We make keto cheese puffs that are the ideal anytime, anywhere low-carb snack.
Great tasting, crunchy and nutritious. They’re the ideal snack for school, work, home or when you’re watching a movie.
Ingredients in our keto cheese puffs
Unlike many crunchy, ready-made snacks, our keto cheese puffs contain just one ingredient – Gouda cheese.
A special process extracts moisture from the Gouda cheese, creating a light and crunchy low-carb, keto-friendly snack.
A healthy alternative to Cheetos and Wotsits
Consider how our keto cheese puffs compare to two of Singapore’s other popular cheesy snacks – Cheetos Crunchy Flamin’ Hot Cheese-flavored Snacks and Walkers Baked Really Cheesy Flavour Corn Puffs.
Cheetos and Wotsits both contain highly processed, high-carb, nutritionally empty ingredients. These include unhealthy oils, colourings and flavourings.
To say it again – the only ingredient in our keto cheese puffs is Gouda cheese.
Compare the ingredients of each snack.
Keto Cheese Puffs ingredients: Gouda Cheese (Milk, Calcium Chloride, Sodium Nitrate, Sodium Chloride, Starter Culture, Microbiol Rennet, Annatto).
1 g of carbohydrates per 20 g packet.
Cheetos Crunchy Flamin’ Hot Cheese ingredients: Enriched Corn Meal (Corn Meal, Ferrous Sulfate, Niacin, Thiamin Mononitrate, Riboflavin, Folic Acid), Vegetable Oil (Corn, Canola, and/or Sunflower Oil), Flamin’ Hot Seasoning (Maltodextrin [Made from Corn], Salt, Sugar, Monosodium Glutamate, Yeast Extract, Citric Acid, Artificial Color [Red 40 Lake, Yellow 6 Lake, Yellow 6, Yellow 5], Sunflower Oil, Cheddar Cheese [Milk, Cheese Cultures, Salt, Enzymes], Onion Powder, Whey, Whey Protein Concentrate, Garlic Powder, Natural Flavor, Buttermilk, Sodium Diacetate, Disodium Inosinate, Disodium Guanylate), and Salt.
15 g of carbohydrates per 28 g packet.
Walkers Baked Wotsits Really Cheesy Flavour Corn Puffs: Maize, Rapeseed Oil, Cheese Flavour [Dried Cheese (from Milk) (7%), Milk Lactose, Flavour Enhancer (Disodium 5’-Ribonucleotide), Acid (Lactic Acid), Colours (Paprika Extract, Annatto), Natural Flavouring, Salt, Potassium Chloride].
12.6 g of carbohydrates per 22.5 g packet.
These are just a few of the ingredients in Cheetos and Wotsits that are best avoided:
- unhealthy oils, such as corn, canola, palm, soybean, grapeseed, peanut, sunflower and safflower oil
- food colourings – Yellow 6 in particular, which is banned in some countries because of concerns that it’s carcinogenic, allergenic and can cause hyperactivity in children
- maltodextrin, which has a high glycaemic index and causes a spike in blood-sugar levels
- highly processed, high-carb grains, such as corn and maize.
Add a little spice
Of course, many Singaporeans enjoy a little spice with their cheese snacks. This explains the popularity of snacks like the Flamin’ Hot Cheese Cheetos in Singapore.
Our keto cheese puffs don’t have added spice. This makes them suitable for anyone, including children.
That said, we like adding a sprinkling of chilli powder or paprika. Or, now and again, consider dunking the cheese puffs in a chilli dip.
Junk food on a keto diet
We all know it’s ideal to eat healthy, nutritious food whenever possible.
But snacks, and so-called “junk food”, are part of our fast-paced, modern lives.
They provide energy in the middle of the day, after exercise, between meals or when we’re on the move and don’t have time to sit down for a meal.
A healthy snack between meals can decrease hunger and keep us from overeating at meal time.
You don’t have to be eating keto to want to eat healthy snacks.
The good news is that BenBanter keto cheese puffs have the same appeal as other popular, crunchy cheese snacks but without any of the actual junk – like sugar, refined carbs, high salt, unhealthy oils, additives and food colourings.
