The Eat Fit King Cake Revolutionizes Indulgence During Mardi Gras

This gluten-free, low-carb, dairy-free and keto-approved King Cake puts a healthy spin on a Mardi Gras tradition.

NEW ORLEANS, Jan. 15, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Where there is celebration, there is cake. It's no surprise, therefore, that you'll find the most lavish cake of all at the country's biggest party of the year – King Cake at Mardi Gras. The King Cake is a festive sweet roll glazed with purple, gold and green icing. With origins that date to the 12th century in France, the King Cake has now evolved into a right-of-passage, decadent sweet treat during Mardi Gras season. This year, three New Orleans-based companies have teamed up to take the King Cake one step further in its evolution. The Registered dietitians at Ochsner Eat Fit  combined forces with Unrefined Bakery to develop a king cake that's centered on a clean list of ingredients including Swerve Sweetener- a natural, plant-based, low-glycemic, zero-calorie sugar replacement that tastes and measures like sugar. 

The Eat Fit King Cake is naturally gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free and approved for a ketogenic diet.  Each serving has just two grams of net carbohydrates, zero sugar, and the same delicious, indulgent taste, making it the perfect healthy indulgence for individuals with healthy eating goals (remember those New Year's resolutions?)!

When compared with a traditional King Cake, the Eat Fit King Cake easily takes the cake when it comes to nutritionals:

  • No artificial food dyes, compared to the yellow 5, yellow 6, red 3, red 40, and blue 1 in most traditional king cakes
  • 93% fewer carbohydrates
  • 0 sugar (compared to 50 grams of sugar in a serving of traditional king cake)
  • 4 times more protein
  • 2.5 times more fiber
  • No white, refined flour

Now everyone can say, "Yes!" to King Cake this Mardi Gras season. The Eat Fit King Cake is available to purchase online from anywhere and ships nationwide from www.EatFitKingCake.com. It is also available in Whole Foods Markets throughout Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Arkansas, plus Unrefined Bakery's seven locations in Dallas and dozens of local retailers throughout Louisiana.
