Lo-Dough vs Standard Pastry

Lo-Dough bases work wonders for your pizzas, wraps, as a flour replacement for baking, but did you know you can also use it as a fantastic and versatile pastry alternative? Although the bases don’t quite share the same properties as standard filo pastry, it perfectly slots into any low carb diet. You can still create all of your favourite recipes while reducing carbs by up to 90% and without compromising on flavour.

Our pecan pie is a triumph, and a low carbers dream! Using Lo-Dough as a pastry replacement and replacing the sugars and syrups with erythritol sweetener (a brilliant sweetener for use in low-sugar baking and cooking), we have reduced the carb impact down to just what is contained within the nuts - little over 2g carbs per slice.

Tangy lemon custard sits inside a Lo-Dough case and is topped with pillow-soft meringue. Traditionally, this is an extremely high-sugar dessert, but by swapping the pastry out for Lo-Dough and the sugar out for sweetener (we use erythritol), you can reduce the sugar down to next to nothing and with that, the calories drop down too!
