Good news: Salted Caramel is back in stock and we finally have Vanilla available! Both are version 2.0.1 – I’ll get to the minor version bump in a bit.
fun we had with Vanilla before, when we got today’s batch of Vanilla Keto Chow we pulled a bag from each lot and tested them to make sure the viscosity and flavor were correct – they passed! We did the same thing with the Salted Caramel (it’s standard procedure now). Anyhow, today was Vanilla and Caramel; tomorrow we are supposed to be replenishing Banana and Mocha with Chocolate coming Friday or Monday if all goes well. All are a smaller batch to tide us over until they can deliver the full order of 2.0.1.
Speaking of 2.0.1: It’s a relatively minor change, the only difference is a change in the amount of iron – previous versions of Keto Chow provided 100% of the RDI (18mg a day) if you did 3 meals of Keto Chow. This is the recommended amount for pre-menopausal women; but for post menopausal women, or for men, that amount is borderline high. 40mg a day is the short-term upper tolerable limit, but I didn’t want to be causing a slow build-up of iron in men (especially in myself =) if Keto Chow was used exclusively for all meals over months. The downside to this change is that many women will need to supplement their iron using something like this, this, or this in order to prevent anemia if they use Keto Chow exclusively for all their meals. An occasional meal with red meat will also work (and let’s be honest, you could really go for a rib-eye right now – amiright?). The new packaging notes this change, also the packaging is actually accurate now – no more “label correction” sticker!
If you are curious, you can read the entire Keto Chow changelog/version notes – going back to the very beginning with version 0.7 =)
