Dear Trying
If you check the label of foods and they do have a Nutritional Content Table, the carbohydrates will be listed per 100g and per portion. If the food does not have a label like a sandwich or a burger, then you can check on the Food Tables on the Internet at:www/sahealthinfo.co.za and go to Nutrition to find the carb, protein, fat and energy contents of standard foods. Adult women can eat approx. 6 servings of starches such as brown bread a day, but it is a good idea to eat a variety of different foods (bread, cereal, porridge, starchy vegetables, etc) and not just bread.
Best regards
