Is Cauliflower A Starch?


If you are wondering if cauliflower is considered a starch, the answer is no. The American Diabetes Association lists cauliflower as a non-starchy vegetable. While 1 cup of cauliflower contains about 5 grams of carbohydrates, this is far less than other vegetables that are considered starches. Two of the carbohydrates in cauliflower come from fiber, which is a healthy starch. Carbohydrates provide energy to the body, but many people, including diabetics, need to eat a lower carb diet. Cauliflower is a good choice if you are trying to avoid eating too many carbs.
