When you’re on a ketogenic diet, one of the most important things is to read and understand labels. This video will give you some basics on the most important things to look for on a food label. 

You’ll see the nutrition facts on the label, including the serving size and servings per container or unit. The entire label is based on the serving size, not the servings for the entire container. If you eat more than the serving size, you have to multiply the number of servings you consumed by the amount of sugar or carbs on the label to get the real amount of sugar or carbs you consumed. 

Sugar, total carbs, and fiber are important to look at. You have to take away the fiber from the total carbs to get the net carbs (total carbs – fiber = net carbs). Fiber doesn’t spike insulin. You want the sugar to be as low as possible. 

When you do keto, you want to keep your net carbs between 20-50g per day. But, the type of carbs is also important. You don’t want to get your carbs from something that is high on the glycemic index. You want low-glycemic carbohydrates. 

A few ingredients to avoid:
• Maltodextrin 
• Dextrose 
• Corn fiber 
• Tapioca 
• Wheat 
• Gluten 
• Sugar 

When it comes to the ingredients at the bottom of the label, the first ingredient is typically the majority of the product. 

Something else to keep in mind is that modified food starch is MSG. Also, if something says “olive oil (or soy, canola, coconut, cottonseed oil),” they now have the option to use whatever oil they want.
