and can highly recommend the taste of) Select Flavors
Egg White Protein—Netrition carries it. Some grocers carry it in the flour/cake department in a small can.
Whey Protein Isolate—I order NOW brand unflavored wherever I can find a good deal on it on-line. I don’t use the flavored varieties hardly ever.
Einkorn Flour—Some Safeway stores, Teeters, and Trader Joe’s carry. Some other grocers may carry it also. I order this non-GMO, ancient form of wheat grain flour from Jovial Foods.com
Flax Meal—-My Walmart carries golden flax meal (mildest flavor and lightest color) in the cereal area, My Walmart carries the brown flax meal but shelves it in the flour area. Why they separate who knows?
Glucomannan Powder —Also called Konjac powder or Yam Bean Powder, is available at Netrition
Xanthan Gum—I order from Netrition, or get at Walmart supplements area or some health food stores carry it. This is the thickener I find easiest to use.
Boyajian Citrus Oils —order direct from Boyajian online or at Amazon
Coconut Cream—I use the UNsweetened variety (do not confuse with Creme of Coconut used in bar drinks, which is loaded with sugar! Read all ingredients on labels!. I buy it at my local Natural Grocers or order on-line at best source, often Wilderness Family Naturals.
Spices—I order hard-to-find spices on-line from Penzey’s, or buy from their stores direct if you have one near you
DaVinci Sugar Free Syrups: I order direct from Davinci.
Torani Sugar Free Syrups: I order direct from Torani.
Extra Virgin Coconut Oil-–I used to have to order from Tropical Traditions, Vitacost or Wilderness Family Naturals on-line. My Sam’s had it (54 oz. large jar) this week (5/4/14) for only $13.98 (and that size is usually $20 or more)!
Palm Shortening–I order from Tropical Traditions on-line
Parchment Paper–Any grocery store carries small boxes. Sam’s Clubs often have a larger box.
Psyllium Husk Powder–I use NOW brand at cheapest source on-line
