Chocolate on Keto
You might even be wondering if chocolate on keto is even a thing. Or can all of the products out there claiming to be keto even be trusted?
First of all, you'll be relieved to know that YES you can have chocolate on a keto diet. Everything in moderation is key to reaching and staying in ketosis.
While it's, of course, best to eat natural as possible foods like proteins, healthy fats, and low carb vegetables and fruits, many keto dieters feel that occasionally having chocolate keto treats is ok to do from time to time.
What Chocolate is Best on Keto?
Not all kinds of keto chocolate bars and snacks can be treated the same. Unprocessed cocoa powder and unsweetened chocolate doesn't have any extra sugars added to them, but what makes or breaks your keto diet is what kind of sweetener is used to turn it into keto chocolate chips, keto fat bombs, keto brownies, or keto chocolate protein bars.
And if you've wondered is dark chocolate keto? Dark chocolate on its own is keto-friendly as long as the right type of keto sweetener is used in making the products.
Here's the best kind of sweeteners to look out for when buying store-bought keto chocolate snacks:
These are the 3 keto-friendly sweeteners that most keto-approved treats and sweet snacks are made from. We've noticed that many brands out there will CLAIM to be keto and say on the label their product is sweetened with stevia, for instance.
Be sure to check the labels and DO NOT purchase products that ALSO add maltitol or Xylitol. These sweeteners are known to raise your blood sugar levels and you cannot deduct their sugar alcohol from the carbs when you're calculating net carbs.
