What foods are high in starch?

Date:Dec 11, 2015/ FAQ/ Chat online/ Technical support



Starches, sugars and fiber are the carbohydrates in food. Starch can be extracted from wheat, corn, cassava, potato etc. Carbohydrates are a molecule that plants make during photosynthesis, combining carbon, hydrogen and oxygen. They are very important in your body's metabolism because they are generally the part of food that is digested most quickly.

Carbohydrates can give you quick energy, and cause a rise in blood sugar levels. Diabetics, in particular, need to pay attention to the carbohydrates they eat to help manage their blood sugar. Some carbohydrates, those found in whole grains and leafy vegetables, for example have a much slower impact on blood sugar than carbohydrates in fruits or candy. It's easy to consume a lot of carbohydrates, as foods like breads, pasta, cake, cookies and potatoes are loaded with them. Nutrition experts suggest that you should only get 45 to 65 percent of your daily nutrition from carbohydrates.

Foods high in starch include:

    Starchy vegetables like peas, corn, lima beans, and potatoes

    Dried beans, lentils, and peas such as pinto beans, kidney beans, black eyed peas, and split peas

    Grains like oats, barley, and rice. (The majority of grain products in the US are made from wheat flour. These include pasta, bread, and crackers but the variety is expanding to include other grains as well.)
