Starch in Diet

There are 3 main types of carbohydrate: sugars, starch and fiber. Starch and fiber are complex carbs.

Diabetes Diet and Starch

info from the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases

Starches are bread, grains, cereal, pasta, and starchy vegetables like corn and potatoes. They provide carbohydrate, vitamins, minerals, and fiber. Whole grain starches are healthier because they have more vitamins, minerals, and fiber.

Eat some starches at each meal. Eating starches is healthy for everyone, including people with diabetes.

Foods That May Cause Gas

Most starches, including potatoes, corn, noodles, and wheat, produce gas as they are broken down in the large intestine. Rice is the only starch that does not cause gas.

Gluten-Free Starches

The following grains and starches are allowed on a gluten-free diet:

  • Amaranth
  • Arrowroot
  • Beans or legumes
  • Buckwheat
  • Corn
  • Millet
  • Montina
  • Nut Flours
  • Potato
  • Quinoa
  • Rice
  • Sorghum
  • Soy
