Can ARG supplements be used on the Ketogenic Diet as pertains specifically to carbohydrate content?

We do not test the carbohydrate content for most of our products, as carbohydrate content, if any, is insignificant. Nutritional supplement manufacturers are required to list carbohydrate content only when it is present in measurable amounts, or when a claim is being made regarding the carbohydrate content, or when a carbohydrate is added to a dietary supplement for the purpose of supplementation. A measurable amount is established in the FDA document 21 CFR101.9(c) as one or more grams per serving. If a serving of a nutritional supplement contains less than 0.5 grams (500 mg) of total carbohydrate, the content may be expressed as zero, or not listed.

Formulas made up of nutrients only, having no added dietary carbohydrates except the “Other Ingredient” microcrystalline cellulose, typically contain much less than 500 mg of carbohydrate, and may provide as little as 20 mg or less per capsule. Even less is available, as cellulose is largely undigested and may not provide any calories from its carbohydrate content.
