When on a ketogenic diet, the goal is to achieve ketosis – the metabolic state where the body burns fat instead of glucose for fuel. While in ketosis, your body also makes an abundance of ketones. Ketone test strips are thin paper strips that detect ketones in urine. The colour chart provided helps you estimate what level of ketosis you’re in—the darker the color, the higher the level of ketosis.
Directions: Firmly hold end farthest away from Test Pad. Pass Test Pad through urine stream. After 40 seconds match Test Pad to the color chart shown on label for result.
Cautions & Warnings: Promptly replace cap after taking out strip. Do not remove or discard desiccant. Keep away from light and moisture. Discard after expiration date. Test is no longer accurate after 60 seconds. Store in a cool, dry place. Do not refrigerate or freeze.
