Key Market Trends

The Growing Demand for Ketogenic Beverages is Driving the Market Growth

MCT (medium-chain triglycerides) oil, almond butter in to-go pouches, and nutritional drinks and bone broth with keto-specific packaging are some of the most popular products in the market. Some of the most popular keto drinks like iced tea, bulletproof coffee, and keto hot chocolate are boosting the demand in the beverages segment of the market studied. For instance, in December 2018, Koia and Whole Foods Market launched a range of drinks that are suitable for people following a ketogenic diet. Koia launched its new line of Koia Keto 100% plant-based protein beverages in three flavors: chocolate brownie, cake batter, and caramel crème.
