[Updated 5/20/22] I've been living the Ketogenic lifestyle for over 3 years now. In my 40+ years of life, it's been the single most important and best decision I've made with regard to my health. I love living the Keto life for more reasons than I can share. And yet, I admit there are times when I miss the taste and texture of certain carbs….like bread and certain snacks. I imagine many others who are living the Keto lifestyle know exactly what I mean. Fortunately, there are many companies out there each looking to produce the best keto bread and snacks on the market. In this article, we take a look at Thin Slim Foods to see how well it delivers on the promise of a low carb but high flavor experience.
For those who may not know, the Ketogenic diet is a low carb / high fat (LCHF) diet that puts the body in a natural state of Ketosis. While in this state, the body switches its fuel source from glucose (carbs, sugars) to fat. When fat is burned little packets of energy are produced called Ketones which serve as a very efficient source of energy. There are many documented health benefits to being in Ketosis that I've personally experienced and yet everyone should consult their doctor before making the decision to do so.
As I mentioned, one of the biggest challenges of the Keto diet is finding alternatives to carb-heavy foods like bread, pasta, and rice. I've tried a number of keto bread recipes including the 90 second keto bread recipe and they were surprisingly good. However, I found myself short on time when it came to preparing them. I wanted a simpler and more consistent solution and so I turned to premade Keto bread and snacks.
Before getting into this Thin Slim Foods review, there are a few basic company facts worth mentioning. In an era when certain health food brands seem to just make up nutritional information, it's refreshing to hear that Thin Slim Foods lab tests all of their permanent products. I can't stress how important this is especially since the keto lifestyle requires being precise with your carb count. The company also offers a taste guarantee, something particularly uncommon with the keto snack and keto bread world. The first is a taste guarantee which is in my experience is almost unheard of in this industry. If you don't like how something tastes, just let them know and they'll give you refund on up to 1 of each flavor/type of product. Because they use high-end ingredients, the company is also able to guarantee that their foods will NOT trigger a blood sugar spike.

Best Keto Bread
I enjoyed a fantastic bacon, eggs, and TOAST breakfast. The toast was delicious and I admit part of me felt like this was too good to be true. I braced for any potential sugar spikes or food comas but there were absolutely none.
They've done an phenomenal job with creating both the flavor AND texture of real bread. Their sliced bread had all the chewy texture that I had been longing for. It's ever so slightly less dense than regular bread but not by much. In my experience, low carb bread can sometimes be dry and little flaky. Fortunately, this bread offered a superb texture that was perfect for my tastes.
I sat there and just smiled while enjoying the simple but transcendent experience of tasting “bread” for the first time in a long time. I could literally go into a long artsy fartsy description of what it tasted like but for this Thin Slim review, I'll keep it simple. This is the best keto bread I've had to date. And when I use the term “best” I'm referring to its full spectrum of texture, flavor, and quality of ingredients. As the saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words. Check out the image below for a closeup on this low-carb bread to better appreciate its texture. Keto practitioners will not be disappointed.
Best Keto Sweets
The sampler pack also included keto sweets such as brownies, blueberry muffins, and pumpkin flavored muffins. As mentioned above, these are sweetened with erythritol and contain only 2g of net carbs. After tasting each one, I was just as impressed with the keto pastries as I was with the keto breads.
Let's first start with the brownies. These keto brownies have a sweetness that can be best described as mild and refined which is actually what I'd prefer. Being on Keto for over year has really changed my gauge of sweetness. Things that you used to be not sweet enough prior to Keto are way too sweet for me now. The sweetness levels of this keto brownie were perfect for me. Additionally, Thin Slim keto brownies have a balanced texture with just the right amount of fluffiness and chewiness. The image above helps illustrate this point. I love the fact that it doesn't just fall apart like other sugar-free brownies.
After finishing the brownie, I had a chance to try their blue berry muffin which I found to be very full of flavor. I'd say the muffin was sweeter than the brownie with a comparable texture.
This low-carb brownie and muffin was a treat to my senses.
Anyone reading this Thin Slim Foods review can probably already tell that I was very impressed with their offerings. Their keto bread and sweets delivered a very full and natural taste that everyone on Keto will appreciate. The company also impressed me with their sheer number of options. From low-carb pizza crust and gourmet muffins to low-carb dressing and croutons, this company has done a great job positioning themselves as a one stop shop for the best Keto bread and snacks.
Final thoughts: Thin Slim Foods Review
In closing, the keto food industry is a fiercely competitive arena. It typically appeals to a results-driven audience that's educated in matters of health and food. In other words, a Keto company had better know their stuff if they have hopes of succeeding in this industry. Having tasted their keto food products for myself, I now understand why this company has flourished in this industry and garnered such a loyal following of customers. The company's low-carb products are proof positive that even if you're on Keto, you can still have your “cake and eat it too”. I can confidentially recommend Thin Slim Foods as a quality and “tasty” source of Keto-friendly products.
