There are some low carb posts here but you have to remember that most breads are high carb and bakers here generally work from that premise. I have worked with a few people on developing their low carb products but it is a matter of a lot of experimentation. This is one such thread and is a bit long- the original poster had a few issues to work through. These buns used chemical leavener. Yeast needs carbohydrates so I'm not sure how to make a yeasted product without food for the yeast.

Here is another poster who linked to a keto blog with a low carb bread. This one used commercial yeast. If commercial yeast can be used, there is good likelihood that a starter can be used.

Good luck. It will be interesting to follow your progress on this project.
