Asian foods can be difficult to carb count. Below is a list of foods that families tell us they most frequently have trouble locating carbs for. When you are home and able to measure, this will best help you estimate portion sizes. Food scales can also be helpful in counting carbs in homemade foods. Also, when you have a food label, look at the serving size and total carbohydrate listed on the label.
Don't forget to count the carbs in Asian sauces! Many of these are made with corn starch, fruit, yogurt, and/or bean paste. Try adding sauce with a tablespoon to help count portions. The serving size for all sauces listed here is 1 Tablespoon.
