Ketofy Diet Dosa Mix contains almond, dehydrated cheese, coconut fibre, flax seeds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, watermelon seeds, vigna mungo, xantham gum, erythritol, rock salt.
The product is a low carbohydrate, high fat, moderate protein snack. Such foods are a good fit for people on a ketogenic diet and who are in a state of ketosis.
However, high fat consumption does not work the same way for people who are not in ketosis and who are not on a ketogenic diet. A diet high in both carbohydrates and fat is quite damaging and can accelerate obesity and therefore lifestyle diseases.
Erythritol is a sugar alcohol food additive, its known side effects for regular use of erythritol are stomach rumbling, nausea, and diarrhea in higher doses of over 50 gm.
The high salt content of 0.68 gm salt or 275 mg sodium in this product makes it unsafe for those with hypertension and lifestyle diseases. High sodium diets have been known to be the cause of high blood pressure, heart disease, etc. The recommended daily intake of salt is between 1-3 grams. The pack mentions 3 ways to make the batter with Ketofy Dosa Mix, and all three mention a step where the customer is told to add more salt, which makes the total salt intake go higher. However, this does not pose a safety issue for people on ketogenic diets as they usually need to consume a higher amount of salt and electrolytes.
The method 2 and 3 entail adding 50 gm egg and cheese respectively and frying in edible oil, which makes the overall fat content and protein content of the product go up more. Clearly if you’re not in ketosis, you should stay away from this product.
