Food products and services cater to ketogenic dietary restrictions
Although the number of global youth aged 14-34 who have participated in the ketogenic diet is less than one in 10, as found in our Global Culture Forecast, young people around the world are very open to experimentation with food and beverages. Greater access to viable products—such as these keto-approved foods—could lead to higher adoption, whether it’s short- or long-term.
For $35/month, Keto Krate delivers a ketogenic diet-approved snack box to consumers’ doors. In addition to a mix of eight snack items such as bacon, pickles, cheese puffs, and sugar-free cookies, each box also includes at least $20 worth of coupons on additional keto food. Each snack item contains less than five grams of net carbs to adhere to the diet’s restrictions, and the selected snacks are also gluten-free. Keto Krate has more than 8,600 subscribers.
Artificial intelligence is infiltrating every part of life, including food.

The service delivers a week’s worth of groceries, making 14 meals, starting at $5/meal. In addition to offering healthy options to consumers, FixeFood is also focused on lessening the amount of food waste caused by unused ingredients by utilizing its algorithm to supply users with the specific ingredients needed.
More than half of young people in the U.S. are interested in meal replacement products that provide optimal complete nutrition, and Soylent isn’t he only option on the market anymore. Sated, a ready-to-drink keto meal replacement shake hit its $10,800 Kickstarter goal in a matter of hours. The vanilla-flavored beverage is made of milk protein isolate, olive oil, flax oil, coconut oil, and MCT oil. The product originally launched as a powder mix, but Sated’s founder believes the ready-to-drink version will be better.
