Is Isomalt Keto?

Isomalt is a low-glycemic sugar alcohol with a moderate amount of carbs. It is allowed on keto as long as it is in moderation.

Low-Glycemic Sugar Alcohol

Isomalt is a sugar alcohol with a low-glycemic index of 2. However, it still contains carbs so it may prevent you from reaching ketosis if you consume too much.

As an alternative, you may use non-glycemic and non-caloric sweeteners such as stevia, monk fruit, and erythritol.

Moderate Amount of Net Carbs

Isomalt contains 2.5g of net carbs per 10g serving. You need to be mindful of its serving size because it has a fair amount of carbs.

It is important to limit its consumption so you won't exceed the 20g - 30g daily net carb limit.
