Which vegetables are low in sugar?
Asked by anonymous on Dec 03, 2008 in Nutrition




Answer

Vegetables that contain more water are usually lower in carbohydrate and calories.  Low sugar vegetables include tender green leafy vegetables (spinach, lettuce, salad greens), asparagus, cucumber, radish, cabbage, celery, broccoli, cauliflower, and mushrooms.  Root vegetables and those with less water are highest in sugar.  Examples are green peas, corn, winter squash, beets, white potatoes, and sweet potato.  Every other vegetable is somewhere in between.  Read about sugar in vegetables from the Guide to Low Carb Diets at About.com.
