Will a low-carb, high-protein bagel find success among its unhealthier counterparts? In this episode of the Xtalks Food Podcast, Sydney introduces the team to the Better Bagel, the first product from California-based startup Better Brands. Its founder, Aimee Yang, believes daily bagel eaters shouldn’t have to sacrifice taste and nutrition, so she created the Better Bagel, which is low in carbs and sugar and high in protein. The team discuss how the keto trend tends to replace bread products with entirely different food groups, but praises Better Brands for improving upon the traditionally high-carb breakfast bagel.

The team discuss whether they would try the frozen coffee and where Cometeer will fit into the $35 million global specialty coffee market.
