The objective of a ketogenic diet is to enter a state of ketosis. Ideally you want to stay in ketosis and not cycle in and out.
To maintain ketosis, you’ll want to eliminate as much corn from your diet as possible.
In conclusion to the question – Is corn keto or is it bad for you?
The simple answer is no it is not keto, it is likely to spike your blood sugar and it is most likely genetically modified.
You can eat a portion of baby corn and be okay.
Similarly, with the question:
Are corn flakes okay on keto?
No, it is not keto-friendly.
One bowl of dry corn flakes has more than 20 grams of net carbohydrates, so your total daily allocation gone with breakfast.
They also have a high GI, so in all likelihood will spike blood sugar.
And if you are asking about all your Mexican favorites, sorry no. They are high in carbohydrates and highly processed.
And corn-based snacks?
No! They have too many carbs and are highly processed. They contain many ingredients you don’t want to eat on a keto diet.
Keto Stamp of Approval?
Corn is not keto approved.
Although it should occasionally be okay on a low carb diet.
