Food nutrition question

Asked April 24, 2014, 6:34 PM EDT

Is there a chart, booklet, website, etc where I can compare flours and starches for nutritional makeup and substitutions? I need to make some foods and snacks that are grain free and as low starch as possible. Thank you for your help.

Thank you for your question for eXtension.
I am not an expert in special dietary needs so I asked my specialist for information. For nutrition information, the best bet is to go to the USDA Nutrient data base site. You can search by different types of flour. This publication from Clemson might also be helpful:
And you might try searching the website to find a licensed dietician in your area to help you.
