The ketogenic diet is a minimal carbohydrate, high fat diet with many health and energy benefits. On it, the body burns fat for energy, not sugar. Success depends on a clear plan and/or guidance from a nutrition professional.
It is not a starvation diet; it requires a focus on nutrients beyond carbohydrates and sugars.
Hunger is the biggest challenge, especially if there are no ready to eat quick snacks. Most snacks and convenience foods are high in carbs and sugars and not meant for a low net carbs lifestyle.
They are low in net carbs and high in healthy fat – and satisfy your cravings without endangering your Ketosis.
Yes! We use pure foods and mostly organic ingredients. The abundance of healthy plant-based fat, feeds the brain and body.
Absolutely. Even when not following Keto protocol, healthy fats and low sugar, low net carbs intake is beneficial.

Non-GMO products are free from “genetically modified organisms,” plants or animals made in a lab by splicing DNA from different species using techniques of biotechnology (also called genetic engineering, or GE). Because there have been no long-term studies to verify the health impact of GMO foods, we choose to avoid them. Why take the risk?
Non-GMO Project Verified is a third-party initiative begun by retailers wanting greater transparency in labeling. The verification indicates the product adheres to best practices to avoid GMOs.
Erythritol is a natural sugar alcohol that is only partially absorbed and digested by the intestinal tract. It doesn’t raise blood sugar or insulin levels and is one of the preferred sweetener on a ketogenic diet. Our Erythritol is organic and NON-GMO.
Fiber moves through the body undigested and doesn’t affect blood sugar levels in the same way as carbohydrates. It also doesn’t spike insulin levels, meaning it can be safely enjoyed when following the ketogenic diet. Therefore, instead of counting total carbs in your diet, it’s best to focus on net carbs, which is calculated by subtracting the grams of fiber and erythritol from the total grams of carbohydrates.
Amaranth is a seed grain and therefore not a true grain. It is seen as keto by some and non-keto by others – our product is keto-certified by the Paleo Foundation with the full ingredient list. Amaranth flour is included as part of our antioxidant blend and is less than 0.3% of the bar. We are working to remove this ingredient from the product in the long run to cater to all preferences in our community.
