    If you are worried about ketosis, then dont be. I think a tablespoon of curry powder has about 6g of carb in it, and i doubt you are using that much.

    The official line (from a medical site i saw once, but cant remember where) states than anything less than 130g carb a day is low carb. That sounds pretty high to me, for instance 1 slice from a small hovis is 9.5g of carb, so on the basis of the official line you could eat almost a loaf and half a day and still be low carbing.

    I think the generally accepted level is 80g or less a day, Exante gives you something like 58g a day, so a few extra carbs and minimal calories are not going to hurt, especially if it makes the soups more palatable.

    I add curry powder to the tomato soup and its never knocked me out of ketosis. Maybe it would be different if I were having it every day but since its only twice a week max it isnt having any effect.

    If adding something makes it actually pleasant as opposed to 'medicine' I wouldnt hesitate
