Scoops vs Weighing your Keto Chow

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Frequently the question comes up: is it best to use the included scoop to measure your Keto Chow, or should you use a scale to measure it?

Hands-down, the most accurate method is to weigh it using a scale. This will get you an extremely accurate measurement, doesn’t mess with scoop packing and bubbles, and ensures you’re getting the correct 21 meals from the bag since we weigh the powder going into the bag. Using a scoop to measure is always more of an estimate. For most people, that estimate is close enough for them. But just how close or far off is using a scoop? The latest version of Chocolate Keto Chow wasn’t as dense as the previous one and didn’t pack into the 94cc scoop like it used to so people were reporting that the chocolate flavor wasn’t as strong. That particular flavor, we switched to a 100cc scoop to account for the difference. While on that, we decided to test ALL of the flavors using milk protein and here’s what we came up with by tightly packing the scoop and weighing it several times:

Flavor difference
Chocolate 93.82%
Vanilla 106.25%
Cookies & Cream 102.28%
Strawberry 104.57%
Salted Caramel 101.37%
Mocha 95.77%
Banana 103.09%
Natural Strawberry 104.59%
Pumpkin Spice 102.71%
Snickerdoodle 103.07%
Eggnog 99.14%
Chocolate Toffee 100.56%
Root Beer 97.77%
Chocolate Mint 95.89%
Orange Cream 100.73%
Raspberry Cheesecake 100.11%
Chicken Soup 102.86%

The chocolate was revised to 100.2% by using the larger scoop. Again: for most people, the difference between the serving size and what you average will be close enough that they’ll just use the scoop. If you don’t pack the scoop very well, your numbers may be different though.
