Breadmakers Fear Loss of Dough
Dr. Atkins' low-carb legacy is drastically reducing bread sales in the U.S. and Britain, reports The Independent (via Drudge.) Rather than loafing, breadmakers are organizing a "crisis bread summit" in the United States.
Sheesh...yet another bread summit??? These things are just big photo ops and never solve anything. And there's always one baker who gets drunk and makes a heel of himself.
Since I can't think of another lousy bun, er, pun, I'll just point out that there are 4 brands of low-carb breads at my local grocery. All range from 4 to 7 carbs per slice, as opposed to the 15 to 17 carbs per slice in regular bread. And, best of all, they taste great.
A growing market segment is demanding low-carb bread and the breadmakers are rising to the challenge. So what's the crisis?
The breadmakers should just stay home and bake more bread. There's no knead for a bread summit.
