Criteria for Inclusion in KetoDB

In order for a product to be listed in the database, it must meet the following criteria

  1. The product must be a Consumer Packaged Good with a Nutrition Facts label since we must be able to verify that the product meets nutritional definitions of the ketogenic diet.
  2. The product must have no more than 20g of net carbs per serving since ketoers typically aim for 20g per day.
  3. The net carbs cannot be responsible for more than 5%* of the total calories per serving, since the ketogenic nutritional macros are ~ 5% carbohydrate – 65% fat – 30% protein.

Note: The initial seed of products for this database relied on consumer-provided nutritional information about the products and is therefore prone to error. If you come across a product in the database that you suspect may not actually be keto-friendly, please report it to me so that I can investigate it further.

*exceptions are made when the product is very low calorie and low-carb.

If I am missing a keto-friendly food that you enjoy, submit it to me for inclusion in the database.


When first starting a ketogenic diet, I had a hard time discovering new foods because I was an impatient shopper and preferred not to stand in the grocery aisles calculating nutritional macros in hopes of finding something I wanted to eat. I also became frustrated with shopping for foods online because there was no way to search by nutritional values at websites like Amazon. And while online communities like /r/keto are great for hearing about new products and recipes for the keto lifestyle, finding that information again at a later date is near impossible.

Ketodb was born in an attempt to solve all of these problems.

  • Ketodb contains only foods that adhere to the definition of a ketogenic diet, taking the guess work out of grocery shopping.
  • Ketodb is a searchable database and all products have been categorized for easy browsing, making it easy to look for new foods and expand your keto menu.
  • Ketodb indicates when products are available to order online, simplifying your access to a wider variety of foods than is available at local stores.
  • Ketodb allows users to rate and review products, saving you money by establishing which products are worth purchasing and which to stay away from.
