Dr. Rosedale,
In your book you recommend Julian Bakery's Manna from Heaven, unfortunately they no longer care it. What would you recommend in its place?

    Looking forward to the answer to this one. What is an acceptable replacement? There are no less the 10 recipes in the Rosedale diet book that use Manna from Heaven bread. At least tell us some characteristics of bread we need to look for. Is the "Paleo" bread from Julian Bakery a good substitute? Roman Meal? Wonder Bread? Twinkes? Something?....

    You might find a bread recipe and substitute with ingredients like below - you will probably need to get a little practice in or have someone with a bread maker do it for you.

    I personally haven't eaten any bread since June 2012, before then I would scarf down at least a loaf a day by myself. I find doing without it in any form does no harm.

    Blanched Almond Flour

    Lots of protein, so beware and easy on the servings/slices - see image below

    Substitute for wheat flour in cakes, breads, cookies, muffins and more.

    Arrowroot Starch/Flour

    Arrowroot is made from the dried root of a tropical plant. It is a thickening agent that may be used in place of cornstarch. As a thickener, it can be used for soups, sauces and puddings. It has no flavor of its own and is the easiest starch to digest. Arrowroot is best used at the end of your cooking just before boiling, as continued heating will cause it to lose its thickening ability. It is also an excellent ingredient for gluten-free baking or breading.

    xylitol sweetener

    Is there a commercially available substitute that is recommended?

    Hi Rae Ann

    I do not know of any personally - I haven't seen any mentioned on this website either.

    Perhaps Fiona or Dr. Ron may know.

    I am looking for a replacement too. I think a good recipe should be found to make on our own.

    I have found a recipe that might be acceptable but I am not sure.

    10 tbs of almond flour (about 150 gr I think)
    500 ml of egg whites
    300 gr of Total Fage 0%
    10 tsp of baking powder

    What do you think?

    It appears that there aren't any suitable bread recipes at this time - until there is you could use the recipes that do not use bread.

    Julian Bakery's Manna from Heaven is only a recommendation not a necessity ..

    Wishing you the best of health ........

    Thanks Ken! Actually, I found that the protein count in each slice was like wasting my protein allowance for the day.

    may i recommend the ketogenic flax bread Wooo describes here: -- it's very low-carb and comparatively high-fiber, and it's our favorite recipe when we need toast for any dish.

    yes I was looking for it as well and found at Sprouts a bread that is low carb, hi fiber and work so dont have the name in front of me but has a sticker saying "diabetes" friendly or something like that. I think in Dr Rosedale's book he mentions it being low carb hi fiber and w/ protein so I bought this replacement. I like it but I was not a big bread person so going without is no big deal. Good luck on your journeys.
