Finding foods that contain zero carbs or low carbs is like hitting gold, every low carber wants to see little or no carbs in the food that they consume, so we have created a list to help make things easy for you. All the food items listed are on the allowed list and are listed per 100g, many of the items listed won’t be eaten in that amount each time but that’s the way food is listed on packaging so I’ve listed it the same way so as not confuse new starters.

There are some foods listed that that do contain minimal amounts of carbs but because it is so low it is classed as zero, government legislation states if something is below a 1 gram of carbs it can be classed as zero so bear that in mind when calculating your daily carbs and make an allowance of 0.5g for it if you really want to be cautious.

Carbs are calculated using my fitness pal app, there may be inconsistencies between different brands so check all packaging for yourself to make sure. For uk residents please be aware that our nutritional information shows net carbs with the fibre already being deducted.
