Are frozen strawberries keto-friendly?
Yes, frozen strawberries can be considered keto-friendly due to their lower net carbohydrate content. A standard serving size of about one cup of unsweetened frozen strawberries contains roughly 13 grams of carbohydrates, which includes about 3 grams of fiber. If you subtract the fiber, that leaves you with 10 grams of net carbs. This works well within the daily allowance of net carbs on a standard ketogenic diet, which typically ranges from 20 to 50 grams per day.
Are frozen strawberries gluten-free?
Yes, frozen strawberries are naturally gluten-free. They contain no wheat, rye, barley, or any other grains which are known to contain gluten. However, do keep an eye on additives in certain packaged frozen strawberries as they may contain gluten-containing ingredients or may be processed in a facility with other gluten-containing foods. As always, it's best to check the labels, but plain frozen strawberries are inherently gluten free.
