After you subtract fiber from the (total) carb content as the USDA lists it, cooked black beans have about 26g carbs per cup; but a large portion of the starch in the beans is digestion resistant, and after you take that into consideration, the digestible carb content might come down to about 18g per cup.

So not only are black beans low glycemic, they are probably relatively low carb.
