Raw Bites bag contain 15gm of protein which is equivalent to two whole eggs and a half or ¾ of a steak or ¾ of a chicken breast… would any of the mentioned food damage a healthy kidneys? Definitely no. Our protein puff is made of 100% natural ingredients just like tuna, eggs, steak… Having said that, in general excessive intake of protein is usually not recommended for patients with kidney problems. Any doctor would recommend their patients to avoid food with high protein level such as red meat… Therefore, our Raw Bites can be safely consumed for all people that are not suffering any kidney problems.
Since our product is made of milk, nuts, oil and salt only… we do not see any reason why it should be avoided. Unless the particular woman has any allergy to the above ingredients. Usually, pregnant woman would crave and eat more junk food than in normal days. We believe that our snack is still much healthier than almost all other snacks sold in the market today.

Going back to basics; the recommended daily total protein intake from food as well as protein supplements are as per the following: Male Adult = 1.5 to 2gms for each 1kg of body weight; Female Adult = 1 to 1.5gms for each 1kg of body weight; Kinds = 1gm for each 1kg of body weight. As long as our Raw Bites is within the allowed total daily recommended intake then it is safe to be consumed. Therefore, since it is safe for kids to consume 15gm of proteins available in a couple of whole eggs or a couple of glasses of natural whole cow milk, then our Raw Bites are as safe.
In general there is not best time. We would like to recommend having Raw Bites treated as a “meal replacement” or “food supplement”. In other words, to be part of your daily protein required intake as recommended in the above answer. Therefore, it adds up to your other meals and snacks consumed during the day to reach your recommended target. In other words, it can be consumed whenever you are hungry and a decent whole-meal cannot be prepared, craving for a salty snacks, pre-work out, post work out, on the go…
It all depends on your daily calorie intake, burning & target. 204 calories per a Raw Bites bag should be more or less 10% of your allowed total calorie intake. Therefore, you still have a plenty of allowed to calories to consume from other foods during the day. Having said that, 204 calories of a tasty, healthy and nutritious snack (meal replacement) of Raw Bites is worth every single calorie.
Raw Bites is not considered to be Keto friendly, simply because it is produced from corn. At Raw Bites, we believe that a complete meal is a healthy meal, made from good fats, carbohydrates and proteins. Our bodies need all three types of food for healthy growth far from diseases and illnesses. With Keto Diet, you should be depriving your body from healthy carbohydrates that normally created by god and nature to give you energy and assist in protein (amino acid) synthesis in building muscles naturally. Therefore, by dropping carbohydrates intake to 50gm per day, you are somehow forcing your body to use your protein as energy instead of building muscles as well as you are forcing involuntary some organs in your digestive system to function in an unusual way. Another issue that we have with Keto Diet, those Dieters tend to eat excessive quantities of good and bad fats and this might have an adverse consequence on the overall health.

Sea salt is considered to be as one of the safest and most natural source as well as least processed form of salt on our planet. It is simply derived from sea just by evaporating the sea water.

Therefore, they can still safely consume a half bag of Raw Bites and still can eat other food rich with protein during the day.
