Are Soybeans Keto?
Soybeans are keto-friendly because they are low in net carbs with a moderate amount of fat.
Low in Net Carbs
Soybeans are good for keto because they are low in net carbs (2.36g of net carbs per 100g serving).
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.
Moderate Amount of Fats
Soybeans are a good source of fat because they do not contain any non-keto ingredients. (See ingredients list: sweeteners, oils, and food additives)
However, most of your fats should still come from natural and minimally processed sources like virgin olive oil, MCT oil, and grass-fed butter.
It is important to get your fats from healthy sources so your body can burn clean fuel while on ketosis.
Soybeans 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.
