Non-keto ingredients

Anyone starting a keto lifestyle knows: this is going to require a lot of label reading at the supermarket. Ingredients matter over carb count and just because something is low carb does not necessarily mean it is good for your health.

Coming off a standard high carb diet filled with processed and pre-packaged foods it is very important to learn what to look out for in terms of ingredients and not just nutritional facts. This is why I get send a lot of photos of product labels with the question ‘Is this actually keto?’.
An avocado or a head of lettuce may not solicit such a question but deciding if a pre-packaged food is okay to purchase can be a true minefield. Below you will find a list of the main non-keto culprits:

A
Acesulfame potassium (a.k.a. ace-k)

Agave Syrup

Autolyzed yeast
