TLDR: Definitely immediately improves measurable symptoms of ketosis, but terrible taste and only 15 days of product if you take the recommended 1 serving/day.
High level facts about Perfect Keto’s Base chocolate flavor:
- Each serving has 11.38g of beta-hydroxybutyrates salts (ketones) in it
- 1 full scoop is 1.5 tbsps, making each bin only 15 days of servings if used as directed
- Good for: getting back in to ketosis or getting in to ketosis in the first place. Can be used with other keto diet products or Perfect Keto products
- Vegan, organic and non-GMO
- No caffeine
- Can be used up to 3/day…making it a 5(?!) day container
- Perfect Keto’s BHB exogenous ketones are one of the top 10 most popular Amazon keto products
To start, we mixed it with unsweetened vanilla almond milk.
Jackie: UGH. The first thing that hits me is how artificial it tastes, it’s almost difficult to stomach. I was hoping it would be more like Optimum Nutrition’s Chocolate Whey but this has an almost acrid, yet sour sweetness to it. It’s sickly sweet but more akin to salty stevia candy than chocolate. The flavor is really confusing, and was all around not pleasing.
Ray: Horrendous. BLEGH. But that’s a known thing – BHB supplements are known to not have the best taste…
The texture of Perfect Keto’s BHB exogenous ketones was a-okay. It was mixable by hand with some vigorous fork swirling but was effortlessly blended in a bullet blender and shaker. Even when chunks remained, they were not noticeable when drinking it. No issues here.
We almost gave up on Petfect Keto’s exogenous ketones until we saw this enticing review in Amazon’s review gallery…
Did you read that clearly? He claims it raised his blood mmol 3x in roughly an hour. Lucky me, I had had a particularly bad food day last night with 3 too many glasses of wine, and my blood mmol was the lowest it’s been in weeks. With this new-found optimism I stomached down a full serving at around 5:30PM and patiently awaited the results. And then…
Keto efficacy of Perfect Keto’s base
|Keyto level||3 (almost ketosis)||5 (solidly in keto)|
Using our Precision Xtra Blood Ketone Monitoring Meter Kit and our Keyto device, we also saw a similar trajectory to the Amazon review above. So are BHB salts good? Maybe. I did notice an immediate feeling of satiety which I often do with keto supplements.
But the taste is so horrendous that I’m not sure if I’m truly full, or if my taste buds are simply offended and defeated. But regardless of the taste, it seems to get you “back in to ketosis“, alright.
|MSRP||$56.04 for 6.8oz|
|Servings per container||15|
|Cost per serving||$3.74|
|Daily cost (1 serving/day)||$3.74|
Perfect Keto’s exogenous ketones / BHB supplement seems like a poor value to us. It might help with facilitating ketosis – but a daily fee would range from $3.74 /day to $11.22/day if you used it every day, one to three times a day.
Overall, it definitely seems to work but it is horrendous. Simply horrendous. I’d rather intermittent fast than keep consuming this. It’s also quite expensive at almost $4 a day, but if immediate positive feedback is your thing, Perfect Keto’s Exogenous Ketones base in chocolate will probably do it for ya. On the positive side, it did improve my satiety and mental focus, so for that we’ll give them a 3/5.
