Today I want to evaluate the “so-called” keto-friendly Ice creams. You’re going to be exposed to a lot of different products, and sometimes it’s hard to know if they’re actually healthy. 

For something to be keto, it needs to be low-carb. But, even that is a loose term with no legal definition. 

Healthy keto is a healthy version of the ketogenic diet. This includes nutrient-dense foods that have higher-quality ingredients.

Most of these brands use a sugar alcohol called erythritol. What’s good about erythritol is that it’s zero on the glycemic index. What’s bad about it is that unless it’s non-GMO, it could be made from GMO ingredients. None of the major brands that advertise keto ice cream stated if it was non-GMO. 

Looking deeper at a few Keto ice cream brands 
• Enlightened — 7g sugar alcohol/sugar 
• Keto — 8g sugar alcohol/tapioca fiber 
• Rebel — 9g sugar alcohol 
• Halo — 10g of net carbs (contains wheat flour and sugar)

Some of the other ingredients in keto ice cream:
• Dairy — is it organic? 
• Sugar — You don’t want any sugar 
• Wheat — You don’t want any wheat 
• Tapioca — You don’t want any tapioca 
• Egg yolk — is it organic? 

The biggest problem with every single one of these “so-called” keto-friendly ice cream brands is an ingredient called MPC (milk protein concentrate). Another name for this would be milk protein isolates. MPC is a group of proteins that come from milk that are dehydrated and dried out. It has a combination of casein, whey protein, and other proteins. These proteins have been linked to inflammation in the liver. 

Something many people don’t realize is that almost all milk-protein concentrates are imported from China and Mexico. These imported products are also not regulated.
