Fall 2018

Loprofin Mix is an all‐purpose, low protein baking mix, great for cooking and home‐made pastries. A packet of yeast is provided in each box, making baking easy, especially bread. Nutricia also offers Loprofin Chocolate Cake Mix, great for any chocolate cake or muffin recipe. Tasty recipes, such as breads, naan, cupcakes, gingerbread and many more, can be found here

Loprofin Mix is a great substitute for Wel‐Plan Baking Mix, which is unfortunately no longer available. Several low protein expert chefs shared that they substitute Wel‐Plan Baking Mix with Loprofin Mix at a 1:1 ratio. For example, if a recipe asks for one cup of Wel‐Plan, you would use one cup of Loprofin Mix. We have also test‐baked a few low protein bread recipes from “Apples to Zucchini”, a cookbook by Virginia Schuett and Dorothy Corry, and confirmed that Wel‐Plan can be substituted at a 1:1 ratio with Loprofin Mix for many bread recipes. Check out these recipes with Loprofin Mix that work for making bread – with or without a bread machine! 

Many of you relied on Maddy’s Homestyle baking mixes as convenient, quick mixes. We developed recipes where you can use the Loprofin Mix to make the same baked goods. New Loprofin recipes, such as, sugar cookies, banana bread and blueberry muffins, to list just a few, can be found here

Look out for our future blogs on holiday cooking and baking, as well as making the low protein kitchen convenient, quick and tasty! 

Happy Baking!
