I don’t know about you, but enjoying cheese, crackers and dip on a Friday evening is one of my favourite things in the world. If you have the time to make your dips from scratch, go for it, there are great recipe online.

If not, we’ve popped together a quick list of  20 low carb dips!

Tips for buying dips.

1. Look for dips with 5g carbs per 100g or less.

2. Choose dips that have the most real food ingredients and no added sugar (where possible)

Note: As they are ready made, most dips have some sorts of preservatives and stabilisers in them.

Our criteria: Less than 5g carbs per 100g
