Keto Fat Bomb Grocery Haul | Testing Artificial Sweeteners For a Ketogenic Diet

Keto Fat Bomb Grocery Haul | Testing Artificial Sweeteners For a Ketogenic Diet

July 22, 2019 11 By William Morgan


hi everyone! it’s Esther here. I hope
you’re having a great day! I am here with
my keto fat bomb grocery haul. I have a
lot of sugar substitutes. if you’ve been
watching my channel you know that I’m
about to start testing them and adding
them back into my diet to see how they
affect my blood keto levels as well as
just me being in ketosis in general. I
took a lot of your suggestions and I
have a lot of really good artificial
sweeteners here to try out. but if you’re
just tuning in to my channel I have been
running, I have been running a series on
getting back into ketosis and checking
my blood ketone levels. I’ve been
sharing my test results. if you want to
find out more about what I’ve been doing
you can just click on the card above and
it will take you right to it. but I do
feel like sugar substitutes and fat
bombs kind of go hand in hand. I didn’t
make any fat bombs while I was not
eating sugar substitutes just because
most of the fat bombs that I eat are sweet or
they have dairy in them if they’re savory.
and as most of you know I have cut out
dairy for a while. so I’m just really
excited to start having fat bombs again!
so let’s get into the grocery haul. so
the first item I got is this raw coconut
butter. this works really well with any
sort of keto baking and with fat bombs
in general. it just has the right texture
to melt really well and it just tastes
really good too. so I got this artesana
organics brand, I guess is how you say it.
and it’s whole coconut puree so there’s
no added sugars in here. and then the
next item is that I bought is just
ghirardelli 100% unsweetened cocoa. I get
several different brands. I just make
sure it’s unsweetened.
this one just happen to be on sale this
week so I got this one. I’ve actually
never tried to ghirardelli Cocoa. so I’m
sure it’s really good. I remember really
enjoying their chocolates when I was not
on keto. and then I bought a bunch of
lemons. so this might give you a clue as
to my next fat bomb flavor. the first
artificial sweetener that I purchase is
monk fruit in the raw. I’ve been wanting to
try out monk fruit for a while. I see it
on a lot of keto blogs and vlogs and
I’ve seen it on The Dr. Oz show as well, and
I’ve been really curious to try it ever
since. so really excited to try this stuff,
see how it tastes as well as how it
affects my ketone levels. now I do want to
just kind of note the nutrition facts on
each of these artificial sweeteners for
you guys. so if we look at this one it
looks as if this monk fruit is a blend
of maltodextrin and monk fruit extract.
I’m going to start a blog post just kind
of digging in to these different
ingredients and any of my findings on
those. so for this one teaspoon is
considered a serving size. and that has
pretty much zero calories. the total
carbs in one teaspoon is 0.5
grams. and it also says sugars less than
.5 grams. the next artificial
sweetener that I purchased is swerve.
again it’s one that I just see on a lot
of keto vlogs & blogs. so very excited
to try this out. I see it on pinterest a
lot as well. ok and here are the
nutrition facts for swerve sweetener. so
serving size is one teaspoon for this.
zero calories and it has zero fat, zero
sodium. four grams of carbs which is
pretty significant for a ketogenic diet.
zero sugars and four grams of erythritol.
it does have this little disclaimer on
here.
it says the ingredients in swerve do not
affect blood sugar so the carbohydrates
it contains are considered non impact. so
I find that pretty interesting. the
ingredients in the swerve are erythritol,
oligosaccharides, and natural flavors,
which could be anything. I don’t know
what that means/ and this one I didn’t
purchase today I actually had it in my
cabinet. so I’m pretty familiar with
using this. this is stevia in the raw and
this is the one for baking. it’s actually a
blend. if you look at the ingredient it’s
maltodextrin blended with stevia leaf
extracts. okay for the stevia in the raw
nutrition facts. serving size is one
teaspoon. zero calories, zero fat, zero
sodium, and it says less than .5
grams of carbs, sugar less than .5
grams, zero grams of protein. I also
bought a erythritol. it’s an
all-natural sweetener. so I’ll be testing
this out as well. i think i have used
erythritol in the past as well, and it
is one of my favorite sweeteners that i
found so far. so I’m excited to see how
this affects my ketone levels. so for the
erythritol 1 teaspoon is a serving
size. seems to be the trend with all of
these artificial sweeteners. zero
calories, zero fat, zero sodium, zero
cholesterol, four grams of carbs, and it
also says four grams of sugar alcohols.
and I don’t see an ingredient list. I
think that’s because it is a hundred
percent. yeah here it is, so this is a
hundred percent pure erythritol.
then I also got this cute little
chocolate mold. I use a lot of different
chocolate molds all the time. and these
are cute little… they look like peanut
butter cups chocolate molds. they are
smaller than the ones i typically use
for fat bombs. so there’ll be little mini
fat bombs. and lastly i got xylitol. so i
had a couple of requests to test this
one out. so i’ll be testing out xylitol.
i tried xylitol a long time ago back in
the day. I used to use it to make protein
bars when I was on a high protein diet.
but i have not had this since I’ve been
on keto, so I’ll be interested to see how
this affects me being in ketosis. and
for the xylitol the ingredients are a
hundred percent xylitol. and a serving
size of this is four grams which is i
believe about 1 teaspoon as well. 10
calories. that’s pretty significant. and
it has 0 grams of fat, zero sodium, zero
cholesterol, four grams of carbs, and of
that it’s four grams of sugar alcohol. ok
so this concludes my keto fat bomb
grocery haul. I hope you enjoyed this
video. if you did give me a thumbs up and
comment below if you have any questions.
I would like to know what your favorite
keto sweetener substitute is. so if you
could comment below which sugar
substitute with you most use on a
ketogenic diet. I would love to hear what
you guys are using. and that’s all I have
for today, so I will see you next time.
thank you so much for watching. bye
everyone!
