Are Chia Seeds Keto?

Chia Seeds are high in fats but should be consumed in moderation on keto because they are high in net carbs.

High in Net Carbs

Chia Seeds are high in net carbs (7.72g of net carbs per 100g serving) so you need to limit their serving size.

It is important to limit your net carb consumption to 20g - 30g per day to stay in ketosis.

You can calculate your ideal daily net carb allowance by using this keto macros calculator. Then use the serving calculator below to determine a serving size that fits your net carb budget.

Excellent Source of Healthy Fats

Chia Seeds are an excellent source of healthy fats because they are a nutrient-dense whole food.

It is important to get your fats from healthy sources so your body can burn clean fuel while on ketosis.

Whole Food

Whole foods are packed with nutrients and should be a staple of a healthy keto diet.

Eating whole foods lowers the risk of cancer, heart disease, and type 2 diabetes.

You can both lose weight and improve overall health by eating mostly low-carb whole foods on keto.

Minimally Processed

Chia Seeds are minimally processed and free of harmful ingredients like non-keto sweeteners, highly refined oils, and food additives.

It is important to check both macros and ingredients of your foods to achieve a healthy weight loss on keto.
