The Best Keto Brands and Low Carb Snacks – available in Australia
The number of keto brands and low carb snacks available online is ever increasing, and it can be difficult to know which brands to trust and buy. That’s why we’ve put together this list of the 21 best keto-friendly and low carb snacks available in Australia.
Whether you’re a low-carb athlete, or you prefer to maintain a lower carb intake and lifestyle for your health, this list will help you choose the best keto and low carbs products that you need to try.
Before we can share our best 21 keto brands and low carb snacks, we have three small topics to cover first…
1. What is a low carb diet?
According to MayoClinic.Org, the definition of a low carb diet is “a diet which limits carbohydrates — such as those found in grains, starchy vegetables and fruit — and emphasises foods high in protein and fat. Many types of low-carb diets exist. Each diet has varying restrictions on the types and amounts of carbohydrates you can eat. A daily limit of 0.7 to 2 ounces (20 to 57 grams) of carbohydrates is typical with a low-carb diet.”
Therefore, it’s not as simple as eating all the bacon in Australia. It’s about getting creative with low carb snacks. And if you are trying to follow a diet rich in fats and moderate protein, you will want to know all about the various low carb snacks available in Australia.
2. Why have Australians become so interested in the keto diet?
In an article published by Nine News Australia, quote; “The keto diet has been named as Australia’s most popular diet for 2020, with a new report revealing the trendy low-carb weight loss program generates around 115,000 online searches a month.”
And if you’re interested in learning more about the keto diet, you can check out our Best Keto Snacks at Woolworths and Coles blog here for all the facts and best keto snacks in Australia!
3. Why are more Australians choosing a low carb diet?
According to Google Search, the search term ‘low carb diet’ receives an average 8000+ searches per month in Australia. Furthermore, Australian organisations such as CSIRO have published several books and peer reviewed articles on science of the Low Carb Diet. This is because more people are choosing a low carb diet option to lose weight and to potentially reduce any lifestyle disease risks. In fact, in 2016, it was found that close to 20% of Australian adults were following a low carb diet — up from 16% in 2014.
The rise of Australian adults choosing a low carb diet can be attributed to two trends; the first being worldwide obesity rates and the second being awareness around lifestyle diseases (such as Type 2 diabetes). With that shared, it’s clear as to why more Australians are opting to choose low carb snacks as a healthier alternative.
Now we can have the ball rolling onto the 21 Best Keto Brands and Low Carb Snacks Available Online in Australia…
