Below we take an in-depth look into BPI Sports Keto Bomb, to see whether this ketogenic coffee creamer has the right balance of fat and carbs for the ketogenic crowd.
BPI Sports Keto Bomb is an unusual substitute for coffee creamer. With 10g of fat and 0g of sugar per serving, this flavoured powder is said to be the ideal option for making tasty hot drinks whilst still adhering to the demanding boundaries of the ketogenic diet. Keto Bomb comes in a variety of flavours, including French vanilla latte and caramel macchiato.
This product’s use of maltodextrin could cause high blood sugar spikes, similar to those seen from eating sugar or other carbohydrates. Some argue that the use of this ingredient could even take dieters out of the desired ketosis state.
This product also uses saffron, which in high supplement doses can cause stomach issues, dizziness, high blood pressure, anxiety, and more.
The price of BPI Sports Keto Bomb is extremely high when you consider that there are only 18 servings of powder per tub. On the official BPI Sports website, a single tub costs $32.99 (plus shipping). Shipping is free on all orders of $50 or more. The cheapest price we’ve seen online for the same pack is $23.70 (on Amazon).
BPI Sports Keto Bomb is one of the most mystifying products we’ve come across in recent memory. Despite positioning itself as a keto-friendly coffee creamer substitute, it is hard to see how it could be considered at all appropriate for the ketogenic diet, much less designed for it.
With 10g of fat and 4g of carbs per serving, this product is not well-balanced for the keto diet. It actually contains maltodextrin, which is likely to cause insulin spikes that bring you out of ketosis. This eye-wateringly expensive powder offers no other discernible benefits either, making it little more than a flavoured sweetener with a bit of sunflower/avocado oil thrown in.
The business practices operated by BPI Sports also leave much to be desired. Despite claiming to offer a money-back guarantee, a proper examination of the company’s return policy reveals that they will not honour a return simply because a customer is dissatisfied.
The company has an extremely poor rating on the Better Business Bureau, and appear to sell a number of dud products that are more about making a quick buck than actually providing a useful service.
If you’re actually looking for a keto-friendly addition to your morning coffee, we recommend double-cream – it’ll end up being much safer for both your diet and wallet!

BPI Sports Keto Bomb is a substitute for coffee creamer, that is intended to be used by those following the ketogenic diet. To make it suitable for the ketogenic diet, Keto Bomb is designed to be high in dietary fat and free from all carbohydrates, particularly sugar. The manufacturers also claim that the powder is packed with electrolytes, Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs), and other ingredients that help customers to lose weight and perform better in the gym.
Keto Bomb is produced and sold by BPI Sports, a supplement manufacturer that appears to specialise in protein powders, amino acid blends, and performance boosters. BPI Sports appears to be one of the larger players in the supplement industry, and proudly declares on its official website that it has been featured in a range of publications, including OK Magazine, Men’s Health, Muscle & Fitness magazine, and more. However, the company has attracted criticism as well as praise; in 2012, it was actually subject to a class action lawsuit due to its history of selling DMAA, a banned and dangerous stimulant. BPI Sports also has an F rating on the Better Business Bureau, seemingly due to a lacklustre record of poor customer service. The company can be contacted via telephone (954-926-0900), or via the online support feature on their official website.
The directions for use are as follows:
Other BPI Sports supplements include BPI Keto XT and BPI Nite Burn.
Keto Bomb is advertised as a tasty coffee creamer that is uniquely suitable for those following the ketogenic diet (which requires that dieters consume most of their calories from dietary fat, with usually less than 20g of those coming from carbohydrates).
The manufacturers proudly state that the creamer has 0g of sugar per serving. In addition, it also supposedly contains ingredients that can burn fat and help dieters lose weight, as well as boost exercise performance and energy levels. It also provides a source of electrolytes, which are described as an aid to exercise recovery.
One shocking thing to note about this product is that it is not at all suitable for the ketogenic diet. With 4g of carbohydrates per serving, using this product will mean that a single cup of coffee will take up a fifth of the day’s carb allowance (those following the restrictive keto diet will recognise this as an uncomfortably large amount). In addition, the use of maltodextrin as an additive could also cause a blood-sugar spike that may even bring dieters out of ketosis altogether.
All of the other proposed benefits of this product are also duds. The 10g of fat per serving make this an extremely underwhelming keto aid, and the low quantities of electrolytes also make it a poor exercise recovery aid. There are no ingredients in the mix that have ever been reliably linked with fat burning or energy boosts.
The ingredients found in BPI Sports Keto Bomb are listed below. Unfortunately, the manufacturer fails to provide a full breakdown of ingredient quantities, which can make it impossible for customers to work out how effective the mix is. The quantities that are listed are correct for 1 (26g) scoop of powder. It’s also worth mentioning that each scoop contains 110 calories, 10g of fat, and 4g of carbohydrates.
One unfortunate side effect of using this product is its potential to cause blood sugar spikes via the use of a troubling carbohydrate called maltodextrin. This could make it unsuitable for those following the ketogenic diet, as it runs the risk of pulling observant dieters out of ketosis!
Constant supplementation of saffron is also surprisingly risky, with daily doses above 30mg causing serious issues. Potential side effects of saffron supplementation include anxiety, drowsiness, nausea, changes in appetite, headaches, lowered blood pressure, vomiting, dry mouth, dizziness, and more.
Not suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding women. Not suitable for anyone under the age of 18. If you are taking any medications or are unsure about the suitability of this supplement for you, consult your doctor before purchase.
Keto Bomb has mainly received positive reviews, although there are many angry customers in the Amazon reviews section that are angry about this product’s senseless use of maltodextrin. Most positive comments are directed to the product’s taste, which is reportedly very pleasant.
Terrific taste wether I add it to my coffee or tea. I only use a teaspoon at a time because the scoop that came with it is way too big.
Taste is better than all others. Blends in well with minimal chucks. Great taste. The only weird thing is that the container is half full. Seems a little wasteful.
HOW CAN AMAZON ALLOW THIS TO SOLD AS KETO WHEN IT HAS Maltodextrin which can cause spikes in your blood sugar because it has a high glycemic index, and this can be particularly dangerous for people with diabetes symptoms or insulin resistance. Maltodextrin’s glycemic index is even higher than table sugar.
This isn’t not a keto friendly product. It’s first ingredient is Maltodextrin which is a sugar substitute that will kick you out of ketosis.
Despite claiming to offer a 30-day money-back guarantee on their official website, a closer look at the BPI Sports’ returns policy reveals that they offer nothing of the sort. American customers are only permitted to receive a refund if their returned products are unopened and in a re-saleable condition. International customers cannot organise a return at all in most circumstances.
BPI Sports Keto Bomb is available to buy on the official BPI Sports website, Amazon, Lucky Vitamin, iHerb, GNC, and many other online and high street stores.
