Coconut flour shortage = price jump for Ketofood

Coconut flour shortage = price jump for Ketofood

This entry is part 20 of 179 in the series Ketogenic Soylent

Last night I blew through most of a 25lb bag of coconut flour mixing up Ketofood. I went to order more and, as predicted, the large 25lb bags appear to be out of stock everywhere. I’m not sure if they just stopped making it or if the little notice at the bottom of their product page is relevant

As we transition to our new packaging you may receive either original or new packaging depending on the inventory status of the item(s) you ordered. Thanks for your patience!

Hopefully they’re just switching packaging and in a short time I’ll be able to get the big bags again. Until then I’m stuck ordering 3, 4 or 5 lb bags at around 2x the cost. I raised the price of Ketofood and plan to lower it back down if I can source coconut flour close to the old price. Somebody remind me, OK?

 

Update: Nutivia replied to my tweet about the stock status: “We hope to have it back in stock by mid-January. Thank you for your patience.” So there you go.

    Seems to be a nice drop in MCT here, though

    I wanted to order 4 weeks of ketofood today. Should I wait a week or lessen the order? Or are you set?

      You can order now or later, your choice; my new coconut flour shipment (of the tiny bags) probably won’t be here until after Christmas. Worst case I couldn’t ship your stuff until Saturday the 27th.

    Rad. OK, I’m ordered. I figure I need to commit to a month to really see if this is for me. I’ve been following this blog for about a month now, but any tips you may not have indicated, or need to be stressed again?

      Emphasis on getting enough electrolytes, especially during the adaptation phase. Otherwise you’ll get the super happy fun keto flu. If you start to feel crappy, make some chicken broth with a bullion cube.

      There are more tips and stuff on http://www.ketochow.xyz/ketofood-preparation/
