Products We Love: KNOW Foods

KNOW foods
Saying yes to cookies & bread usually means saying yes to carbs & added sugars. Not with KNOW™ Foods! This line of natural, non-GMO products are full of taste but free of: ✘ Gluten ✘ Grains & Wheat ✘ Dairy ✘ Soy ✘ Peanuts ✘ Preservatives ✘ Added sugars

The Ingredients

So what are they made of? KNOW™ products are packed with SUPER FOODS 🌟 chia, flax, coconut, almonds & egg whites. The sweeter items have their own secret sauce: Allulose. Maybe you've heard of it, maybe you haven't. Either way, you should know how incredibly awesome it is: it's all-natural (think: comes from figs, raisins) and is absolutely, unbelievably, incredibly awesome for blood sugar stability, which we totally noticed. KNOW foods KNOW™ Foods are preservative-free & must be kept cool 😎 Pop your breads & other goodies in the fridge or freezer.

The Glycemic Index

The glycemic index (GI) measures how quickly and to what degree a carbohydrate-containing food raises blood glucose (BG). People with diabetes should pack their diet with low GI foods (55 or less). Unlike conventional breads and snacks, KNOW™ Foods is low GI. Even their bread is <10. That's a lower GI than asparagus!

The Verdict

Great! KNOW™ Foods won't spike blood sugar... but how do they taste? We put our One Drop taste buds to the test — they were not disappointed! There are a TON of products to choose from! We tried everything from KNOW™ Foods buns & breadsticks to cookies & doughnuts. The following were some of our favorites:

Crepes

These chocolate crepes were delicious! We quickly heated them in a pan and topped with low-carb feta cheese. Drizzled with peanut butter, then added almonds for fiber & crunch. KNOW foods

Waffles

What better way to start your morning than with waffles? The chocolate chip variety are high in protein (12 grams!) and pair deliciously with tangy Greek yogurt .

"Belgian style waffles without the guilt. Awesome!"

- Kai P.

Chocolate Chip Cookie

Our resident cookie expert, Mary Elizabeth, was skeptical of these ginormous cookies. Each cookie is individually packaged and weighs in at 1/3 of a pound and 48g carbs! The net carbs, though, are much lower: 4g per cookie! Additionally, that oh-so-special sweetener Allulose basically equates the sugar value to null. This cookie is pure magic 🙌

"My One Drop | Chrome read 160 mg/dL before I started eating. I gave myself 2.8 units of insulin and waited 20 minutes. It took me an hour to eat the cookie. To my surprise, my final BG was 107 mg/dL ... and dropping! KNOW™ Foods really is low GI!"

- Mary Elizabeth

Low impact, filling and full of fiber & flavor. These cookies are a One Drop favorite 🍪 KNOW foods

Cupcakes

Double chocolate means doubly delicious. These cupcakes are super moist! Pair perfectly with a cold glass of almond milk or mix into guilt-free ice cream.

Not a fan of sweets?

We also give KNOW™ Foods wraps and and thins two thumbs up.

"These wraps are so good — and only 100 calories! I put shredded chicken and veggies in mine. Cheese quesadillas are next!"

- Jenn S.

KNOW foods

"I love the herb flavor! The thins are super crunchy and sturdy enough to scoop up hummus."

- Andrea
