This is from the Crockpot "Apples"? thread:

low-carb-dad, here's what I got from the USDA site:

Yambean (jicama), raw
Scientific Name: Pachyrhizus spp.
NDB No: 11603 Nutrient Units 1 large
-------
1200 g (2.645 pounds)
Proximates
Water g 1080.840
Energy kcal 456.000
Energy kj 1908.000
Protein g 8.640
Total lipid (fat) g 1.080
Ash g 3.600
Carbohydrate, by difference g 105.840
Fiber, total dietary g 58.800

The 47 carbs are net carbs for a large jicama (2.645 pounds). I just purchased 9 jicama at $0.99/pound which weighed a total of 5.03 pounds for ~10 carbs each ;-). Doing the math there are 17.7 carbs per pound and 1.1 carb per ounce.
