Cloud bread is very popular on the slimming world diet for people who want to avoid spending their syns on normal bread.
Cloud bread is syn free due to its recipe consisting mostly of whipped egg whites and quark which are both syn free on the slimming world plan, this is then baked and resembles bread texture, just without the syns and very little carbs.
In our small guide below, we will discuss how to make cloud bread plus whether or not it's worth making compared to standard bread.
First of all, before we get into how to make this wonderful syn free bread, let's discuss first what it is. Cloud bread was created by people a couple of years back who wanted to avoid heavily carbohydrate bread according to their diet, this also worked out nicely for slimming world people as they could avoid syns in their bread due to it being made with SYN FREE ingredients.
Cloud bread has around half the calories of normal bread and has a good amount of protein due to egg whites being one of the main ingredients, the sweetener also makes it taste much more like normal bread.
Cloud bread is not the easiest of recipes to make, the ingredients are very simple, but whipping the egg whites is what takes most of the time and effort.
We've listed the recipe for making your own syn free cloud bread below.
So if you can get syn free bread and make it right at home, you might be wondering why anyone would waste their syns on high-carb normal bread, well, this is because cloud bread does not taste the best and can have a slightly chewy texture.
Cloud bread although low in syns, is not filling or satisfying and take a fair amount of time to make for a small piece of bread. In comparison to normal bread where you can even use wholemeal as your healthy extra B, we would not recommend it daily.
To conclude, if you really want to save some syns or maybe you have used your whole syn allowance for the day and need bread for a meal, making your own syn free cloud bread could be a great option. But for replacing bread daily, we would not recommend it and would suggest using wholemeal bread as your HeXB instead to reduce syns, this is much more nutritional and satisfying.
