Ketone Test Strips

What Are Ketone Test Strips?

Ketone Strips are plastic strips that contain a test pad on the end. The test pad changes color when it reacts to ketones in urine. The test pad is then compared to the color chart printed on the test strip bottle, and once the test pad is matched to a color on the color chart urine ketone level is identified.

How Ketone Test Strips Work

Ketone Strips are made to specifcally test for acetoacetic acid (ketones). If acetoacetic acid is present in the urine sample that is introduced to the test pad, the acetoacetic acid reacts with the nitroprusside (active reagent on test pad) to cause color change. Each color represents a different concentration of ketone levels in the urine sample tested.

How The Keto Diet Works

In the body, when carbohydrates are consumed they are converted into glucose which is the body's primary energy source. When glucose is not available the body breaks down fat stores for energy (ketones). The ketogenic dieter consumes high levels of fat in order to provide energy to fuel the body's processes because carbohydrates are not being consumed. Ketones become the body's primary energy source while on the ketogenic diet.

What is the ketogenic diet anyways?

Ketogenic Foods

The Ketogenic Diet (Keto for short) focuses on eating foods that contain High Levels of Fat (75%), Moderate Protein (20%), and Few Carbohydrates (5%).

Fat is broken down into BHB (Ketones) which become a primary energy source in the body because glucose is no longer being consumed.

BHB fuels the body's mental and physical processes while in Ketosis!

How to perform a ketone urine test:

Remove 1 strip from bottle. Hold end without pad. Replace cap on bottle immediately.

2

Pass test pad through urine stream. If needed, urine sample also can be collected in a clean cup.

3

After 15 seconds match test pad to color chart on label to determine amount of ketones in urine.

Waste of money. Opened the sealed container, and all of the strips were already yellow, not white like they are supposed to be. None of them changed colors at all when used, I think this may have been a bad batch.
