Keto-Friendly Chocolate; Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth!
Eating chocolate whilst on a diet? Yes please.
Keto-friendly chocolate is diet approved! The ketogenic diet has become very popular in the past few years, with more and more people jumping on board with this low carb, high fat way of eating. The keto-friendly foods options can be limiting but luckily, here at Mr Popple’s Chocolate we’ve got keto-friendly products that will satisfy your cravings without sacrificing your ketosis!
The ketogenic diet has been shown to help with weight loss and diabetes management. The keto community is growing rapidly as more people discover the benefits of this sustainable way of eating, that cuts out processed foods and encourages healthy whole foods.
We use Yacon syrup to sweeten some of our bars, and with a GI (Glycemic index) of just 1, another great bonus for people who are avoiding sugar in their diets.
What is The Keto Diet?
The keto diet involves staying away from carbs and sugars as much as possible, but the ketogenic lifestyle shouldn’t mean that you can’t enjoy yourself. Keto friendly chocolate bars are ketosis-friendly as long as you keep your sugar intake low, so our refined sugar free chocolate bars are perfectly fine to eat.
The keto diet consists of a high fat, moderate protein and very low carbohydrate intake. In order to stay in ketosis (fat burning mode), it’s important to limit both types of carbohydrates: net carbs and total carbs.
In a nutshell? Sugar is the main culprit in keto-friendly diet.
The Carb Culprit:
Carbohydrates and sugars are one in the same. Simple carbohydrates (sugars) raise blood sugar levels which is not keto friendly at all! Sometimes even complex carbs like whole grains can cause a spike in your blood glucose, so it’s best to avoid them while you’re trying to get into ketosis. Grabbing you favourite Mr Popple’s yacon sweetened chocolate bar isn’t going to affect your sugar levels!
Carbohydrates are broken down into sugar within the body, which can then be used for energy or stored as fat. The ketogenic diet encourages low carb intake and also minimises dietary sugars to help people enter ketosis faster. Low sugar chocolate is keto-friendly. We created low carb low sugar chocolate that will satisfy your sweet tooth, without all those pesky carbs and sugars you might find in regular ketogenic treats.
Our organic chocolate bars are the perfect keto snack because they combine healthy fats with a hit of sweetness without any added sugar or carbohydrate content. We create our keto friendly chocolate using ketogenic ingredients such as Peruvian cacao nibs, which contains zero sugar and carbs. Low carb sugars are much easier to digest than sugar, are keto friendly and have a low glycaemic index.
Yacon syrup is a great way we keep the sugar content low in our chocolate bars. The syrup has a super low GI! This means there is no nasty sugar crash or hidden sugars in our bars, just the sublimely sweet goodness of this promising Peruvian plant! Regular keto treats ARE possible whilst maintaining a ketogenic lifestyle with low carb, low sugar products like ours!
