You may have seen some of your keto pals eating SuperFat pouches, or maybe you stumbled on their website. If you’re wondering whether to buy, here’s some key information on the product, along with pros & cons!
Helpful Product Information
SuperFat pouches come in five standard flavors – plus there is currently one limited edition flavor. They range from 20 to 31 grams of fat per pouch, with 3 to 5 grams of net carbs each. And while you might notice a gram or two of sugar on the label, note that this is not added sugar; it’s simply the naturally occurring sugar in the plant-based ingredients.
Overall Pros and Cons
Like any food product, there are pros and cons to using these. Here’s a quick breakdown of my thoughts…
- Easy grab-and-go snack. We’re getting luckier these days that there are more keto-friendly grab-and-go snacks, but it can be tough to find ones that are sufficiently high in fueling fats. I love these little pouches because they pack in a ton of healthy fat.
- Sweetened varieties use erythritol and stevia. Using two different sweeteners in the sweetened pouches generally helps minimize any of the downsides of one. For example, some people find stevia has an odd aftertaste, while others dislike the cooling sensation of erythritol. Since SuperFat uses a blend, it helps prevent any one sweetener from being in a high enough amount to cause those unwanted aspects (at least for us – we didn’t notice any!).
- Vegan-friendly. We’re not personally vegan, but if any of y’all are trying to do more vegan meals (or are going full vegan keto – which is hard!) – then this is a great option for you. Many keto meals and snacks have an animal product so it’s nice to see a vegan option too.
- Some flavors contain MCT Oil. MCT stands for medium chain triglycerides. Their shorter chain length (i.e. “medium” compared to other “long chain” fats) means that they are digested differently, and offers a quick source of energy for those in ketosis. These fats also promote satiety, helping you stay full longer! (Just don’t overdo products with MCT if you’re new to them – they can cause some stomach upset if you eat a lot).
- Available online and shelf stable. I know right now in light of everything going on, many of us are trying to avoid going out to the store and following orders to stay home. These snacks are easy to order online and shelf stable, making them a great option to stock up on.
- Need to knead. So this really isn’t much of a con as much as it is a heads up. Some of the flavors do require a bit of kneading before snacking. It’s nothing that takes more than a minute or two. But just remember to do it first so you don’t pop it open and get a mouthful of the oil that tends to settle at the top. That said, the fact that this happens is a testament to the fact that there’s limited clean ingredients in these pouches – there’s no stabilizer added like you might find in other commercial nut butters.
- *PS – Quick hack – if you knead it but some seems to get stuck at the bottom of the pouch (only happened to me once so far), just tear open the pouch and dig in with a spoon, haha.
- Moderate cost. I don’t personally think these are expensive – they run around $3-4 each depending on your order size, which I think can be reasonable for a tasty treat. However, if you’re on a tight budget, that might prove to be a challenge. In that case, we recommend that you sign up for the SuperFat email list – they send out special deals and you can stock up when there’s a sale!
Here’s a breakdown of each flavor:
If you’re debating which flavor to buy, here’s a quick overview of all the nutrition facts and a few notes about each, all in one place!
1) Macadamia Coconut
Nutrition facts: 270 calories, 27 g fat, 8 g carbohydrate, 5 g fiber, 2 g sugar, *3 g net carbs*, 6 g protein
Macadamia nut butter is already super creamy and rich, so combined with coconut butter, this one is crazy good. It was also ties for the lowest in net carbs of all the pouches.
2) Cacao Coconut
Nutrition facts: 240 calories, 22 g fat, 12 g carbohydrate, 6 g fiber, 2 g sugar, 3 g sugar alcohol, *3 g net carbs*, 5 g protein
Ohhhh man, this stuff tastes like brownie batter. If you love a good chocolate fix, you’ll definitely want to pack this in your gym bag or purse for when that craving strikes. Plus, only 3 grams net carbs per pouch makes it very reasonable for a keto-friendly dessert!
3) Macadamia MCT + Probiotics
Nutrition facts: 300 calories, 31 g fat, 7 g carbohydrate, 4 g fiber, 2 g sugar, *3 g net carbs*, 3 g protein
My wife and I loved the potential functional benefits of this one. It contains a specific line of probiotics that is supposed to be very stable through manufacturing, so that it can become active when it hits the intestines. Probiotics may help support gut health and actually might be involved in overall immune health, so this definitely seemed like a cool ingredient to include. For example, the specific brand of probiotic used was found in research to help reduce upper respiratory tract infection symptoms and certain gastrointestinal systems in children – which was neat to read about.
4) Coffee + MCT
Nutrition facts: 240 calories, 20 grams fat, 11 grams carbohydrate, 5 grams fiber, 2 grams sugar, 1 gram sugar alcohol, *5 grams net carbs*, 8 grams protein
This was my wife’s favorite option, thanks to its strong coffee flavor. I’m not personally a big coffee-flavored-treats kinda person, but she absolutely loved it. She made a mug brownie and swirled this stuff on top and I’m pretty sure she was in chocolatey mocha heaven.
Nutrition facts: 240 calories, 21 g fat, 10 g carbohydrate, 5 g fiber, 2 g sugar, 1 g sugar alcohol, *4 g net carbs*, 9 g protein
This squeezable pouch has a higher amount of protein than the others thanks to the addition of sunflower protein (which keeps them vegan). I see these protein ones as great options during a weekend hike!
6) Cacao Mint (limited edition)
Nutrition facts: 230 calories, 20 g fat, 13 g carbohydrate, 6 g fiber, 2 g sugar, 3 g sugar alcohol, *4 g net carbs*, 5 g protein
I didn’t get a chance to try this limited edition one, though I’m not personally a fan of mint in my chocolate. (I know, controversial opinion, haha.) If you do like that combo though, I imagine this would be a big hit for you!
