Yeast plus sugar
« on: March 15, 2020, 08:38:59 PM »
I recently read a recipe that called for yeast and honey. They claimed the yeast eats the sugar, and releases carbon dioxide gas, and there are no carbs left. I’m trying to verify if this is really true but not having a lot of luck.

Anyone heard of this, is it a scientific fact?

I asked a question like that about a year ago on a bread forum, I was told the yeast eats the sugar but the carbs are not removed.   

I would really like an answer myself.     It's when I was making a starter to add to low carb flour  for taste

I saw a few of your recipes with a starter, using yeast and flour. The flour has sugars the feed the yeast. This recipe is using only yeast and a small amount of sugar (honey) It rises crazy.

This is the statement from the web site:

RECIPE NOTES
*Sorry for the caps, but before you scream sugar remember that the yeast will feed on such sugar to emit carbon dioxide and make your bread rise, so it doesn%u2019t affect the carb count. And yes, this pure science.

Here is the full recipe, no wheat flour:

Your right mine was with flour so I'm sure it added more carbs.   I'll have to look at this one looks good

I would just like to verify the claim of carbs disappearing. That said, 2 teaspoons of Maple Syrup (not honey) for 8 buns is pretty minimal, so???

Yes, I would also because these look really good.

I know, I'm looking but I can't find anything on the subject so far
