Everyone is looking for that indulgence that falls under low carb, low sugar, non-GMO and tastes amazing. Honestly, I have found it! The ingredients used are simple and good quality. Their products range from bone broth drinks, bake-your-own mixes to chocolate bars and bread. I can't express how impressed I am with this company's food products. If you are a die-hard Keto fan, then they have the proper test strips to keep you in the "keto-zone" and lots of recipes to keep you on track.
From a different perspective, I look at food as a way to help the body. For those individuals with diabetes, you can have a 'Kiss My Keto' brand chocolate bar. One ingredient is a sugar substitute called 'erythritol' that doesn't raise blood sugar levels. Now, most sugar alcohols cause bloat and gas because it reaches to colon and can ferment. Erythritol is a little different as the bloodstream absorbs most of this sugar alcohol before it reaches the colon. You don't want to over-indulge because too much erythritol may cause upset to the digestive system.
Another ingredient is sunflower lecithin, which is great for those who are looking to improve their cholesterol numbers. It helps eliminate excess fats that may be floating in your bloodstream. The function of lecithin is:
1. breakdown food fats (bile component)
2. helps dissolve stones (kidney & gall bladder)
3. isolate the arterial lining from cholesterol build-up
4. helps the thymus gland resist disease
5. used by the liver during its daily detoxification process
6. membrane fluidity
Another study concluded an improvement in daily functioning, more positive mood and improved memory with elderly patients with dementia/Alzheimer's disease. The medium chain triglycerides (MCT) is something used for fat loss because it is the fuel used during the ketosis state (fat burning mode). hey are more water-soluble than the long chain, so MCTs are easier to digest and are not stored as fat deposits.
Kiss My Keto has other great products like baking mixes that are low in carbohydrates and have a higher protein amount. Individuals with gluten sensitivity or intolerance can enjoy baked goods that aren't substituted with rice flour. I am a huge fan of their baking mixes because I don't enjoy overly sweet foods. My cookie or brownie snack has protein in it, which is great for helping blood glucose control.
