Welcome back to my blog for another keto product review! Today, we’re taking a look at one of my absolute favorite comfort foods turned keto – BUTTERY BISCUITS. I first noticed Low Karb on Instagram and I reached out to see if they would like a product review.
They allowed me to select the item I would review, and there are so many options! Low Karb produces muffin mixes, biscuit mixes, sweeteners, granolas, brownies, and glazed nuts. There were so many options. I picked the one that was most unlike any other keto product I’ve tried, though. I feel like biscuits are a true test of keto recipe concoction, so I was incredibly eager to try these.
Now, I’ve heard of other low carb biscuit mixes before (think: CarbQuik) but I’ve never seen a butter flavored mix. My keto friend (Sarah) and I decided we wanted to make keto gravy to go with these, and boy was that a good idea.
Who is Low Karb?
From their website:
Low Karb was founded on the idea that you shouldn’t have to give up everything you love about food just to go on the keto diet.
All of us at the company have or are currently on the keto diet. We’re more than just afficionados, we’re practitioners.
At Low Karb it’s easy to be Proudly Keto.
Something absent from the Low Karb website, which we’ve seen with a lot of other companies, is any sort of story about their founder or their team. I think there’s definitely room for improvement here. They don’t share much about their team (at least in the way of photos, and if they do, it isn’t obvious) on their Instagram. I love learning about the people behind my favorite companies, so I hope they add some of this information to either their website or socials soon!
I’m also having a hard time finding a company address and/or phone number on the website. The contact page includes a contact form, which may be helpful for low-priority inquiries. Higher-priority inquiries may wish to call for questions and a phone number would be a nice addition here.
What are Low Karb Butter Biscuits
From the Butter Biscuits shop page:
Fluffy, Mouth Watering Keto Biscuits
Only 2g Net Carbs per Biscuit
Quick and Easy – (Add 3 oz of water & heavy cream – mix – bake) then enjoy!
There isn’t a really long product description here, which is sort of nice. The images help the product speak for itself, honestly.
- Carbalose flour (enzyme enriched wheat, vital wheat gluten, wheat fiber, high-protein patent wheat flour, soy fiber, canola oil, salt, dextrose, emulsifiers, enzymes, ascorbic acid, sucralose, calcium propionate)
- Palm and palm-kernel oil
- Buttermilk powder
- Baking powder
- Egg white powder
- Natural flavors
If you’re looking for a wheat-free product, obviously this isn’t the one. BUT if you’re looking for a low net carb alternative (2 net carbs per biscuit) to a high carb favorite, these are the ones you’re looking for. It should also be noted that each biscuit has 11g dietary fiber… it goes without saying that you shouldn’t eat more than two if you don’t want to have a bad time in the bathroom. But the fiber also makes these incredibly filling, so I’m not sure you’ll be able to eat more than two without ending up super full.
Overall, the baking experience was lovely, but there were a couple of discrepancies I noticed with the instructions. First, I think the recipe is better divided into 12 biscuits rather than 10. We divided to 12 and still had massive biscuits, and probably could have further pared them down to make 15 or 16 pillsbury-style biscuits.
Next, the actual packaging didn’t label an ingredients list for other items you would need to bake. These items are mentioned in the instructions itself, which of course everyone should end up reading through as they bake the biscuits. But if you’re making a grocery list, it would be more helpful to see those items at a glance on the back of the package.
These biscuits had an absolutely beautiful bake. The timing on the package was right on par with how they actually baked, even with the decrease in size (because we made more muffins which were smaller).
These are just incredible. I could not improve them if I tried. You truly have to taste them for yourself to understand.
These may be a little hard to come by, as they’re for sale only through the Low Karb website and Amazon.
You absolutely do not need to buy a mix to make some basic keto biscuits, but if you’re looking for a great dupe for the real thing, these are the ones. These could fool a carb eater IMO. I’m giving these 5 necessity points because these could keep someone edging toward a cheat meal from going off plan. They’re that good.
At $12.99 per bag, these are definitely an investment piece. I wouldn’t buy these very often because of the price tag. If they were closer to the $7 price point (which would put each biscuit at well under $1/each), I would rate this section higher. I would likely go to Amazon first to purchase since the shipping is free there, but if you order over $29 worth of product (at the time of this review), they offer free shipping there as well.
Really, really good quality on the ingredients involved here. The only item I wish was swapped for something else is the palm and palm kernel oil. Palm oil has a huge environmental impact. If this could be swapped for another oil, or even for sustainably produced palm oil, I’d give this a 10/10.
Super cute packaging and consistent across all items, but the website could definitely use some improvement in the area of a company history, accolades, and contact information. Also, even though the branding on the package was super cute, it got in the way of the bag’s functionality since the ingredients needed for the mix weren’t clearly listed anywhere aside from the working instructions.
Bottom line: 7/10 Recommend
