12 of the Best Keto Condiments We Love
Keto condiments make everything tastier!
Whether you’re using them for cooking or dipping, these keto condiments are our favorite complement to any meal. While some are naturally keto and some are sugar-free adaptations, we’re excited to share a few of our team’s low-carb favorites!
1. Avocado oil mayonnaise
Oh mayo, how we love you… Low in carbs and high in fats, creamy mayonnaise is one of those essential keto condiments you’ll always want to have on hand!
We also love that the traditional oil is subbed with healthy avocado oil when you opt for the Primal Kitchen brand, and there’s even a chipotle flavor to spice things up! Mix it in with some sugar-free ketchup and you have a super yummy dipping sauce (also called “fry sauce” in some areas).
Our favorite: Primal Kitchen Mayo With Avocado Oil
- Serving size: 1 Tbsp | Calories: 100 | Total Fat: 12g | Total Carbs: 0g (0g fiber, 0g sugar) | Protein: 0g
- Ingredients: Avocado oil, organic eggs, organic egg yolks, organic vinegar, sea salt, organic rosemary extract
Hip recipe suggestion: Keep things light and refreshing with our creamy low-carb coleslaw.
It’s a little tangy, a little spicy, and adds a whole lot of flavor no matter what you’re adding it to. You can opt for a stone-ground version for a little texture or a classic yellow when you have fussy eaters. Whatever you do, stay away from honey mustard, which contains sugars (or try this sugar-free honey mustard dipping sauce).
Our favorite: Great Value Organic Dijon Mustard
- Serving size: 1 tsp | Calories: 5 | Total Fat: 0g | Total Carbs: 0g (0g fiber, 0g sugar) | Protein: 0g
- Ingredients: Water, organic mustard seeds, organic vinegar, salt, natural flavor, organic turmeric, organic guar gum, organic spices
Hip recipe suggestion: Add some tang in our cauliflower no-potato salad.
3. Unsweetened Ketchup
Do not let the lack of sugar fool you, this sugar-free organic ketchup is full of flavor. Most reviewers said they can’t tell the difference between the original sugar-based versions!
Our favorite: Primal Kitchen Organic and Unsweetened Ketchup
- Serving size: 1 Tbsp | Calories: 10 | Total Fat: 0g | Total Carbs: 2g (0g fiber, 1g sugar) | Protein: 0g
- Ingredients: Organic tomato concentrate, organic balsamic vinegar, less than 2% of salt, organic onion powder, organic garlic powder, organic spices
4. Coconut Aminos (Soy Sauce Alternative)
Coconut aminos (a.k.a. gluten-free soy sauce) is a great source of sodium and electrolytes so it’s perfect if you’re experiencing a bit of the keto flu! It’s great for those with gluten allergies or anyone who wants to avoid (even fermented) soy.
Our favorite: Coconut Secret Coconut Aminos
- Serving size: 1 tsp | Calories: 5 | Total Fat: 0g | Total Carbs: 1g (0g fiber, 1g sugar) | Protein: 1g
- Ingredients: Organic coconut tree sap aged and blended with sundried, mineral-rich sea salt
5. Sugar-Free BBQ Sauce
You go, grill! Sugar-free BBQ sauces make chicken, burgers, ribs, and steaks all the more flavorful without a crazy amount of carbs. I even add some to the slow cooker with flank steak, pork loin, and cheap cuts of meat at the end of the cooking cycle for some added flavor.
Our favorite: Primal Kitchen Organic and Unsweetened Classic BBQ Sauce AND these 3 low-carb BBQ sauces, too!
- Serving size: 2 Tbsp | Calories: 15 | Total Fat: 0g | Total Carbs: 3g (<1g fiber, 2g sugar) | Protein: 0g

Another one of our team favorites is Sweet Baby Ray’s No Sugar Added Original BBQ Sauce and while it probably isn’t one the “cleanest” keto condiments, we’re still big fans of the flavor!
Ok, this BBQ sauce rocks! We enjoy it on ribs, pulled pork, and chicken. You’d never know it’s keto-friendly! -Lina, Hip recipe creator
Hip Recipe Suggestion: Simmer those BBQ flavors into this pulled pork recipe.
6. Hot Sauce
Made from just vinegar, chile peppers, and a touch of seasoning, hot sauce should definitely be a keto pantry staple. It’s delicious on pretty much everything like cauliflower crust pizza to spicy Buffalo wings.
Our favorite: Frank’s RedHot sauce
- Serving size: 1 tsp | Calories: 0 | Total Fat: 0g | Total Carbs: 0g (0g fiber, 0g sugar) | Protein: 0g

Another team favorite is Sweet Baby Ray’s Buffalo Wing Sauce. It’s got a kick to it, but tastes so good on chicken and other meats!
Hip recipe suggestion: Spice things up with our Buffalo chicken and cauliflower casserole.
7. Sugar-Free Steak Sauce
A1 has got nothing on this stuff! It’s made with natural ingredients and contains no preservatives, so it definitely holds up to clean keto standards.

“Primal Kitchen Steak Sauce is my favorite! I use it with pork chops, steak, chicken – all the meat! It is SO good and has such a good flavor, I would prefer it over A1 any day!” – Jessica, Hip sidekick
Hip recipe suggestion: Serve some sauce alongside a perfectly seared steak.
8. Ranch Dressing
You’ll have to be a little more diligent in checking labels for salad dressings since the nutritional value can vary – even for the same dressing types! As a rule of thumb, go with keto condiments that have a carb count of 2 carbs or less per serving.
Hip Tip: You can thin ranch slightly by adding a little less than 2 tablespoons of water for easier pouring and greater coverage.

Hip recipe suggestion: Make your own ranch with our dip recipe like Hip sidekick, Jenna does! She puts it on EVERYTHING!
