You Readers are doing a good job of cheering me up on this cold and rainy day - it feels like the middle of winter! The information you require is as follows according to the SA Food Tables: Carrots, raw: 181 kJ and 6.9 g of carbohydrates per 100g, with a high GI.
Apples, raw with skin: 245 kJ and 13.1 g carbohydrates per 100g, with a GI of 38 which is low. Thus from an energy and carb point of view carrots are lower, but the apple will keep your blood sugar levels stable for longer and prevent hunger pangs. Both carrots and apples are excellent slimming foods.
