Can I Have Whey Protein on a Keto Diet?

What is a Ketogenic Diet? 

The Ketogenic or “Keto” diet is a high-fat, moderate protein, low carb diet that continues to gain popularity.  The human body favors carbohydrates as its fuel source.  When carbs are not available, the body begins to break down fat for energy.[1]  The key to managing the keto diet is in consuming the right amount of fat, protein, and carbohydrates. [2]  Understanding the ingredients in a product is important to any diet.  Keto friendly products generally offer a sought after clean, simple label. 


Why BiPro Works on a Keto Diet

Many unflavored dairy-based protein powders, especially whey and milk protein isolates, offer this simplicity as they go through a filtration or ion-exchange process; both of which create a pure and highly concentered form of protein powder.  A clean whey isolate, like BiPro, gives your body 4.7 grams of the three branched chain amino acids (BCAAs), leucine, isoleucine, and valine.  BCAAs have been shown to both improve exercise performance and reduce the breakdown of muscles.  Leucine, specifically, has a major impact on muscle protein synthesis; the process of repairing broken down muscles, allowing them to grow and get stronger.

BiPro is a great way to make meals more nutritious and well-rounded by giving your body essential nutrients.  Protein is also a natural appetite suppressant, so you feel fuller, longer. The recommended protein consumption when on the keto diet ranges from 20 to 35 percent and adding protein powder to a variety of dishes is easy.  When baking, blending carb friendly flour alternatives, like almond flour and vital wheat gluten will create a high-fat but dry baked good.  Adding BiPro, which will be hydrated by the high-fat content, will help to keep your favorite Keto baking recipe moist and give it a more pleasing texture.  BiPro protein powder is also an easy addition to things like soups, sauces, dips, dressings, coffee, and tea.  Visit our recipe page to see how easy it is to add BiPro to some of your favorite foods and drinks.
