Ketogenic Bakery - Cakes and Desserts

The ketogenic diet shifts the main source of energy (in comparison to “nowadays’ nutrition”) away from carbohydrates towards fats. So the main energy is drawn from fatty acids – and your body’s fat reserves – rather than from the strongly reduced amount of carbs. LOCABA desserts support ketogenic nutrition.

Ketosis: Burning Fats Instead of Carbs

Our metabolism converts carbs into glucose. Reducing carbs means a shortage of glucose sooner or later. When glucose is no longer available, the liver starts to produce ketone bodies. In order to achieve that, the liver converts fats into fatty acids and then to ketone bodies. Ketone bodies now serve as a source of energy.

To put it in a nutshell: During a ketogenic diet the metabolism is reprogrammed and starts burning fat reserves instead of carbs. As long as carbs are available, the body always chooses carbs over fat as they are the more comfortable source of energy. So the body will keep a fat reserve.

The daily amount of fats consumed should be at least twice as high as the total carbohydrate and protein content. In the course a ketogenic diet, no more than 50 grams of carbohydrates may be consumed daily in order to get into the state of “ketosis”. This includes, of course, any cakes or desserts consumed. (See our FAQ section.)

If you want to follow a ketogenic diet, your nutrition ideally has this distribution of nutrients: Only 5% carbs, 35% proteins and 60% fats.

LOCABA and Keto

LOCABA low carb and diabetic friendly cakes and desserts are so strongly carbohydrate-reduced straight out of our Singapore bakery that you could call them ketogenic by nature. They are the sweet perfect match for a ketogenic diet.

So if you are into keto nutrition and an active person – LOCABA desserts are also the healthy custom birthday cakes for you!

Diets like paleo or keto are controversial among experts. It happens that LOCABA desserts can perfectly go together with theses said diets, although our bakery’s core philosophy is to produce desserts without household sugar and to keep our desserts low-carb and diabetic-friendly.
