  • Special Notice: Click here.—Finally proof that what we've been writing and stating in our cookbooks concening salt substitutes is correct. They even went a step further and said that foods marketed as "low sodium" are also overloaded with salt substitutes, such as the Heinz no salt addded Kethcup, which uses a product called "Also Salt." The bottomline is: Do not use salt substitutes. They could prove to be as deadly as salt itself.

  • You can alter each of our bread recipes by making them without sugar. Just add 1/2 teaspoon yeast and each bread recipe should have one to two tablespoons Malted Barley Flour (a natural sweetener). You may also sweeten by using Granulated Splenda. We've not had success in our breadmaking with Stevia or Pyure (a Stevia product) as a sweetener. If you prefer to not use a sugar substitute, that works too. None are required nor do they affect yeast.
