12 Foods With More Carbs Than a Slice of Bread, Based on Science


Gluten-free bread

Carb count: Around 18 g carbs per slice

Just because a packaged food is gluten-free doesn’t mean that it’s carb-free. Many GF breads are made with potato or tapioca starch, which are positively loaded with carbs. (Options made with low-carb flours like almond flour might be a better fit.) If you’re not sure about the carb count of a specific bread, just check the nutrition label.

Barbecue sauce

Carb count: 30 g carbs in 1/4 cup barbecue sauce

You might slather it on high-protein fare like chicken or ribs, but most barbecue sauces are loaded with sugary ingredients like molasses, honey, brown sugar, and even juice. That means, yup, they’re also loaded with carbs.
