From Bucharest, Romania:

My son, aged 9, was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes when he was 6. As I would like to diversify his meals, I would like to prepare some puddings, but I have no idea what is the carbohydrates contents/100 grams for cornstarch or other starches.


There are 90 grams of carbohydrate in 100 grams of cornstarch and tapioca (quick cooking or granulated). 100 grams of flour has about 76 grams of carbohydrate.
