Heart Of Palms

Hi there -


Can anyone tell me how Bulletproof Hearts of Palm are? I assume they are not in the green, but would they fall in yellow or red?


Thank you!

    Yeah it's pretty high in sugars, comparable to bananas but with much more potassium. I would say it's in the lower yellow zone.

  • I know this is an old topic but I just searched to find this answer. How is it high in sugar? It has more fiber than carbs. Net negative for keto folks. Looks pretty bulletproof to me.

  • what is the serving size?
    palm is known as the tree of life, and was probably eaten by humans for quite some time, paleo for sure.

  • @lehodge It's impossible for there to be more fiber than carbs.

    I suspect that the info above was from non-US food labelling, which does not list fibre beneath carbohydrates. It lists fibre separately as a main item.

    eg. "A UK nutrition information label, for low-fat yoghurt. A key difference from US labelling is that it always gives values for a set quantity (100 ml or - like here - 100 g), allowing easy comparison between products. Also, fibre is not considered a type of carbohydrate." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nutrition_facts_label

    Also, fibre/fiber is generally not considered as 4cals per gram, so I guess another reason to not list beneath carbs.

    fake it till you make it
