  • 250g Loprofin Mix (extra for dusting and shaping the bread)
  • 25g cold hard white fat cut into cubes
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 200mls Sno-Pro
  • 10g psyllium husk
  • 7g packet of yeast


  1. Mix the psyllium husk with the Sno-Pro and allow to thicken for 10 minutes.
  2. Rub the hard white fat into the Loprofin Mix so it looks like breadcrumbs.
  3. Add the sugar, salt, yeast, and pour in the Sno-Pro mixture and mix until you have a soft dough. Cover and leave in a warm place until the dough doubles in size.
  4. Tip the dough onto a work surface dusted with a little Loprofin Mix. Knead and shape the dough into a fat sausage shape.
  5. Place into an oiled 2lb loaf tin. Cover and leave in a warm place until the dough has doubled in size.
  6. Bake 170°C for 30-40 minutes until the top is golden.
  7. To test if it’s baked, when you tap the bottom of the loaf it should sound hollow.
  8. Remove from the tin and cool on a wire rack.
