Nourish Keto Awards®

The keto and low-carb market has been growing over the past few years. There are now thousands of products, restaurants

2023 Nourish Keto Awards® Entry Guide

This award chapter is exclusively for low-carb and keto products. As a guideline, these should be products where less than 6% of the total calories come from carbohydrates. (Net carbs.)

Please check the categories and read through this guide before entering.


We organise the judging at our custom designed premises with our in-house catering team. Our judging panel includes practising nutritionists and nutritional therapists, low-carb and keto specialists and other industry experts and representatives.

We invite up to 8 judges for each judging session. They taste all products and study the information including the list of ingredients and the nutrition. We use a combination of scores and ranking in order to determine the shortlist and the winners.

We are looking for products developed specifically for the low-carb market with the aim of tackling diabetes and obesity.

Products should achieve great taste and texture as well as being low in carbs or considerably lower than similar products on the market.

Winning products will deliver on taste, texture but also provide good nutrition, with high quality ingredients. Our judges will also look for products that provide a good source of protein, fibre, vitamins and minerals – as well as being delicious and appeal to a wide market.

All products are automatically entered into the Special Awards. The judges create the shortlist for the special awards from all entrants during the first round of judging. Winners will be determined from the shortlist based on scores, ranking and individual judges comments.
