Is Quinoa Keto?

No, quinoa is not keto-friendly. It has a high net carb count, even in small portions. It’s best to avoid quinoa entirely if you want to stay in ketosis. 

Not Keto-Friendly

  • Quinoa is not suitable for the keto diet because it contains a high number of carbs, even in a small portion. 
  • Stick to low-carb grains. Cauliflower rice is a great keto-friendly product to pair with keto meals.
  • Quinoa is low in fat, which doesn’t meet the macros requirements of the keto diet. 
  • The trick with keto is to consume foods low in carbs and high in fats

Natural but Too High in Carbs

  • Although a minimally processed food, the high net carb count is unsuitable for the keto diet.
  • A 100g serving contains 17.5g of net carbs.
  • The keto diet calls for a carb restriction of under 50g per day, with many keto dieters consuming between 20–30g. A 100g serving of quinoa will take up a large proportion of your carb budget.
