Abbreviated Sugar and Starch Content in Foods

Quick Reference for Sugar and Starch Content in Foods Commonly Used in My Kids Have CSID recipes and blog…

My son’s dietician initially gave him limits on total starch and sucrose. He worked his way up to 25 grams of sucrose per meal with Sucraid over a period of approximately one year. See Induction Diet link for more on introducing sucrose.

*Sucrose and Starch amounts per 100 grams.

If your child appears to tolerate foods on this list apart from the group specified, please contact me. One main ingredient there is very little information regarding tolerance for is almonds. My research indicated almonds are easy on digestion and I have had a few reports from mothers with children in Group A who seem to tolerate almonds, almond flour etc. Please indicate if the almonds are raw, blanched, ground, etc. Thanks!
