When we set out to create the perfect Keto Snack, our aim was to develop a bar that was truly low in net carbs, free from sugar and high in good fat! One that didn't kick you out of ketosis!

Net (digestible) carbs are broken down into individual sugar units and absorbed into your bloodstream. However, your body processes sugar alcohols differently than digestible carbs and they have little impact on blood sugar.
The sugar alcohols we use in KetoKeto have little impact on blood sugar and insulin. This is why our net impact carbs are so low and perfect for Keto!
Our Keto Bars are made from only natural ingredients and have been developed to be purposely high in fat, low in carbohydrate and low protein. This is not just a protein bar, claiming keto. We worked hard to develop a bar that was natural, vegan and one that wouldn't kick you out of ketosis!
Yes we have noticed that many protein bars have tried to jump on the keto train. Unfortunately many people experience bad results from them as they are full of artificial sugars which have an adverse effect on blood insulin; and as a result kick them out of ketosis. Our bars are low in net carbs but also low in carbohydrate as a whole and we feel it will leave you feeling more satisfied than your average protein bar!
We recognised that there was a need for a vegan Keto bar out there in the big wide world. Not only for those who are vegan, but also for non-vegans alike. Sometimes it's nice to have a break from all the heavy animal product foods, especially when on a keto diet and have something a little more.. well plant-based!
Many health bars on the market are bound tight with dry fruit or sugary syrups; all things not ideal for keto. In fact some bars use these syrups as a binding agent, to avoid declaring them in their nutrition. We refused to do this. We wanted our bars to be keto first, so we only use nuts and seeds to bind our product together. Yes they are crumbly, but they taste great and will keep you keto!
The big question! Glad you asked. Whilst we cannot guarantee it won't kick you out of ketosis, we can certainly say strongly from all our tests that there is a very high chance it won't!. Everybody's body is different and it all depends when you eat these bars, at what time of day and what with? We recommend trying and measuring. Because they are a good filling snack, you may also want to split them in half over the day. But in a nutshell, we are confident it won't kick you out of ketosis.
As of July 2020 we will be improving our recipe even further. Currently we use xylitol as our sweetener of choice. It has little impact on blood insulin and blood sugar levels and will help you stay in Keto. From July 2020 we have reduced the amount of xylitol we use and are now using erythritol. Research shows erythritol has no impact on blood sugar levels and many now claim it to be the best sweetener to use on a keto diet.
