    The present invention relates to a low carbohydrate bakery item that does not contain any traditional flour, such as white or wheat flour. Instead, the bakery product has other ingredients that allow the bakery product to have similar characteristics, including taste and texture, as a traditional bakery item. The dough created for the bakery products has a consistency that allows it to be processed using traditional commercial bakery equipment, which typically cannot be used with other low carbohydrate bakery products because of the toughness of the dough.

    A press assembly for forming a food product where the press assembly includes a cutting dye including a body that extends from a proximal end to a distal end. The proximal end has an irregular shape and a sharp edge configured to cut the food product into the irregular shape. The body has an interior surface surrounding an interior space. The press assembly further includes a pressure plate arranged within the interior space. The pressure plate includes a pressing surface including a first zone and a second zone surrounding and extending from the first zone at a taper angle such that an outer end of the second zone is recessed from an inner end adjacent the first zone. The cutting dye and the pressure plate cooperate to press and cut the food product. The food product is also described.
