Sake and Keto Diet - Is It Keto-Friendly
Is Sake Keto?
A standard Keto Diet recommends a daily net carb intake of between 20g-30g per day (for 2000 calorie diet).
Sake has a high amount of net carbs: 8.5g per serving. This number of net carbs makes sake unsuitable for a Keto Diet .
Nevertheless, the content of net carbs in sake is lower than in beer, which gives about 12 grams of net carbs per serving.
One serving size of sake (6oz or 170g grams) provides:
Protein: 0.85 grams
Fat: 0 grams
Total carbs: 8.5 grams, all are net carbs
Sake has 5g of net carbs per 100g and 8.5g of net carbs per serving (6 oz) accordingly.
By the net carbs, sake couldn't be considered keto-friendly (8.5g of net carbs per serving size- 6 oz ), as three servings of it may potentially kick you out of ketosis (in the case of 2000 calorie diet).
However you can drink a small glass, but more significant portions such as a mug are better to avoid.
