Keto On The Go
One of the biggest struggles of the ketogenic diet is the amount of preparation it takes to live on a high-fat, low-carb diet in a high-carb, low-fat world. Most people who practice a keto lifestyle are experienced cooks who can prepare tasty meals in bulk and have great meal routines. Unfortunately, even the most prepared face the realities of today’s fast-paced lifestyle.
A San Francisco-based nutrition startup, Ample Foods, recently announced the arrival of Ample K1, a liquid meal made with real food ingredients that is custom-designed for the keto diet. Ample K is comprised of 25 high-quality ingredients, including four different types of fiber and packs ten times the probiotic content of kombucha.
Ample K is appealing to a variety of different consumers due to its nature as soy-free, gluten-free, and non-GMO. The powdered drink mix contains no artificial sweeteners or flavors and is packaged in a BPA-free bottle. The drink comes in either 400- or 600-calorie portions.
“The ketogenic lifestyle can be daunting, so we wanted to make it super simple for people to live keto in a non-keto world,” said Connor Young, the CEO of Ample Foods. “There is no question a home-prepared meal is best, but Ample K is the next best thing. We made sure it’s packed with quality ingredients so you don’t have to compromise.”
The Ketogenic Diet’s Increasing Popularity
The popularity of the keto market is validated by Ample Foods’ startup, which launched after the most-funded nutrition Indiegogo campaign of all time. In its first year of operation, the company’s monthly sales grew by 700 percent.
The keto food market is significant and growing. Orian Research estimates the size of the global ketogenic food market at $5.07 billion and is forecasted to increase to $6.5 billion in the next five years2.
This increasing popularity is a testament to the ketogenic diet’s effectiveness as not only a weight-loss regimen, but also a long-term, healthy lifestyle. The diet found its origins in the 1920s as an effective treatment for epilepsy; over the past century research has continued to validate the diet’s ability to increase brain efficiency by up to 70 percent3, maintain long-term weight loss4, and decrease chronic inflammation5.
