Ketogenic diet friendly cookie seeks those wanting a bite
Launching on Kickstarter this month is Keto Kookie, a cookie that is naturally high in good fats and low net-impact carbohydrates. This also offers benefits in weight management and for those suffering with diabetes as it works to help restore correct insulin responses.
As part of their funding stretch goal rewards, they are releasing two new flavors: snickerdoodle and a mystery flavor, which will join the flagship chocolate chip Keto Kookie. Each Keto Kookie contains 1.4g net carbs, 11g fat, 3g protein, medium chain triglyceride (MCT) oils, and organic, pasture-raised butter.
The ketogenic diet
The ketogenic diet is based upon restricting the consumption of carbohydrates, causing the body to product ketones that increase blood flow to the brain, aid the body in shedding of bad fats, help in preventing heart disease, and allow the body to produce antioxidants. In order to to enable the body to use fat as fuel, most people have to limit their daily carbs to 30 grams or less, equivalent of eating 2 slices of white bread.
