Carbohydrates in food

I have to watch the carbohydrates I eat, since I am Type 2 pre-diabetic, I made myself this list of foods I tend to eat by carbs per 100g. I've split them into several categories, based on the carbs per 100g:

  • extreme carbs, above 70g
  • high carbs, anything between 35g and 70g
  • medium carbs, between 15g and 35g
  • low carbs, between 5g and 15g
  • very low carbs between 1g and 5g
  • Negligible or no carbs, below 1g

My source is basically Google searches. This is a work in progress and will change as I add to this list.

Extreme (above 70g)

Sugar, Rice (uncooked)

High carbs (between 35g and 70g)

Chickpeas, Brown bread, Pasta (uncooked), White bread
