Checking urine samples for ketone bodies is an easy and affordable way to know if you are in ketosis. Use Finaflex Ketone Test Strips for quick and accurate results.
If you have been following the keto diet or using a keto supplement for losing weight, it is advisable to keep track of your ketosis. While there are many ways to know if you are in ketosis, using ketone strips for urine is perhaps the best way.
A ketone strip is a thin long piece of plastic that helps to detect urine ketone levels. At one end of the strip, there is a test pad. When the test pad comes in contact with ketones in the urine sample, it changes its color.
You can estimate your urine ketone levels by comparing the color of the test pad with the color chart printed on the packaging. Typically, a darker test pad color indicates higher ketone levels in urine.
Ketone Test Strips specifically detect the levels of acetoacetic acid, which is a ketone produced by the degradation of fats in the body.
