Oat Fiber.... not keto?

(KCKO, KCFO) #21

I have no idea, @KYZ was asking about using it in some recipes from a keto cookbook, and some one replied they used it :

I just made sugar free zucchini choc chip cookies using oat fiber as one of the ingredients.

Oat Fiber, Per 1 Tablespoon:

Calories 0
Total Fat 0g
Total Carbs 3 g
Dietary Fiber 3 g
Sugars 0
Protein 0

Net carbs, minus fiber: 0g


so sorry, saw this post from work and forgot to post when I got home… This is the biscuit recipe I use oat fiber in. They are really good fresh, but I’m not a huge fan of them leftover.

PS Oat fiber helps make an awesome pie crust. See video (recipe in description) here:

Since this post, I’ve been using Oat Fiber for my pancakes. It’s awesomeness! :heart_eyes:

I don’t know if it’s “keto” or not. It IS low carb. It’s pretty much low everything, except fiber. (Not to be confused with oat flour, two different things!) For the most part, oat fiber is about texture.

Purists may have a problem with it because it’s a grain. I say, if it’s not a problem for you, and if it helps you to enjoy some low carb foods that you wouldn’t get to otherwise, go for it. The keto police aren’t going to be blasting through your door to scold you.

I use a home made imitation Trim Healthy Mama baking blend. It makes for perfect pancakes, mug cakes and Dutch babies.

It is:
3/4 cup almond flour
1/4 coconut flour
1/4 cup flax meal
1/4 cup oat fiber
1 TBS baking powder

I use 2 heaping TBS with one egg and almond milk to desired consistency for pancakes.

1 cup baking blend and 1 cup almond flour with 6 eggs, 4 TBS cream cheese and almond milk plus 2 TBS swerve and 1 tsp baking powder with almond milk to desired consistency, topped with frozen berries, optionally almond slivers and powdered swerve for a European style torte that can be topped with whipped cream.

Oat fiber is fine in terms of carbohydrates but many people believe that any grain is counter to good health and oat products fall into that classification.

Oat fiber is derived from oats but it is not the same as using oats nor the same as using oat bran, it is completely different as it is the fiber without the other properties. It has a 0% glycemic index, 27.1 grams of carbs per oz but you subtract the 27.1 grams of fiber contained to get the end result of 0 net carbs. On keto it is not the base carbs it is the net carbs. Oat fiber IS KETO. I hope that helps to clarify the issue at hand.

Many people count all carbs including those that are fiber. The thinking is that some fiber is actually digest able or somewhat digestible so erring on the side of caution.

A bit of history ~ Dr. Eades (Protein Power) is the one who made the concept of netting out fiber popular and he has said he wished he had not because it is not really accurate.

Oat fiber is too expensive. Can I use phyllium husk instead ?

(Cathy) #30

Psyllium husk is very absorbent and will take up more liquid than oat fiber so I don’t think they are interchangeable.
