Added Fiber Bread

Posted on 02/02/2013 by lalaquen
Hello all. I'm afraid this may be a bit of a strange question, but I figure if anyone would know it would be you guys. My husband and I are about to embark on a diet/lifestyle change for weight loss and overall health reasons. It's one of those semi flexible programs with moderately strict rules about what types of things are acceptable to eat, but no restrictions (other than quantity) on what you eat as long as it fits the basic guidelines. One of the core concepts of the program is to eat lots of fiber, both for digestive health and as a way to minimize the excess fat that builds up in the body. So while we can have bread, it has to have a certain amount of fiber (1g per 10 calories, 100 or fewer calories per serving) in order to be acceptable, and at the moment the only thing I know of that works is one particular kind of store bought bread. But I don't particularly like store bought bread for a number of reasons, one being all the preservatives and additives, the consistency/texture of the crust, and also because I just enjoy baking and would prefer to do it myself.

So I was wondering - would it be possible to make extra fiber rich bread myself at home? Perhaps by adding one of those liquid-soluble fiber supplements to the water/milk when I mix it together and using whole wheat bread flour (if I can find it)? Or would that throw off the taste/texture too much? Would I need to alter the amounts of the other ingredients any? And if it would be possible, any ideas on how best to determine the amount of fiber in the end product?

Again, I know this is a weird question. But I appreciate any thoughts/insight you might have.
