Keto Food Questions

Is sugar alcohol keto?

Some sugar alcohols are keto-friendly. Here is the chart for different sugar alcohols showing their effects on blood sugars.

Xylitol is a favorite for some people on keto because they say it doesn’t have an aftertaste. Xylitol and everything below it is going to be fine while on keto.

  • Maltodextrin - 110

  • Glucose - 100

  • Sucrose - 65

  • High-fructose corn syrup - 58

  • Honey - 50

  • Maltitol - 35

  • Xylitol - 12

  • Sorbitol - 9

  • Mannitol - 2

  • Erythritol - 1

  • Monk fruit - 0

  • Stevia - 0

Although high-fructose corn syrup has a lower glycemic number compared to maltodextrin, it can be even worse because it messes with your liver and causes insulin resistance. Avoid it at all costs!
