Hi, Just discovered this site after desperately searching for help making a bread that does not use salt and prefer no fat.
I have been using an old recipe for Italian bread and using the nu-salt. Italian bread has no added oil.
I have been trying to come up with ways to make it using whole wheat, rye and adding flax seed.
It is ok but not exactly what we want yet.
I have been adding a small amount of sugar or honey (1 T max to about 4 cups of flour)
We are on a very low salt diet (a must for at least 6 months) and my DH is borderline diabetic so we are trying to cut out sugar anywhere we can. We do not like the artificial sweeteners so adding a small amount of honey or molasses is our only option.
Has anybody had good success making these adaptations?
We love the yeasty flavor and course bread and the tougher crust of Italian bread.
Any help would be appreciated.
