all-purpose flour is plain flour, you may also see unbleached, in the UK all flour is unbleached, I'm not sure about the States.

I rarely use flour but when I do, I use all purpose flour. I basically use it if I want to make gravy. Since I only eat a little of it, I don't worry about the carbs because the rest of the meal will balance out.

What you may want to do to find some lower carb ideas is find ways to add almond flour to your recipes. You have to add more leavening, but it will cut the carbs.

All purpose flour is plain flour. That means you have to add baking soda, baking powder, salt to it when you bake; otherwise your cakes, breads, etc., will not rise when you bake. Hope this helps.
