Are Keto-Snaps only for ketogenic diets?
No. We called them Keto-Snaps to help draw public awareness to the ketogenic diet, which was created back in the 1920’s, by Dr. Russell Wilder at the Mayo Clinic, and thankfully is having a resurgence in popularity currently. An abundance of research has since shown that the high fat/low carb features to a ketogenic diet can contribute to a plethora of health benefits. We know from personal and professional experience that a high fat/low carb lifestyle is much more effective in disease prevention and weight control than the Standard American Diet (SAD). Keto-Snaps fit into any diet or nutritional regimen, except a vegan one or if you’re allergic to any of the ingredients.
Who are Keto-Snaps good for?
With only whole food ingredients that every grandmother would approve of, Keto-Snaps are literally good for anyone who is not allergic to any of the ingredients and is old enough to chew.
Can I use these as a pre or post workout snack?
Keto-Snaps are an excellent pre or post workout snack. Many of Lisa’s clients use them for that purpose whether they are following a Keto, Paleo, gluten-free or weight loss regimen. Usually 2-4 do the job.
If these are a keto product, why didn’t you use sugar alcohols to lower the carb content?
Our mission in creating Keto-Snaps was to develop a delicious, guilt-free, health-promoting treat that would not trigger inflammation or create any of the common GI symptoms, like gas, cramping and bloating that consumption of sugar alcohols can produce in some individuals.
Although sugar alcohols, such as erythritol and xylitol are widely used in place of sugars and are generally well tolerated, xylitol is known to cause GI symptoms in some individuals when consumed in large amounts. We want our customers to feel free to consume Keto-Snaps daily without compromise to their health in any way.
Erythritol tends not to cause GI issues as very little of it reaches the large intestine. We chose not to include it in our product because most Erythritol on the market today is made from fermented corn, one of the primary genetically modified crops in the US, or from fermented wheat.
We wanted our product to include only ingredients the body can naturally recognize and metabolize with ease, while keeping the carb grams low enough (less than 2 net carbs/snap) to fit into ketogenic and diabetic diets.
Are Keto-Snaps gluten free?
Yes. The concept of Keto-Snaps was actually spawned after holistic nutritionist, Lisa Jubilee, watched Dr. Tom O’Bryan’s 2016 docu-series, ‘Betrayal: the autoimmune disease solution they're not telling you’. From this docu-series, she became aware of the 2015 study by a group of Harvard researchers that revealed for the first time that all humans experience intestinal permeability or leaky gut after exposure to gluten. She was immediately inspired to take action to assist her clients, family and friends to begin reducing gluten from their daily diet, but without feeling deprived of what virtually everyone craves the most; sweets. Keto-Snaps are made with gluten-free almond flour and contain no chemical preservatives.
Since Keto-Snaps contain no preservatives, what’s the best way to keep them fresh?
One of the unique features of Keto-Snaps is the lack of any chemical preservatives or additives. So, as long as they are kept in a cool, dry place, they will stay snappy (crisp) and fresh for at least 6-8 weeks at room temperature unopened. We chose compostable, wood fiber cellophane sleeves to help preserve the environment and your cookies. But if you purchase Keto-Snaps in bulk, like many of our customers do, we recommend keeping your Keto-Snaps in the fridge in their box or transferring them into an air-tight container or mason jar to aid in preservation of this unique, whole food baked good. To preserve their fresh out of the oven taste and texture for more than 8 weeks, we recommend storing them in your fridge or freezer.
