While you can sometimes buy low carb bread crumbs, you can make them yourself by using reduced carb bread. All you have to do is simply toast the reduced carb bread in your oven on a sheet of cookie paper. When it is well toasted, whizz it in your food mill. To store, keep in an airtight jar.
* Food labels can be misleading
Be sceptical of food labeling that proclaims 'low carb' - check the actual nutritional information on the back of the tin or package. A good number of are only a little decreased and in some cases still higher than a competitors normal brand. Also, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' does not always mean 'low carb' - often the carbs are identically the same.
