Kalyn’s Kitchen Picks: Joseph’s Bakery Low-Carb Flax, Oat Bran, and Whole Wheat Pitas
Joseph’s Low-Carb Flax, Oat Bran, and Whole Wheat Pitas are something I’ve loved for years! They aren’t sold in Utah, so I buy them in a package of three from Amazon.com and store in the freezer.
In August of 2005 I visited Rhode Island, and while I was there I discovered a low-carb pita bread that was so full of healthy ingredients and delicious that I wrote on my relatively-new food blog about Joseph’s Bakery Oat Bran and Whole Wheat Flour Pita Bread. I brought some of the pita bread and tortillas home with me from that trip, but I never could find them anywhere in Utah.
I might have forgotten about it completely, except that fans of the pita bread kept leaving comments on that post asking where they could get the Joseph’s Bakery products. I checked regularly, but for years there was nowhere to order them online. But obviously that’s not the end of the story, or I wouldn’t be writing about it again now.
Flash forward 2+ years and a lot of food blogging later and one of my best food blogging friends was the lovely Lydia from The Perfect Pantry. Lydia lived in Rhode Island, and she generously offered to send me some of my favorite low-carb pita bread. Meanwhile, someone left a comment letting me know the Joseph’s Bakery products are soon going to be available online. When I heard that (and after Lydia helped me remember how great they were) I decided it was time to make the Joseph’s Bakery Low-Carb Flax, Oat Bran, and Whole Wheat Pitas an official Kalyn’s Kitchen Pick.
And then a few years later I was so excited to find you could buy Joseph’s Low-Carb Flax, Oat Bran, and Whole Wheat Pitas at Amazon.com. (Full disclosure: Kalyn’s Kitchen does earn a few cents on the dollar if you follow that link and buy them at Amazon.) Since then I’ve been buying the three-pack from Amazon every couple of months and keeping them in the freezer.
Joseph’s Bakery Low-Carb Flax, Oat Bran, and Whole Wheat Pitas are delicious, nutritious, high in protein and fiber, low in fat, and low in carbs. (The regular size pita has 9 carbs, but 4 grams of fiber and 0 sugars for only 5 net carbs.) They’re perfect anyone following a low-carb or low-glycemic eating plan, although obviously this product is not gluten-free. I love these when I just need some pita bread, and if you can’t find them where you live, these are definitely worth ordering online.

About Kalyn’s Kitchen Picks:
I purchased Joseph’s Bakery Low-Carb Flax, Oat Bran, and Whole Wheat Pitas myself and although Joseph once left a comment on the blog, this company has no idea that I’m writing about their product. All items featured as Kalyn’s Kitchen Picks are things I would happily buy over and over, and because I want readers to know that my opinions are completely unbiased, I don’t accept review products from the many companies who offer to send them to me.
