Which flavour is lowest in carbs?
Purition makes following a low-carb or keto diet easy-peasy. By choosing Purition for breakfast and/or lunch, you won’t need to spend as much time planning, prepping and cooking low-carb meals.
Thankfully, at around 2–4g net carbs per meal, all Purition flavours are low-carb and keto-friendly. The ingredients in each flavour are virtually the same, meaning there’s a minimal difference when it comes to the macros. They each contain our core blend of fresh nuts and seeds, plus whey or plant protein and a little extra fibre from psyllium husk and apple pectin. The only significant difference comes down to the natural flavourings.
But if you’re using Purition to support a strict low-carb or keto way of eating, you’re probably curious to know which Purition flavour is lowest in carbohydrates. After all, 2 or 3g carbs saved is 2 or 3g extra carbs for later!
Here’s some handy information to help you find the best Purition flavour to fit your low-carb or keto lifestyle:

Which milk and yogurt are best for a low-carb diet?
The carb count between various dairy and plant milks vary considerably, so what you choose to prepare your daily Purition with can make a significant difference to the total carb content per serving.
Generally speaking, oat and rice milk are high in carbohydrates, while unsweetened soy, coconut and almond milks come with a relatively low carb count. Bear in mind that the carbohydrate content of sweetened plant milks can be significantly higher than unsweetened/no sugar versions.
When it comes to yogurt, coconut and soy based yoghurts are typically the lowest in carbohydrates. Our favorite is coconut yogurt with a clean and short ingredients list!
It’s worth picking an unsweetened milk or yogurt, especially if you’re going to be using it daily.
Make sure to double-check the ingredients list too. It’s not uncommon for brands to include gums (thickeners) in their recipes, particularly if they’re opting for a longer shelf life.
Wherever possible, aim for the milks that keep their ingredients list clean and short.
Can I just mix Purition with water?
If you’re following a strict low-carb or keto lifestyle, you might prefer to skip milk and yoghurt altogether.
Honestly, Purition tastes much better when blended with milk – but if you’d prefer to go milk-free, we get it! Try out the following serving suggestions:
Make a shake with water: Blend 40g Purition with 175ml water, 3 ice cubes and some frozen berries. Avoid using too much water – it’ll end up very thin and watery. You could add a dash of cream, if your regime allows?
Make an instant low-carb porridge: Take 40–50g of Purition, add a splash of hot boiled water or warm milk (you’ll only need a dash, so the carb content will be minimal) and mix well. If you’d like a thinner porridge, add a little more water/milk until you hit that sweet spot. Finish by adding a light sprinkling of low-carb toppings, such as nuts, berries or desiccated coconut, if you’d like.
What are net carbs, anyway?
Net carbs is the number of carbohydrates in a food, minus its grams of fibre. It accounts for the fact that fibre isn’t fully digested by the body and has a minimal effect on blood sugar levels.
Net Carbs = Total Carbohydrates – Fibre
So, for example, if a UK ingredient deck read Carbs 3g and Fibre 6g, a US packet would read Total Carbs 9g and Net Carbs 3g. Purition’s nutritional information is based on Net Carbs.
