For diabetics and people on carbohydrate restricted diets, a “free food” is considered to be any food that has less than five percent carbohydrate value. This classification means that you can consume 100 grams of this food, and not swallow more than five carbohydrates. Although these foods may contain a very small amount of carbohydrates, the amount is not yet sufficient enough to warrant consideration. This approach is successful when portions is limited to suggested serving amount.
Meat and fish
Meat and fish and most types of shells contain no carbohydrates. Crab, lobster and caviar contains small amounts of carbohydrates, but it still has a “free food.” By consuming meat and fish, it is important to remember that any spices, sauces or breading added product can drastically change the amount of carbohydrates present.
