The foodnetindia rating for this product:-
foodnetindia safety rating : 7 – (On a scale of 1 to 10 from very unsafe to very safe)
The product is a safe food for people on a ketogenic diet. But for people who are not on a ketogenic diet, as a high fat product, we would label it as an HFSS product and not consider it as safe for regular snacking. However, as the product is clearly marketed as a keto friendly snack, we do not consider such HFSS labelling necessary.
foodnetindia wholesomeness rating :8 – (On a scale of 1 to 10 from very unbalanced nutrition profile to excellent nutrition profile)
Ketofy Bhujia has a nutritious mix of seeds in it which is wholesome for those on a ketogenic diet.
