The keto diet is a low carb, high fat eating plan that has been linked to weight loss and lower risks of diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Unfortunately, its strictness can make it difficult for Singaporeans to follow this regimen since many local dishes are high in carbohydrates like rice, noodles and bread.
The ketogenic diet, which is high in fat but low in carbohydrates, has become a go-to for health-conscious Singaporeans. Unlike previous yo-yo diets that caused weight gain or diabetes, this one prevents insulin spikes which could otherwise lead to insulin resistance and diabetes.
With the growing popularity of the ketogenic diet, more and more cafes have begun offering menu items tailored towards this dietary approach. One such establishment is Seriously Keto, which offers an extensive selection of sweet and savoury keto products ranging from breads to snacks.
Since February 2017, this online bakery has become a go-to for those trying to avoid sugar and carbohydrates. Owner Janti Joso Brasali is an accomplished home baker who discovered how easy it was to make keto-friendly treats without using refined flour.
Recently, Seah Street welcomed back this delightful retail and dine-in space that offers more than just delicious treats from its online store. The 18-seater establishment features an inviting retail area as well as a cozy seating area to savor all of the healthy options available on-site.
