Just wondering if anyone knows how to properly calculate the carbohydrates in a recipe, or if there is a website that gives you the conversions? I made a batch of delicious banana muffins this weekend, but am lost as to how to estimate the carbs. How much does the 1.5 cups flour, 3 large bananas, 3/4 cup of sugar, etc. come out to?
Thanks in advance!
I have a lot of issues with the data sources for many of the places. I agree, the USDA is a consistent source. What I have found is that I often want to just run a recipe through a calculator, and in that case I have found the recipe calculator at about.com very helpful. It lets you paste in the text, just as you have written above (well you have to add line breaks) and then calculates the total nutrition and nutrition per serving.
That's a great tool. Thanks Brian.
It even creates a cute little nutrition label! This makes it so easy to print and put into my recipe book!
I second the food.com nutritional info-- its pretty cool. People can set up recipe groups on there too-- wonder if there are many for diabetics...
