What Ingredients Are Used to Make Our Keto Products?
At the No Sugar Company, we have gone to great efforts to create delicious snacks with your health as our first priority. We understand there’s a need for keto-friendly on the go snacks that are packed full of high-quality ingredients to also benefit your health and wellbeing. While following a no sugar, keto diet snacks can support numerous goals of reducing sugar intake to losing weight, our products help look after your health too. In turn this will help you feel good from the inside out and support you to achieve your goals.
Eating foods rich in nutrients and low in carbs can reduce blood sugar levels, lower blood pressure, increase levels of 'Good' HDL cholesterol, among many other benefits too.
What Can You Eat on a Keto Diet?
So what can be eaten on a keto diet? Think meats and seafood as good sources of protein, as well as eggs and healthy fats, vegetables, nuts, beverages, spices and sweeteners. On a low carb diet, there are actually plenty of foods that can be used to create delicious meals as well as healthy snacks to fit in on the go, to supplement your main meals.
How Many Carbs Can You Eat?
On a keto, low carb diet, you'd typically consume most of your calories from high fat, high protein foods, keeping the number of carbs low (hence the ‘low carb’ name). For example, on a stricter Ketogenic diet you should consume no more than 20 grams of net carbs per day, however, if you'd prefer to take a more moderate approach initially then 20-50 grams, or even 50-100 grams of net carbs per day is a good starting point.
This brings us to the sweeteners. The No Sugar Company understand the bad rep sweeteners have in the health industry; we're aware of the negative effects harmful sweeteners can have, for example, maltitol is commonly used as a sugar alternative however it’s known to cause digestive issues, which is why we use more natural, healthier sweeteners instead and don’t use any maltitol in our products.
Our no-sugar keto products contain healthy fats (coconut oil, palm kernel oil, cocoa butter, hazelnut butter, milkfat, palm oil, sunflower lecithin), as well as Erythritol which is known to act as an antioxidant and may improve blood vessel function in people with diabetes (type 2). Evidence also suggests that these benefits could potentially reduce the risk of heart disease.
Erythritol's cost has risen by 300% while the cost of refined sugar continues to go down. Despite this, we continue to use erythritol and absorb the margin squeeze to ensure we have the highest quality ingredients.
Stevia is a natural zero-calorie sweetener derived from the stevia plant. It’s 200 times sweeter than sugar, and better for your body than other sweeteners! In fact, stevia extract has antioxidant properties that help fight free radicals from attacking healthy cells in the body.
Our products contain stevia extract that is safe for consumption and approved by health and safety organisations around the world. We use stevia extract as a sugar substitute so that you can enjoy a no-sugar lifestyle without compromising on taste.
All our products are made with coconut oil which further adds to the health factor of our bars, keto bombs and other delicious products.
Palm Kernel Oil
We use palm kernel oil in all our products; it’s free of cholesterol and is a healthier option to choose. In fact, some medical professionals have advised people suffering from heart problems and high cholesterol level to cook with palm kernel oil to improve their health.
Premium Dry-Roasted Nut Butters
No Sugar Company snacks are made of high-quality, premium good-for-you fats — coconut oil, cocoa butter, almond butter, and more. The fatty acids from these ingredients provide energy to your body and brain. Some of these ingredients, such as almonds, have been found to be weight-loss food.
Good-for-you fats are an essential part of an optimal diet and adding more of these to your diet can help make you feel more satisfied after a meal and reduce hunger.
Cocoa butter contains Vitamin E and is an extremely health fat. It’s full of antioxidants, it’s an effective mood lifter, it boosts immunity, helps to improve heart health and is great for pro-aging skin care.
Almond butter is high in monounsaturated fats which helps to lower LDL (‘bad) cholesterol and raise HDL (‘good’) cholesterol. Almond butter is also known to improve heart health, bone health and control blood sugar levels, good for those suffering from diabetes.
Not only is hazelnut butter delicious but it’s extremely beneficial to your health too. Hazelnuts are packed full of vitamins and minerals and are known to offer numerous health benefits including regulating blood pressure, controlling blood sugar levels, reducing inflammation, amongst others.
Exclusive and Responsibly Sourced Dark Chocolate
Our dark chocolate is exclusive and responsibly sourced from some of the best cacao farms in the world.
Cacao is one of the most antioxidant-rich foods on the planet. It contains a high level of polyphenols which combat oxidative stress in the body. When consuming chocolate, regardless of the diet you follow, it’s important to eat dark chocolate.
Why? Because dark chocolate contains more cacao and less sugar than milk chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate.
