Carbs in cabbage? Is there a list of carbs in veggies that is the most accurate?

I seem to be finding different carb amounts depending on the site I go to. Which site has the most reliable carb counts??

Thanks
Sheri

Hi Sheri…

USDA National Nutrient Database for Standard Reference - CLiCK

This is my official go-to one…

there isn't usually so much difference by weight, but the measured quantities vary all over the place. obviously you can get a lot more cabbage into a cup if you pack it in... only the weights are accurate.

Cooked or raw seems to make a difference too, but I could never figure out why! (Cooked is higher!) Unless it's because you can fit more of them into a cup when they're cooked......

Hi sm…
You figured it out…

Particularly true if you are going by volume and not by weight.

And because cooking begins the process of breaking foods down into sugars.

Oooh, brilliant! I was wondering the same thing about cooking/raw. I may have to pull out my scale and weigh veg.

Ahhh cabbage, the one family of veg that I can enjoy and not even worry about counting.

For some strange reason the entire cabbage family OTHER THAN the roots don't cause my blood sugar to spike (as long as I eat them with something else mind you) regardless of how much I chow down on.
