carbohydrate are grouped into the following
categories. The carbohydrate content is listed in grams (g). If you eat a
larger portion, count it as more than one serving.
One serving of carbohydrate has 15 grams of carbohydrate. Of course, not all foods contain exactly 15 grams of carbohydrate. Typically if a food has 8 to 22 grams of carbohydrate, that is equal to 1 carbohydrate serving.
These are also good sources of calcium.
The carbohydrate content of sweets varies
according to the ingredients. Talk with a registered dietitian about how to
work these foods into your meal plan.
For a complete listing of foods containing carbohydrate,
contact the American Diabetes Association.
