Flavor of the week: Get 10% off the Cookies and Cream Keto Chow 21 meal packs between June 24 – June 30

Until June 23 you can get 10% off the 21 meal “week” size of the Cookies & Cream Keto Chow. Check out the flavor reviews of Cookies & Cream. We sometimes get asked: “what can I do with Keto Chow besides make shakes?” The best place to start is our Keto Chow Recipes page, here are some of the recipes that can use Cookies & Cream Keto Chow:

You should check out the reviews of Keto Chow, we also get a lot of reviews on our Facebook page and on the Keto Chow subreddit.

Holy Chow this is tasty!
I have finally become consistent with my keto WOE and tracking and after reading the feedback on Keto Chow decided to order a sample bundle. Which turned into another sample bundle (because my spouse wants to try all the flavors and needed his own blender bottle.) Then 3 big bags and the gourmet sample bundle. I’m a PB Choc fan but what surprised me the most is how much I love the vanilla flavor! I also like knowing it’s a complete meal which helps for my keto woe.

Here’s another review, it should be noted that I publish all of the reviews that come in – bad or good – as they are, typos intact. The only ones I remove are spam posts from people wanting you to buy pills to “enhance performance” and such.

Love Keto Chow!
I first tried Keto Chow by buying the sampler package that came with a blender bottle and was hooked! I own my own business and work some pretty crazy hours so being able to quickly put together a day’s worth of meals is invaluable to me. They’re so filling and tasty! Hands down the best meal replacement shake I’ve ever tried. Then I saw they have a base powder that lets me use up some protein powder I got on sale I thought I’d use more of on keto. Brilliant! I’ll probably start buying the full mixes when I’ve used up my protein powder but for now I’m happy to finally have a use for this protein powder and I’ve had no trouble staying in ketosis while using this base powder.

One other thing I want to mention is how well Chris and this company handle problems. There was an issue with the mix I was sent but I got an email letting me know what was happening and how it was going to be fixed before I even received the first package. My replacement was sent out ASAP and they didn’t make me go through the hassle of returning the bad product. I really appreciate how the situation was handled on their end.

Keto Chow and Heavy Metal Exposure (Proposition 65 warning)

For any unaware, California has a fun citizen’s initiative commonly referred to as “Proposition 65” or “Prop 65” – it’s the reason many consumer products have a warning that “this product contains chemical known to cause cancer in California” (or similar) which is generally followed by everyone thinking “good thing I’m not in California!” I’ll not get into the validity of the “No Significant Risk Levels” and “Maximum Allowable Dose Levels” established as part of Prop 65, they are what they are, and if a company sells something to a resident of California, a California resident (usually a lawyer) has the ability to sue if there is not a warning and the product contains levels of heavy metals or other contaminants higher than the levels established. I can say that the heavy metal levels in Proposition 65 are low enough that coffee shops have had to post warnings and Disneyland has warnings in their picnic area.

Keto Chow was served a notice that “Safe Products for Californians” intends to sue Keto Chow for not having warnings that Keto Chow contains heavy metals, specifically lead. The tactic being that many of the levels defined by Proposition 65 are so absurdly low that quite literally EVERYTHING has enough lead to qualify for needing a warning. Also, since Keto Chow contains protein, and the ‘cool’ thing to do these days is use plant protein which tends to be from China and contains a lot of heavy metals, logically Keto Chow will contain heavy metals (like Soylent™ does). The thing is: we don’t use plant protein, instead we only use protein created by sustainable mobile bioreactors (ruminants); in fact, very few of the ingredients come from plants and the animals don’t absorb heavy metals.

Due to the lawsuit, we paid for an independent lab to test for heavy metals in Keto Chow, the complaint was only for “Lead and Lead Compounds” but we went ahead and had Arsenic, Cadmium, Lead, and Mercury tested. The test has a minimum measurable level of 0.01 mg/kg of material, and each meal of Keto Chow is around 44-50g of powder. Here are the measured levels of heavy metals in Keto Chow, the serving size, and what your exposure is compared to the allowed levels with one caveat: the cadmium level is only established for inhalation, if you ingest it orally there is not established level.

Lead is interesting, Proposition 65 establishes a “No Significant Risk Levels” for causing cancer set at 0.015 mg or 15 micrograms per day. Lead also has a “Maximum Allowable Dose Levels” (MADL) for causing reproductive harm of 0.0005 mg or 0.5 micrograms per day. The MADL is set by looking at the level that no observable effect occurs and dividing that by 1000. In other words, if a toxin causes an effect at 10 units, the MADL would be defined at 0.01 units; meaning that the dose where lead will cause reproductive harm is 0.5 mg or 500 micrograms per day. I guess it’s surprising that many of the flavors of Keto Chow do NOT contain enough lead to require a warning label. Notably, the ones with the highest levels are those that contain spices or other plant-derived flavorings.

