A premium low-carb sourdough loaf: Das Beste am Abend

A premium low-carb sourdough loaf, which seamlessly fits into a modern bakery workflow.


According to many dieticians, a low-carb diet is most effective when it focuses on reducing carbohydrate intake in the evening, giving the body more opportunity to burn fat overnight. ‘Das Beste am Abend’ (‘the best in the evening’) is a bread mix we developed for the German market: low in carbohydrates, high in proteins.

Premium taste and extended freshness
Das Beste am Abend, however, is not just about losing weight. It creates a premium wheat-rye sourdough loaf with excellent taste and texture, full of sunflower seeds, linseeds and soya grits and flavoured with sea salt. The mix also has a much higher water absorption than most other low-carb bread mixes, which keeps the finished product fresh for longer.

Ready-to-use
Finally, Das Beste am Abend is also a very convenient loaf to fit into a bakery’s workflow. While most sourdough mixes require the baker to prepare and rest a starter (which may take up to 20 hours), this mix is ready to use. In short: a convenient mix which bakers in all segments can use to enhance their product portfolio with a healthy, high-quality product.
