Unbun Foods is a Toronto-based company that was founded in 2017 by Gus Klemos from his one-bedroom apartment. At the time, Gus was disappointed with the special diet foods he could (or couldn’t) find, so he decided to make his own product that would help change the low carb world. From the beginning, Unbun products have always been gluten-free, grain-free and suitable for low carb diets include ketogenic and Paleo diets. Within just two years, the company began partnering with local and national establishments to provide keto-friendly bread and pizza options, serving over 1,500 locations in total! Unbun products can now be found at quick service restaurants such as Mr. Sub, Pizza Pizza, and The Burger’s Priest as well as a number of national grocers, including The Low Carb Grocery.
Unbun’s success can be attributed to keeping things uncomplicated. They believe that the freshest, most natural ingredients make for the best recipes and happiest customers. The keto diet is about more than just the macros; food quality is also important. This is why Unbun never uses any fillers or chemically engineered ingredients, which has helped them achieve true Keto Certification. Some of their key ingredients and their health benefits are described below. For a full list of ingredients, check out all the Unbun products on our site.
Almond flour is a great gluten-free, grain-free, low carb alternative to traditional wheat flour. Plus, almonds provide several health benefits due to their rich nutrient profile. Not only are almonds rich in healthy fats – a must have on a ketogenic diet – but they also provide numerous essential vitamins and minerals that contribute towards a healthy, balanced diet. Including healthy fats in your diet has been shown to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, improve blood sugar control and allow for healthy weight management.
Coconuts are also rich in healthy fats and provide nutrients that can improve metabolism, promote blood sugar regulation, and reduce certain risk factors for heart disease. The blend of coconut and almond flours in Unbun products provides great texture and flavour, plus a blend of nutrients.
Eggs are a complete protein, meaning they contain all nine essential amino acids. We need amino acids in order for our bodies to build proteins, which make up everything from our muscles, bones and skin to things like hormones, enzymes and other body chemicals. Eggs are also one of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet, containing every essential vitamin and mineral required by the human body other than Vitamin C.
Pumpkin seeds are one of the richest natural sources of magnesium, a mineral that is heavily involved in blood sugar control and other important functions in the body. Since not many foods contain significant amounts of magnesium, many people are magnesium deficient, which can worsen medical conditions such as diabetes. Pumpkin seeds are also rich in fibre, zinc, and antioxidants.
Flax seeds are extremely rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which help fight inflammation in the body. Inflammation is caused by natural metabolic processes, but also from exposure to environmental pollutant and toxins (including chemicals in processed foods). Plus, flax is a great source of fibre, making it an all-around great addition to Unbun bakery products.
Chia seeds are small but mighty! Packed with omega-3 fatty acids, fibre, and high-quality protein as well as various vitamins and minerals, they deliver a massive amount of nutrients with very few calories. It is believed that these super seeds were a staple part of the ancient Aztec diet. The Aztecs thought so highly of chia seeds that they even offered them to the gods as a sign of worship!
Psyllium husk is a form of fibre that is praised for its ability to improve digestive health. It is highly soluble in water, making it one of the more effective fibre sources and is not associated with excessive flatulence. Increasing fibre in the diet has many other benefits for other parts of the body, too. Namely, it can help reduce cholesterol levels, improve cardiovascular health and help regulate blood sugar levels. Plus, fibre helps keep you full for long periods of time while being low in net carbohydrates!
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Extra virgin olive oil is one of the healthiest oils on the planet! Not only is it rich in flavour, but it also provides a number of antioxidants and healthy fats. Some of the benefits of using olive oil include improved heart health, reduced inflammation and the prevention of cognitive decline in the elderly. It is no wonder that it is a dietary staple in some of the healthiest regions of the world! Note that the type of olive oil is also important, which is why Unbun uses extra virgin olive oil, “extra virgin” indicating the least amount of refinement, or none at all.
