A few years ago, when I started baking keto bread for my kids
I faced the biggest disappointment ever, they didn't like it. They didn't like the texture of keto bread and they particularly didn’t like the seeds. Seeds are incredibly healthy, full of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. They can even help to reduce blood sugar, cholesterol and blood pressure.
One way or another, we were adding seeds to our keto bread.
I tried to hide the seeds in our keto bread by blending them into flours. The kids started eating our keto bread after this.
The seeds are in our keto bread.
I didn’t know this at the time but grinding the seed flours, in particular, flax seeds, makes the nutrients easier for our body to absorb. Go figure! Also, when you’re toasting our keto bread, seeds don’t fall down the toaster and get stuck at the bottom. Not a big deal for you… ever clean a toaster? 😊
Interestingly, whole flax seeds can pass through our body without being broken down at all and should really be ground or pressed into an oil before consuming. Guess my kids were onto something when they helped to design our keto bread.
Skyebird Foods keto bread was designed right here in New Zealand for kids to eat, enjoy and love. Purchase our family's keto bread loaves here.
Keen to learn more about the bioavailability of ground flax seeds and why we've added them to our keto bread, check these links out:

Thinking of starting keto? Then you’ve come to the right place! A ketogenic diet is a low-carb, high-fat and moderate-protein diet that alters the body’s metabolism to use fat as the preferred fuel, rather than sugars.
