FAQ


What is Keto?
Keto is short for Ketogenic. This refers to getting your body into ketosis, which means your body will switch from burning sugars to burning fat. For this, it requires a restricted amount of net carbs while increasing the amount of dietary fat.

What is the Keto lifestyle?
The Keto lifestyle is the opposite from the traditional approach to nutrition, dieting and even eating. We’ve all heard ‘we need carbs for fuel and fat is bad for us’. However, now more and more scientific studies have shown the opposite.

Extra fat from MCT oil? 
KC is boosted with one tsp of MCT oil per bar. MCT oil (medium chain triglycerides) functions as a high-fat fuel for the body, which is satisfying and quickly metabolised by the liver, giving an instant energy and brain boost. Cacao with MCT Oil is an excellent power blend for your pre and/or post workouts.

Sweet and Keto friendly?
Our products are without refined sugars or carbs containing sweeteners like agave syrup, palm sugar etc. We use Erythritol instead, which is super keto friendly and doesn’t have the medical aftertaste as with other (alcohol) sweeteners.

What is Erythritol?
We use Erythritol for our sweet chocolate blend. This is a carbohydrate that is naturally occurring in fruits and vegetables. The great thing about erythritol is that it has a glycemic index of zero, so it does not affect our blood sugar and it has very few calories. The difference with other sugar alcohols is that erythritol is metabolism-friendly and easy to digest.

Where’s our cacao coming from?
Our bars are made with Fino de Aroma cacao, from the Arauca region in Colombia. The Fino de Aroma denomination is an International Cocoa Organization (ICCO)* classification. Around 8% of the cocoa produced in the world is Cacao Fino de Aroma. It’s mainly grown in Colombia, Ecuador, Venezuela, and Peru, and is characterized by its fruity and floral scent, with hints of walnut malt.

Is the Ketogenic lifestyle for everyone?
Keto Cacao is specially created for people following a ketogenic, high fat / low-carb diet. Although there is much research done to support the health benefits of the Keto Diet we still encourage you to do your own ketogenic research when starting this lifestyle.

How can I learn more about the ketogenic lifestyle?
We are Ketogenic fanatics and we share more about this lifestyle on our newsletter and blog.

How long do the bars from Keto Cacao last?

Do you ship internationally?
