Breyers CarbSmart vs Rebel Creamery

Average Percent of Total Calories from Net Carbs
 

Breyers CarbSmart “frozen dairy dessert” (I guess they can’t legally call it ice cream) is not keto friendly at an average of 29% of total calories from net carbohydrates, and that’s without factoring in the hidden carbohydrates Maltitol or Sorbitol they have in every product.

Rebel Creamery ice cream has 7x less net carbs per calorie on average than Breyers CarbSmart, no hidden carbohydrates, and their first ingredient is cream (meaning they can legally call it ice cream, gasp!) It also happens to be the most delicious keto friendly ice cream I’ve tried. They’re really on to something special over there, and if you want keto friendly ice cream, I highly recommend Rebel Creamery ice cream.
