Hi! I created Ketology after struggling for years with hormonal changes and weight gain. As I got older, I found managing my weight and moods became more and more of a struggle. Within 3 months of switching to a ketogenic lifestyle tailored for my age, I not only shed 30 pounds of stubborn fat, but my mood improved, my focus sharpened and I have had nothing but positive effects! Learn more about my journey here.

I’m a huge fan of Costco and love that they stock some of my favorite keto must-haves to keep my kitchen stocked with keto-friendly foods. Lately, some “keto” labeled items has crept onto the shelves and have piqued my curiosity — namely keto bread. Depending on where you live, the Costco Keto Bread will either be made by Franz or Galasso. My California-based Costco recently started stocking the Galasso brand, so I scooped it up to give it a test run.

Now, I won’t go too much into the science of if this bread is truly keto and more importantly, if it’s a healthy option. Yes, it comes in a 1g net carbs per slice – so technically, it’s keto-friendly. Thomas DeLauer who brilliantly explains the science behind ketosis and many of the foods we eat dove into it on his YouTube page – so take a watch for the nitty gritty on why you may want to skip the Franz keto bread or Galasso keto bread. But I’m here to give you my thoughts on taste and performance.

I love avocado toast and cream cheese and salmon on toast, so those were the first recipes on my list to try with the Costco keto bread. The bread toasts well and “feels” like regular bread and holds up well, however even with creamy avocado or a nice layer of cream cheese, the bread itself has a powdery, chalky taste that isn’t easily masked with toppings. So then I decided to try to make a breakfast sandwich by placing the Galasso keto bread in my skillet with the cooking eggs (which is a great hack for making a french toast like texture) and I thought this method would allow the egg to soak into the bread and get rid of some of the chalkiness. Alas, no…it still had the unappealing texture issue. We continued to use the bread here and there since it comes in a two-pack, but will I buy it again? Likely not. I much prefer my homemade keto bread recipe which uses healthy ingredients and tastes great.

I have heard of the mythical Aldi keto bread which has gotten rave reviews however we don’t have Aldi’s nearby – let me know if you’ve tried any of the above and your thoughts in the comments below!
