Is Almond Flour Keto-Friendly?

Yes, almond flour is keto; however, its consumption should be limited.

There are many foods we enjoy but have to forgo because it does not fit squarely into a standard keto diet. For the ones who do fit, there is the problem of how to incorporate them into keto-friendly recipes.

Almond flour is a keto flour alternative obtained from grinding and processing almonds. It serves well as an alternative because it contains significantly fewer carbs and more fats than grain-based flour. However, there is a catch to it.

Keto if Limited

  • Almond flour being keto is dependent on the quantity consumed and the frequency of consumption. Therefore, almond flour is the gray area between a portion of food being keto-friendly and not keto-friendly.
  • Almond flour has high net carbs, containing about 13.3g of net carbs per 100g serving. 

High in Healthy Fats

  • Almond flour is a nutrient-rich whole food and a source of healthy fats, which is one of the bases of a keto diet.
  • Try coconut flour as well.
  • Your body burns clean fuel from the fats obtained each time it is ketosis with almond flour.

High in Net Carbs

  • The drawback with almond flour is that it contains many carbs, so your consumption needs strict monitoring.
  • Using a keto macronutrient calculator with almond flour becomes necessary to gauge your daily carb intake.
  • You must scrutinize the ingredients that make almond flour to ensure you are not getting way more carbs than you need to go into ketosis.
