Is Mustard Keto?

Mustard is keto-friendly because it is low in net carbs. 

One of the most popular condiments, mustard, fits in well with a keto diet. However, be cautious of its variations. Some varieties of mustard are sweetened with high-carb ingredients. These include honey, sugar, and fruit. 

At the bottom of this article, you will find a few alternatives to mustard when looking at keto-friendly condiments. 

Low Amount of Net Carbs 

  • Mustard contains just 1.8g of net carbs per 100g, making it suitable for keto. 
  • Keeping your net carb consumption between 20–30g daily is important to stay in ketosis. 

Clean Label but Low in Fats

  • Because mustard is low in fats, make sure you supplement it with foods high in healthy fat. While in ketosis, your body uses fat as energy, so it is important to incorporate healthy fats into your diet. 
  • Examples of healthy fat supplements to mustard are grass-fed butter, virgin olive oil, and pesto. 
  • Make sure you check which type of mustard you are eating first. 
  • Some sugar-sweetened varieties contain more carbs than the yellow mustard, enough to push you over with your carb allowance throwing your body out of ketosis
