One commonly asked question about flavored coffees is whether or not they are compliant with certain lifestyles and diets. We’re here to help clarify that question for you!
Whether you’re keto, paleo, vegan, whole 30, or gluten-free, there are ﬂavored coﬀee options for everyone!
Here’s what you should look for when choosing a coﬀee ﬂavoring, depending on your diet.
If you’re following a keto diet, you’re looking for high fat and low sugar. This makes black coﬀee with unsweetened cream a perfect choice but makes ﬁnding sweeter ﬂavored coﬀees more diﬃcult. However, there are a few ﬂavors that are in line with the keto lifestyle!
When looking for ﬂavorings, look for sugarless syrups or coﬀee blends. Salted caramel or dark chocolate is often the perfect ﬂavorings for keto followers. Aim to enjoy these in moderation, however.
So many sweeteners and coﬀee ﬂavors are made out of gluten-containing alcohol-based, making it diﬃcult to ﬁnd a ﬂavored coﬀee that works for the paleo lifestyle. However, many natural, paleo-friendly sweeteners and ﬂavorings exist!
Flavors like vanilla, cacao, cinnamon, and nutmeg are all compliant with the diet, as well as natural sweeteners like maple syrup, raw honey, raw coconut sugar, and date sugar.
Finding ﬂavored coﬀee while on a gluten-free diet can be daunting at times. Many ﬂavorings are made with an alcohol base, which may also contain gluten. Also, some coﬀee grounds could be subject to gluten contamination if packaged in factories with other products containing gluten.

Enjoying ﬂavored coﬀee can be diﬃcult when following a vegan diet since many coﬀee ﬂavorings and creamers contain animal byproducts. However, we believe that there is a ﬂavored coﬀee for everyone!
The goal is to look for plant-based natural ﬂavorings in your ﬂavored syrups and coﬀee ground
Whole 30 Coffee
It can be diﬃcult to avoid sugars and grains when trying to ﬁnd ﬂavored coﬀees on the Whole 30 lifestyle, but there are still plenty of options to choose from! All-natural ﬂavors like vanilla bean powder, pumpkin spice, raw cacao, cinnamon, and nutmeg are all compliant with the Whole 30 diet.
It’s recommended that Whole 30 followers switch to whole bean coﬀee to ensure that the coﬀee remains compliant with the diet and doesn’t lose any of its natural beneﬁts.
There’s a coﬀee blend for everyone at Zavida! From vegan options to paleo options we want to ﬁt into every lifestyle.
