If you’ve recently started the keto diet, you’re probably wondering what fruits you can consume to keep your net carbohydrates low. So today, we are talking about pineapple: Is Pineapple Keto? How many Carbs Are In Pineapple? and are there any pineapple substitutes?
Pineapple is delicious, low in calories, and full of nutrients and antioxidants. Nutrients and compounds have proven benefits in digestion, promote immunity, relieve arthritis symptoms, accelerate recovery after surgery, and stimulate skin regeneration, being very useful after intense physical exertion. It is very versatile and can be consumed in a variety of ways.
Pineapple has a juicy and fleshy texture with a fibrous supporting core located at its stem. The outside is firm, with tiny scales that can be dark green, yellow, orange-yellow, or red when the fruit is ripe. The flesh can vary in color from cream-white to yellow and has a mixture of sweet taste and rich aroma.
Pineapple is relatively high in net carbs and naturally occurring sugars. A serving (3.5oz) contains about 13 grams of carbohydrates and 9 grams of sugar. Therefore, pineapple is not keto-friendly if you’re following a strict approach where the daily carbohydrate intake is 20-50 grams per day.
