What is Keto, Ketosis, Ketogenic?
Generally, a ketogenic diet is a high fat, moderate protein, low carb diet. Keto refers to a ketogenic diet or the metabolic state of ketosis. On a typical carbohydrate diet (including sugar, breads, grains, fruit, etc.) the body burns glucose for energy. But when the body is depleted of carbohydrates it is forced to turn to fats for energy.
Ketosis is the metabolic process in which the body uses fat stores as it’s primary source of energy (as opposed to glucose). When the body does not have enough sugar from carbohydrates to use as energy, the liver uses fat to create ketones which are used as fuel. The primary function of a ketogenic diet is to achieve and stay in ketosis. Generally, 70% of calories come from fat, 20% from protein, and 10% from carbs. Most people eat between 0-50g of net carbs per day to stay in ketosis. If you are embarking on a keto diet for the first time, they recommend you consult with your medical practitioner prior to making any dramatic changes to your current diet.

Is Dang Bar Keto?

The low net carb count and high fat make it the perfect snack to help stay within your carb limit and hit your fat needs. Dang Bar is made from a combination of almond butter, cocoa butter, coconut, complete pea protein, sunflower seeds and chia. It contains an ideal ratio of macronutrients for a high fat, moderate protein, low carb keto diet: 70% fat, 20% protein, and 10% net carbs.
I heard “pea protein crisps” have rice flour. Does this mean it’s non Keto?
An ideal keto diet is high fat, moderate protein, low carbohydrate. The way many keto dieters get this breakdown is to avoid ingredients with lots of carbs and there are lists that advise keto dieters to avoid things like legumes, grains, or certain fruits/vegetables. Dang Bar is 100% plant-based, and while it contains peas and rice flour, it’s got the perfect nutritional profile for a keto diet.
What is chicory root fiber?
Chicory root fiber, made from the root of chicory plants, is a great source of fiber. Chicory root fiber is special in the fact that is soluble and also functions as a prebiotic. This kind of Inulin fiber helps with keeping food flowing through you at a regular pace and makes you feel more full after consumption. This ingredient is especially great if you’re trying to work on portion control or intermittent fasting. In fact, some people use this earthy plant powder as a caffeine-free substitute to their morning coffee.
I don’t feel well my first week of Keto? I heard something about the Keto flu. What is that?
Keto dieters often experience a series of side effects as their bodies adjust to the ketogenic diet. As a result of restricting carbohydrates these include fatigue, dizziness, lightheadedness, poor sleep, difficulty with exercise, and constipation, all resulting from extreme restriction of carbohydrates.
These symptoms typically subside between a few days to a few weeks after the body fully enters into ketosis and adjusts to relying on fat for fuel. Increasing fat, water, salt, and magnesium intake can help fight off keto flu.
Can I eat Dang Bar even if I am not Keto?
Dang Bar is for everyone. While great for a ketogenic lifestyle, it’s also perfect for anyone looking for snacks that are low carb, plant based, or vegan friendly. Dang Bar is designed for anyone looking for a filling, satiating snack that brings sustained energy and doesn’t spike your blood sugar like other honey/maple/brown rice syrup laden bars.

They say the two most important days are the day you were born and the day you figure out why you were born.
The first day founder, Vincent, doesn’t remember, but the second day he remembers clearly: April 29, 2011. In his Mom’s kitchen, he told her about his plans to start a pop-up restaurant and she gave him a recipe on an index card for Thai lettuce wraps that included toasted coconut. Vincent was so taken by the aroma and flavor of toasted coconut that he launched a company to sell it as a snack and named it after his mom.
