A Note Regarding Keto
Dates, like many other fruits, have a relatively high carb content, which will interfere with this "fuel conversion."
For those who are in the stage of keto adaptation, we recommend filling this narrow carb allowance with nutritionally-dense, fiber-packed raw foods, like veggies in general, and green leafy vegetables in particular. These will provide important phytonutrients and fiber. The latter is crucial for gut health, especially while maintaining ketosis (which relies on fiber-poor foods).
Keto dieters who have come far enough to start introducing healthy carbs other than veggies, and who have grown tired of tasting stevia, agave, and erythritol, will greatly benefit from our cocoa-date truffles. Raw, our truffles contain intact vitamins, polyphenols, and fiber, as well as 0g refined carbs.
Because of their fiber content, dates don't cause the kind of blood sugar spike that refined sugars do. Instead, this fiber serves as a prebiotic substrate for the microbiota populating the digestive tract.
Our truffles are as nutritious and close to nature as a cocoa-based treat can possibly get. In contrast, conventional chocolate is often Dutch-processed, cooked, and loaded with refined sugar.
In recognition of our truffles' healthy, unrefined nature, the Paleo Foundation awarded them the Keto Certification (see https://paleofoundation.com/listings/plantraw/).
According to the Paleo Foundation, the organization that issues the Keto Certification, for "products which contain minimally processed, whole-food ingredients or ingredients with reduced digestibility, 8g net carbohydrate per serving is permissible". Our truffles contain 7g.
So, as a clean, filling snack, absolutely, our truffles are a fantastic option for keto dieters who are ready to introduce some regular fruit carbs.
A Note Regarding Sugars
We chose to use whole organic dates as our sweetener because they are a fruit that comes with fiber, vitamins and other healthy micronutrients.
As a result of their natural fiber content, dates don't cause the kind of sugar spike that comes with refined sugar, honey, date syrup (silan), maple syrup, and other such derivatives.
Like fruits, our products are merely nutritious snacks--filling natural treats that satiate occasional cravings. We created them to substitute for harmful refined carbs. They are not meant to serve as meal replacements.
