Default Carbalose flour... That non-rising feeling

I tried Carbalose flour for the first time today. I made a small batch of buns. I followed the advice on the bag, doubled the yeast, reduced baking temp and extended time. I know this yeast was good.

It was the first time I've ever seen buns FALL while baking. They did double in size while rising, but then flattened out. They ended up like English muffins, and did taste good. And true to its word, I didn't spike after eating them!

Anyone have a good Carbalose bread or bun recipe?

I thought they quit producing it? Where did you get it?

I pretty much stick to making biscuits and using it as thickener in soups/gravies. It is the same flour used in CarbQuick.

That's interesting, the carbalose website says it's only available industrially, but I bought it here: Carbalose Lo-Carb White Flour | Low Carb Flour- The Low Carb Grocery Canada

I used Carbquik in the beginning, but switched in favor of almond flour & all the other nut/seed flours. I thought Carbquik had an odd flavor, altho' it did make nice biscuits. Have never used the carbalose flour alone.

Is it gluten free? Without the gluten, any dough has a hard time rising as there is little elastcity and stickiness to it.

Netrition still has it but they say it is out of stock . But when I pulled up the ingredient list I found it does have wheat in it, so it is not gluten free. On the nutrition facts they suggest doubling the yeast

Tova Carbalose Flour
