TOP PICK OF THE WEEK: Kitu Super Coffee

Kitu Super Coffee is a delicious blend of real ingredients for all day energy. It’s sugar free, lactose free, soy free, and gluten free, with 10 grams of protein.

Jordan DeCicco, founder of Kitu, created Super Coffee in his dorm room. As a tired college basketball player seeking refreshment, he found only sugary bottled coffees and energy drinks at his school.

Not wanting the empty sugar calories, he brewed a better-for-you energy blend following the ketogenic diet nutritional approach known. He incorporated healthy fats and protein for fuel, rather than carbs and sugar.

Now a successful brand with national distribution, Super Coffee can be stored at room temperature, but is best enjoyed refrigerated, over ice, or heated up for two minutes in the microwave.

The line is gluten free, GMO free, lactose free, and soy free. While it was designed as a functional food (one with benefits beyond its normal purpose), it is equally attractive to people who drink sweetened bottled coffee but would like it without sugar or dairy.

The main ingredient is organic Columbian coffee, 200mg of natural caffeine per bottle. Others include:

  • Coconut MCT oil*
  • Gellan gum (a thickening agent)
  • Natural flavors
  • Potassium phosphate†
  • Sweetener blend of all-natural monk fruit and organic stevia
  • Whey protein concentrate‡ (lactose free, 10g protein per bottle)
  • There are four flavors:

  • Original (unsweetened, no added flavors)
  • Hazelnut
  • Mocha
  • Vanilla
  • Kitu also makes similarly-enhanced creamers for coffee and tea in Original and Vanilla.
