Is Bacon Keto?

Bacon is a useful ingredient in your low-carb diet. Like other meat, it is rich in protein and contains some fat.

However, unlike beef and chicken, it does contain some carbs that are due to the conservation process.

The net carbs in bacon amount to 1.4 grams of net carbs per 100 grams so it remains quite low.

Is Bacon Healthy?

Bacon is a meat that brings a lot of nutrients. One 100-gram serving of bacon brings:

  • 500-560 calories
  • 35-37 grams of protein
  • 1.4 grams of carbs
  • 0 grams of fiber
  • 40 grams of fat
  • 15% of Vitamin B6 daily value
  • 10% of Vitamin D daily value
  • 50% of Vitamin B12 daily value
  • 15% of Vitamin B3 daily value

However, the fats in bacon are high in cholesterol and saturated fat.

These can lead to blood circulation issues, so it’s essential to eat bacon in moderation.

Doctors recommend limiting red meat and processed meat (including bacon) to a combined 12 ounces to  17.5 ounces (350 grams to 500 grams) per week.
