In this video, we’re going to talk about a question I got from a viewer: can a product with dextrose still be keto-friendly?

The answer is: maybe! It depends on how much dextrose is in the product. Small amounts might be okay, but large amounts can kick you out of ketosis.

On Healthy Keto, you want to only consume carbohydrates that are low on the glycemic index. Low-glycemic carbs are carbs that do not cause a sharp spike in your blood sugar levels.

The essence of the keto diet is to lower your carbohydrates to keep your blood sugar and insulin levels normalized. You can do this by consuming less than 50 grams of carbs per day.

Even if you’re having plenty of fat and moderate protein, your body won’t go into ketosis without keeping your carbs very low. Ideally, you should keep your carbs below 30 grams per day on Healthy Keto.

A single bagel has 48 grams of net carbs (50g carbs – 2g fiber = 48g net carbs).

Without fiber, your blood sugar levels spike much more quickly. The lower the fiber, the higher a food is on the glycemic index.

A raw potato, while full of carbs, will not spike your blood sugar levels as quickly as cooked potatoes, chips, fries, or even a bagel. Heat and processing break down the starch and makes it more easily absorbed, which causes a faster spike in blood sugars.

Here are some ingredients you should avoid in products marketed as “keto-friendly.”
• Dextrose
• Maltodextrin
• IMO (isomaltooligosaccharides)
• Corn syrup
• Sugar (including raw sugar)
• Tapioca
• Fructose
• Coconut sugar
• Agave nectar
• Honey
• Maple syrup
• Molasses
