Q: Is Potato Fiber Keto-Friendly? Is it Low-Carb?
Short Answer: Yes, the Potato Fiber in Catalina Crunch is both Keto-Friendly and Low-Carb.
Scientific Evidence & Explanation:
We get quite a few folks who see the ingredient Potato Fiber and think “Potato Fiber = Potato”. They think: “since potato is high in carbs (starch), potato fiber must be high in carbs too”.
This is not true!
Potato Fiber is made by grinding up a whole potato into potato flour and removing the starch (carbs) and protein, leaving mostly insoluble fiber. Since insoluble fiber is not digestible, potato fiber is thus Keto-Friendly and Low Carb.
Here is the nutrition label for Potato Fiber. As you can see, Potato Fiber has only 2g net carbs per tablespoon.
Potato Fiber also comes with a laundry-list of awesome benefits for your body:
- Like all fibers, Potato Fiber helps fill you up quickly and keep you feeling full for longer! This means you won’t need to eat as often and will be less likely to overeat.
- Since Potato Fiber isn’t digested and doesn’t dissolve in water, it helps keep you regular by pushing all the “gunk” in your gut out.
- Insoluble Fiber contains very, very few calories, so if you are counting calories and trying to stay in shape, potato fiber is a great ingredient for you.
