Carbohydrates Database – Amounts in Gluten Free Flour and Starch

Last Updated on

Some gluten-free dieters gain weight because of the higher carbohydrate content in gluten-free goods. This searchable database provides you with the amounts of carbohydrates in the most commonly used dry gluten-free ingredients such as flour, starches, protein, and common vegan items such as nutritional yeast. This information is important for weight loss and especially if you have diabetes or are on a low-carb diet. Starchy white flour may be okay to consume on occasion but always reach for the healthiest combinations. Learn the carb levels of your ingredients so that you can make healthy choices. 

Why Low-Carbs Are Better:

The more carbohydrates the average person consumes, the more weight they will gain. Therefore, try substituting a small amount of your gluten free flour with a lower-carb ingredient. Heavier ingredients such as flaxseed meal should be used in small amounts. You can slowly increase the item each time you make it. Stop increasing it once you discover how hardy of a baked good you prefer.

If you are diabetic, you are already aware that low-carb meals help you control your blood glucose levels. If you are borderline diabetic, as so many Americans are, you should also watch the levels of carbohydrates that you consume.

Important Note: Bob’s Red Mill sometimes offers products in gluten free as well as gluten-containing varieties. Be sure to look for their gluten free symbol or the term “gluten free,” on their packaging. If you do not see either, it is not safe for you to consume if you are intolerant to gluten.
