Answer: Most brands of apple cider vinegar are not keto, but you can sneak in a few if you have room in your daily carb limits.
Within the keto community, drinking apple cider vinegar is a popular way to reduce cravings for carbs. For those that don't enjoy the vinegar as a drink, apple cider vinegar gummies (commonly known as "ACV gummies") are a way to work apple cider vinegar into your diet as chewable candies.
Unfortunately, most brands of ACV gummies contain very little apple cider vinegar and a lot of sugar. Some brands have up to 5 g of sugar and only 500 mg of apple cider vinegar. In other words, each gummy gives you 10 times as much sugar as apple cider vinegar.
For keto dieters, there isn't much reason to choose ACV gummies over apple cider vinegar. If you take apple cider vinegar to suppress your carb cravings, it's obviously silly to eat it in conjunction with a bunch of sugar. That said, a few brands keep the carb count low, so if you find that ACV gummies aid your digestion and improve your health, you can fit in a few.
The brands that offer ACV gummies with 1 g or less of added sugar are:
|Brand||Net Carbs||Added Sugars|
|Dakota||2 g||1 g|
|Lunaki||3 g||<1 g|
|Goli||3.5 g||1 g|
|WellPath||4 g||2 g|
|Simple Wonders||5 g||5 g|
|Nutracure||5 g||5 g|
|Delightful||5 g||5 g|
|Ecco Pure||5 g||5 g|
|Vita Unity||5 g||5 g|
|Two Apples||6 g||6 g|
*Per 500 g of apple cider vinegar