Chocolate and Mocha both contain cocoa powder, a plant product, and both have the highest levels of heavy metals on the list; though the levels are still far below the very low bar set by Proposition 65 to necessitate a warning for cancer. The threshold for needing a “reproductive harm” warning is 0.00050 mg – as a precaution against future litigation we just went ahead and put the warning up for everything.

Moving Warehouses!

In September 2016, we moved Keto Chow out of the front 3 rooms of our house and into a 4000 square foot warehouse. At the time we thought “no way will we fill this space!” – here we are, 2.5 years later and getting ready to move to a 17090.92 square foot warehouse (that’s according to the measurements I took and using the definition of rentable space in the lease agreement, the actual lease agreement defines the space as 17535 square feet – after a lot of back and forth I think they don’t care about the square footage, they care about the lease rate per month, I let it go… mostly). There’s about 3x more space for storage at the new location on the floor without any pallet racking than there is at our current spot WITH racking. Once we have the racks installed at the new location we’ll be able to seriously amp up the number of orders we can process.

It’s also going to be nice to have a larger office. Right now Miriam’s “office” is a desk in the corner of the retail storefront, my “office” is a 6×7 storage room with artificial grass as carpet (the previous tenant was a batting company), Holly and Steve share a desk by the front door, it’s kinda nuts. We’ll actually have more finished office space with air conditioning than the entire current warehouse. That air conditioning will be nice when we do our Utah Keto Meat-Ups during the summer – the only problem will be that the meetup space is on the second floor and the landlord isn’t required to install an elevator because “Elevators are not required in facilities under three stories or with fewer than 3000 square feet per floor” so we have a contingency plan in place for helping people get up the stairs.

Anyhow, we’re targeting starting the move around July 1, 2019. The new location will have cool signs and stuff to make it easy to find but we won’t be on Redwood Road anymore so we’ll miss out on the incidental traffic that we get from “I was driving past and saw your sign that says ‘keto’ – what do you do here?” The new address is:

12577 South 265 West, Unit 4A (map)
Draper, UT 84020

Flavor of the week: Get 10% off the Chocolate Keto Chow 21 meal packs between June 17 – June 23

Until June 23 you can get 10% off the 21 meal “week” size of the Chocolate Keto Chow.  It should be noted that Chocolate is our most popular flavor. Check out the flavor reviews of Chocolate. We sometimes get asked: “what can I do with Keto Chow besides make shakes?” The best place to start is our Keto Chow Recipes page, here are some of the recipes that use Chocolate Keto Chow:

You should check out the reviews of Keto Chow, we also get a lot of reviews on our Facebook page and on the Keto Chow subreddit.

This stuff is amaaaazing. I’ve tried so many different keto shakes and brands trying to find a flavor I like and I just really dislike all of them. My problem is the artificial sweeteners that are used, I just really dislike the flavor of them and they seem to over power every shake I’ve had but not Keto Chow! The only flavors I didn’t love was the Chocolate (hubs loved the chocolate though) and Mocha. It just had some of that same after taste that I found amongst other brands of shakes that I personally dislike, nothing against Keto Chow, that’s just my taste buds. So far my favorite is Snickerdoodle, it was like drinking cookie dough. They really remind me of milkshakes!
I use HWC and water, filling the shaker up a majority of the way to keep it thinner (personal preference).
Going to try out a couple more flavors that are screaming at me and the soup flavors which I’m very much looking forward to after these samples.
I use these as lunch replacements at work. I don’t eat breakfast, drink the shake between 12:30-1 which fills me up and keeps me full until around six p.m. so it definitely is filling.
I’ve read that some people have a problem with it chunking up, I didn’t have this issue. My only mixing problem was the powder wanting to stick to the sides and in the crevices of the textured part of the shaker. I’d just have my hubs shake it for me if I couldn’t get it off the edge or just run a spoon along the sides, shake again and put in the fridge. It’s all mixed up great.

All in all, great flavor options, great taste, very filling and a great consistency.
Thanks Keto Chow for a delicious product.

Here’s another review, it should be noted that I publish all of the reviews that come in – bad or good – as they are, typos intact. The only ones I remove are spam posts from people wanting you to buy pills to “enhance performance” and such.

Mind blow!
Ok, how many of us have scrolled through Facebook and saw this add? Best add ever!
And thought yeah right, can’t be, no way,
Well be ready to have your mind blown.
I got the starter bundle bc for the price it’s amazing even to just try it out.
I’ve come back for seconds. Thirds even!
I fell in love with the strawberry, banana, Chocolate, caramel, oh who am I kidding I haven’t have one I don’t like yet!
I love it! And the price for just the singles if perfect since I really like the diversity it offers me. Maybe one day they will roll out with some smaller bags and I can get those stocked up as well.
I really hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
