KEHO is the first ketogenic snack bite brand that is made from whole, plant-based foods. KEHO takes real sit-down food, inspired by four of the most popular global cuisines, and turns them into a plant-powered snack food. KEHO's (nutri)licious snacks bites are available in: Curry in a Hurry, Tex Mex Moment, Pizza To Go and Thai Me Over; ($23.75/box of 6). Each bite is a mini-meal, made from rocking recipes with real, whole ingredients such as: premium nuts, nutritious veggies, salad-quality oils and real herbs & spices. KEHO tastes good because real food, tastes good. True to its name, KEHO being Finnish for "living human body", is on a real food mission and never uses fake flavorings (artificial or natural), is gluten free and is Non GMO Certified.
Keto is hard, especially if you don't eat meat. KEHO Founder, Tekla Black, struggled to find real foods to snack on that were aligned with her healthy lifestyle choices of following a keto diet and being a pescaterian.
A self-proclaimed terrible cook, Tekla was forced to depend on so called ‘nutrition’ bars until she realized that they have an average of 2.5 tsp of sugar and that most bars are held together with honey, or eggs i.e., animal products. Keto- specific bars are full of fake fibers and sugar alcohols that can have unfortunate side effects, like chicory toot. Tekla also prefers savory flavors over sweet ones, limiting snack options even further. Most savory snacks are in the form of a chip (potato, corn, name your veggie) and typically are offered in salt/flavor (BBQ, cheddar) in a bag. Once again, limiting options to carb based snacks. The few keto alternatives e.g., jerky or cheese sticks are animal based. That leaves nuts, which gets boring fast and nut butters, which are not nice in your pocket after a day of ski touring.
Not a cook, Tekla was known to compile in the kitchen; eating random combinations of things to hit her macro and nutrition needs. KEHO evolved over time from multiple snack experiments and doing endless keto math. The final flavors are the most ordered plant-based meals off seamless and the spice mixes are developed from analytics of the most popular recipes online. KEHO is geek gourmet - balancing a huge amount of nutrition and food science with real tasty food.
