Best low-carb beers in the Netherlands

Aug, 27, 2021

Discover which ones are the best low-carb beers available in the Netherlands. Yes, beer contains a lot of carbs and sugars, therefore is not the best drink for a low-carb or ketogenic diet.

But let’s face it, some days, there’s nothing better than a cold beer. And when the moment you’ll come, I want you ready to make the best choice you can and enjoy a glass of cold beer, without going over your daily carbs limit.

If you follow a simple low-carb diet, having a beer is not a big deal: you just cut the portion of carbs here and there, and you can have a well deserve blonde in the evening.

If you are following keto, you will want to think twice. Ketosis is not really going along with beer.

Will low-carb beer kick me out of ketosis?

Unfortunately, beer, even a low-carb option, will kick you out of ketosis. Beer is made with grains and therefore is against ketosis.

Read this interesting experiment, and decide if a beer is worth the ban from Ketoland.

Remember that you can still have wine, and keep your ketosis.

My choice, would be the Amstel Blond. Is the lowest in carbs, and I like light blonds so for me is perfect.
