Yes, it does. If you are allergic or have an adverse reaction to real licorice, we would recommend avoiding the Black Licorice flavor Keto Chow.
Black Licorice also contains a naturally occurring compound called “glycyrrhizin” that, if consumed excessively, can cause depletion of potassium. OK, so what do we mean by that? The FDA recommends “If you’re 40 or older, eating 2 ounces (60g) of black licorice a day for at least two weeks could land you in the hospital with an irregular heart rhythm or arrhythmia.” The Black Licorice flavor of Keto Chow uses 2g of licorice flavoring. Let’s take the worst-case scenario and assume that the entire 2g is actual licorice, to get the 60g the FDA warns about, you would need to consume 30 meals of Keto Chow A DAY for 2 weeks. That’s 780g of protein and it’s frankly, not going to happen.
