On a mission to deliver consumers low-carb bread and bakery products with superior taste and texture, Carbonaut is now the #1 selling Keto-Certified bread brand in the U.S. Natural space and is the #1 selling Keto-Certified bread brand in Canada. Spurred by consumer demand the brand has rapidly expanded since its launch just one year ago, introducing 13 new SKUs, including its original White and Seeded Loaves in both Original and Gluten-Free varieties, Hamburger and Hot Dog Buns and now, its latest innovations, Gluten-Free Bagels and Gluten-Free Pizza Crust.
Carbonaut entered the low/no-carb category as consumers are increasingly seeking more low-carb options, as evidenced by the growing popularity of the keto diet. In fact, according to Mintel, 37% of consumers currently consume food and drinks with low/no-carb claims.
“We’re thrilled to continue to build our product offerings to give those living the low-carb lifestyle the freedom to enjoy real bakery-fresh bread and bakery products again,” says Carbonaut President and Co-Founder Danny Houghton. “But it’s also important to us that Carbonaut deliver more than just low-carb – not only have we perfected an amazing taste and texture, but we’ve done it using 100% plant-based, nutritious ingredients. It’s truly low-carb bread without compromise, and we’re excited that the brand has resonated so well with consumers.”
