Low Carb Spinach?
I have a dumb question.
I really needed the fiber and some other nutrients plus I try to eat greens at least twice a week so I bought canned spinach. I read and read and read all the labels before settling for one from a local producer that only lists spinach, water and salt as ingredients. The spinach is presumably boiled, it tastes like it too. The label says "0 g." for Carbs. I'm thinking that can't be right. Maybe they mean sugar? The other varieties had 3, 5 and 7 g. listed and nutritiondata has similar carb counts for several spinach varieties.
It's not a big deal if it puts me above my carb limit for today, I tend to not stress about what I eat, I'm just curious how many carbs ARE there in spinach. I'm confused now with conflicting sources of information.
