What can we say? It was love at first bite! Know Better Foods’ chocolate chip cookies were an absolute hit in our September Keto Krate! It was so fun to watch Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter light up with pictures of everyone loving this tasty keto treat! There was some concern/confusion over the amount of carbs shown on the nutrition label due to the sweetener allulose. In case you missed it let’s do a little recap.
Allulose (in our opinion) is a welcomed development in the low carb snack industry. The taste, texture and performance of allulose is just like other sugars but it has a dramatically better nutrition profile. In studies, allulose demonstrates no effect on blood glucose levels. According to some preliminary findings, it may even reduce blood glucose levels in diabetics, as well as prevent and improve obesity and obesity-related disorders. That’s big news! Of course we will continue to monitor the research and findings on allulose, but so far it has been very promising.
Allulose has one tenth the calories and carbohydrates of table sugar. Ten grams of sugar has 40 calories, and ten grams of carbs. Ten grams of allulose on the other hand, has one calorie and one gram of carbs. Given that Know Better cookies have 28g of allulose–this acts as 2.8g of carbohydrate in the body. Currently the FDA requires allulose to be listed as a sugar and not a sugar alcohol on the nutrition label. Okay, science lesson dismissed.
We love the Know Better Cookie! It’s soft, and delightfully chewy which is something you don’t often find with other gluten free products! They are the perfect sweet treat with no sugar alcohol aftertaste that we as keto’ers have learned to live with. They are grain, gluten, wheat, soy, dairy, peanut, yeast and (best of all) guilt free!! It’s a good thing these cookies are HUGE (seriously, like the size of my hand) so you won’t mind sharing…..if you have to…..I guess.
Know Better Foods has a whole line of keto friendly foods including bread, waffles, donuts and of course, cookies! Hop on over to their website and get to KNOW them better!
