About Those New Low-Carb Products ...

Most of the new low-carb products make up for the loss of carbohydrates with added fat and saturated fat. So just know exactly what you are getting yourself into, especially if you have medical conditions where higher-fat food can be problematic (irritable bowel syndrome, acid reflux, etc.)

Here are some of the new low-carb items I found, along with their calorie and fat totals (listed in order from highest in fat grams to lowest):

  • Keto Rt. 66 (Rocky Road) Ice Cream: 1/2 cup has 270 calories, 21 g fat, 13 g saturated fat, 140 mg cholesterol.
  • Atkins Endulge Peanut Butter or Chocolate bars: One bar has 80 calories, 16 g fat, 12 g saturated fat, 30 mg cholesterol.
  • Skinny Carb Bar (Silhouette) Chocolate Peanut Butter: One bar has 150 calories, 11 g fat, 6 g saturated fat, 30 mg cholesterol.
  • Klondike Carb Smart Ice Cream Bar: One bar has 170 calories, 15 g fat, 11 g saturated fat, 15 mg cholesterol.
  • Keto Forever Raspberry Bars: One bar has 190 calories, 14 g fat, 9 g saturated fat, 11 mg cholesterol.
  • Carb Solutions Mint Chip Ice Cream: 1/2 cup has 150 calories, 11 g fat, 7 g saturated fat, 35 mg cholesterol.
  • Atkins Endulge Ice Cream Cups: 1/2 cup has 30 calories, 11 g fat, 6 g saturated fat, 40 mg cholesterol.
  • Klondike Carb Smart Vanilla Ice Cream Sandwich: One has 80 calories, 4.5 g fat, 2.5 g saturated fat, 10 mg cholesterol.
