Keto (aka ‘the ketosis diet’) is a high-fat, low-carb diet that aims to get your body into a state of ketosis. This is when your body only burns fat for energy instead of the carbohydrates from your food that it would normally use.
While not all experts agree, some studies do show that keto can be a great way to lose weight and manage diabetes.
Is kefir keto-friendly?
Yes! Kefir can be an awesome drink to incorporate into your keto diet. The goal with most keto diets is to limit your carbohydrates to 20-50 grams a day. An average serving of kefir contains around 10-13 grams of carbs – well within that limit.
Better yet, Nexba’s Kefir has just 0.6 grams of carbohydrates. That’s because we make it with water, not milk, and we keep it sweet with our no-sugar, ZERO calorie natural sweetener blend.
Is kefir healthy?
Heck yes, it is! Kefir is full of nutrients, vitamins and probiotics, so it’s a great addition to almost any diet.
Our bodies are filled with live bacteria, both good and bad. Probiotics are the good guys – the ones that help our bodies to digest the food we eat and even help to create important vitamins.
And studies show that kefir is one of the best sources of probiotics available, with up to 56 different bacterial and yeast strains!
