If you are in Amsterdam and you want to eat keto and low-carb, I have a guide that you’ll love.
Let’s dive in and talk about the keto-friendly products in Albert Heijn. If you are interested in a more general list of groceries, read my grocery list for the keto diet.
Albert Heijn has all the vegetables you need. Also, it has many smart veggies, like:
Koolraap (rutabaga) in tagliatelle and in fries shape
Cauliflower rice, ready to cook (and they sell it even frozen, from the brand Bonduelle)
Pumpkin slices is wonderful for preparing keto-lasagna

Remember that AH seeks also the pumpkin purée useful for cooking keto things in the pumpkin spice season!
Fish, meat, eggs
Unpopular opinion (or maybe not?). Supermarkets in the Netherlands are not the best regarding fresh fish and meat.
In the biggest AH, such as the XXL, you will find frozen fish that you buy in convenient baskets. The baskets are in 2 sizes and you can fill them up for a fixed price. I tried it, and I liked the quality.
In some AH you will find also an octopus!
Don’t forget shrimp, mackerel, trout, salmon, and canned fish (in water) such as tuna, sardines, and mackerel.
In AH you can buy steaks and several meat cuts. If you want to buy meatballs or burgers, check that they didn’t add sugar, potato flour, or something else that can be not keto-friendly. This is very common in every supermarket in Holland.
There are a lot of choices also in processed meat, lunch meat, bacon, and salami. They sell also small plastic boxes with cheese and salami blocks, salmon rolls, and so on.
If you like spreads, check out the pathé (available in salmon and tuna) from John West.
Cheese and dairy products
AH has a lot of choices regarding cheese. Read in this separate post my favorite cheese for the keto diet.
AH sells also Cheese pops, the best snack to crunch during a movie!
Slagroom, is the best thing closer to the heavy cream. I buy the thick one from Campina and a liquid one from de Zaanse Hoeve.
Clotted cream, can be used as heavy cream to use in coffee.
Yogurt: read the best keto yogurts in the Netherlands.
Butter I recommend the bio grass feed from Campina or Borderij Zuivel.
Ghee, from the brand Bio Today.
Choose the Almond milk with the best values: you can find easily 0 carbs milk from brands like AH, Provamel, and ALPRO.
Coconut milk is also a low-carb milk. I buy the one from Fairtrade Original or the one from AH. Both have 17 grams of fat and 2 net carbs for 100 ml.
The best Soya milk is from AH, with its 0,8 net carb and 2 grams of fat.
Another brand that is exclusive at AH is Plenish. 3 kinds of milk are available: Hazelnut milk (0,3 carbs), cashew milk (1,5 carbs), and almond milk (0,4 carbs). All the flavors are made with only 3 natural ingredients (nuts, sea salt, and water).
Butter and oils
Let’s talk about fats. They have all the kinds of oils. I recommend extra virgin olive oil because is one of the healthiest. In AH you will find also Ghee and MCT oil from the brand Bio Today.
They always have berries. Don’t forget the best fruit for a ketogenic diet, the avocado. And olives, which are full of healthy fats.
Nuts, nut butter and Seeds
Huge selection of nuts, that you’ll find in bags and in plastic boxes. They are perfect as snacks on the go.
From the AH brand, I like the 100% peanut and almond butter. Check always the labels and make sure the butter is 100% nuts.
Also for the seeds, we have a lot of choices. Pumpkin seeds, hemp seeds, chia seeds, flax seeds and have always the bio-version.

Dark chocolate (minimum 85%) is low-carb. The 2 best brands in AH are Handsoff and Lindt.
Notice: these options are not keto-friendly BUT, are very low in carbs.
In AH you can find these low-carb breads:
- Tasty Basic bread flaxseed, which has 7,5 carbs for 100 gr. That makes less than 4 net carbs for a slice.
