Is Teriyaki Sauce Keto?

Teriyaki sauce is a high-carb, processed food and is unsuitable for the ketogenic diet. It contains little fat, lots of carbohydrates, and many unhealthy additional ingredients. For this reason, teriyaki sauce should be avoided by keto dieters.

Not Keto-Friendly 

  • The keto diet requires you to eat a low-carb, high-fat, moderate-protein diet. Teriyaki sauce has 15.6g of carbohydrates per 100g, making it a high-carb food.
  • High-carb foods are unsuitable for the ketogenic diet as they raise blood sugar levels and kick your body out of the metabolic state of ketosis.
  • Additionally, as processed food, teriyaki sauce contains many additives and unhealthy ingredients.
  • Keto dieters should opt for lower-carb sauces made at home to avoid unhealthy ingredients.

High in Carbohydrates 

  • The aim of the ketogenic diet is to move your body into the metabolic state of ketosis. In this state, your body burns stored fat for fuel rather than blood sugar.
  • By eating a low-carb, high-fat diet, you can keep your body in this state for prolonged periods of time, helping you lose weight and body fat.
  • Teriyaki sauce has a high carbohydrate content. If consumed, it would cause a spike in blood sugar, leading to insulin release.
  • This would, in turn, cause the body to stop burning stored fat and, instead, switch to blood sugar as a fuel source.

Low in Fats 

  • As well as being high in carbohydrates, teriyaki sauce is also very low in fats.
  • The ketogenic diet requires you to eat more fats than usual. You should aim to eat more healthy fats when dieting the keto way.

You can get healthy fats in your diet by consuming food like avocado and olive oil.
