Here at Killer Creamery, we believe that eating healthy is more than just counting calories. For us, eating healthy also means being happy. So, we crafted our delicious keto ice cream recipes that provide the nutritional value you seek while maintaining the taste and texture you crave. With every mouthwatering spoonful, you’ll be rewarding yourself in more ways than one. Below, we discuss the nutritional information of all of keto ice cream pints.
HOW IS IT SWEETENED?
In the keto world, sugar-alternatives have become incredibly popular. It’s important to remember, however, not all sweeteners are created equal - both in taste and impact. That’s why we’ve strategically selected only the very best sweeteners available on the market in order to deliver the ultimate ice cream experience while keeping your body’s metabolic needs in mind
Allulose kicks off our A-list line up with a sweet 4g per serving in every pint. Allulose is the new kid on the sweetener block and is actually considered a rare sugar found in nature. Despite its close resemblance to the traditional stuff, it has one tenth of the calories as table sugar. Allulose can be found naturally in small amounts of foods that you’re probably already very familiar with including figs, maple syrup, and raisins. Allulose has been shown to not have an impact on blood sugar, so be sure to subtract it (along with fiber and sugar alcohols) when calculating a product’s net carbohydrate content.
Experts agree, erythritol is the most keto friendly sugar alcohol on the market. It’s important to keep in mind, not all sugar alcohols are the same. We use erythritol because it’s 70 percent as sweet as traditional cane sugar yet it’s essentially calorie free. Compared to all other sugar alcohols, erythritol has the highest GI tolerance. This means it’s the least likely to cause stomach issues when compared to Xylitol, Maltitol, and Sorbitol. Research also suggests that Erythritol has no effect on blood sugar or insulin making it very diabetic-friendly.
Often referred to as Luo Han Guo, Monk Fruit first gained it’s popularity in China and Thailand. In fact, it all began more than a thousand years ago, when Luo Han monks (hence the name) in China initially discovered it and started harvesting the green fruit. It’s been used medicinally throughout history but is now more commonly known and used as a sweetener. Monk fruit is 300x sweeter than sugar, but it has no impact on blood glucose levels and insulin. Monk Fruit also has impressive antioxidant properties and might just be the perfect addition to your keto arsenal.
Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT oil) are molecules found naturally in coconut and palm oil. Our MCT oil (C8 or, more specifically, caprylic acid), is sourced from coconut oil. MCT’s are NOT coconut oil, rather they exist in coconut oil along with other fats and types of MCTs. Your body can rapidly convert MCT’s into ketones [*] as they are digested differently than other fats. Once consumed, they are sent directly to the liver to be converted into ketones. Often referred to as a super-fuel, ketones are an alternative energy source that are produced by the body when in a fasted state or on a ketogenic diet. Research is showing that a ketogenic diet, and even ketones themselves, may provide great health benefits including improved mitochondrial function [*], lowered inflammation [*], increase brain function [*], and an overall improvement in energy [*], among other things.
SOLUBLE CORN FIBER
We strategically chose to use a prebiotic fiber in our ice cream called Soluble Corn Fiber. Soluble Corn Fiber is not to be confused with high fructose corn syrup. Unlike other fibers on the market, our fiber of choice has more than double the stomach tolerance, meaning it’s unlikely that you’ll experience stomach issues after eating it. Soluble Corn Fiber is broken down and digested by the bacteria in your gut and converted into short chain fatty acids (SCFAs), including an extra-special SCFA called Butyrate. This short chain fatty acid has been shown in research to offer many potential health benefits including anti-inflammatory effects, cardiovascular system benefits, improved insulin sensitivity and much more.
