Day 048 – 100 days of Keto (Chow)

This entry is part 40 of 81 in the series 100 days of keto
  • Weight: 205.9
  • Blood ketones: 0.1 mmol/L

Hey, only up 0.1 and still down like 3 from 2 days ago. I’ll consider that a win. Today I’m trying something new: powdered coconut oil in my Keto Chow. Cost wise it works out to be $0.89 per day compared to $0.59 for the same 301 calories. $0.30 isn’t bad. In a previous post I talked about a powdered MCT oil that used maltodextrin as a “powdering” agent – maltodextrin is essentially pure carbs and isn’t suitable for ketosis at all. Quest, the makers of the ever popular Quest Bars makes a powdered MCT oil that uses corn fiber as the powdering agent. In theory it has 0 net carbs. The MCT oil powder is a little pricey but their powdered coconut oil is a larger container (20 oz. vs. 16) and it’s less expensive. The only problem: regular coconut oil doesn’t like refrigerated liquids and turns into big clumps; maybe powdered coconut oil is different?

Last night I made a test batch of 6 blender bottles in a gallon pitcher and replaced the normal 78ml of MCT oil with 86g of powdered coconut oil. The immersion blender did a fine job of mixing it all up, then it was into the fridge overnight! This morning I tested the result and it was completely unremarkable. Win! Now if I could only find this in large bulk bags that would be awesome. I’m still wary of the “corn fiber” not impacting ketosis but I can test that.
