EatSmart Carb-Factor Scale

If you are a diabetic and looking to improve your health by controlling your diet, the EatSmart CarbFactors Scale can help you do just that. The Guidebook to Carbohydrate Counting accompanying the scale lists 700 foods and their carbohydrate factor. The Carb-Factor is the amount of carbohydrate present in a gram of food. Simply multiplying the weight of your portion size by the carb-factor you can calculate total carbs. Finding the carbohydrate content of different foods is important for many reasons. For those people who are on a low-carb diet, a carb-restricted diet or for diabetics, counting the amount of carbs in the food that they eat is crucial. One of the most precise methods uses carbohydrate factors or carbohydrate ratio to calculate the amount of carbohydrate in a portion of food. A Carb-Factor is a number, calculated using USDA data that represents the amount of carbohydrate present per gram of food. Put another way, it is the percentage of a foods total weight that consists of carbohydrates versus other nutrients. To use this method, simply weigh an edible portion of food in grams and multiply it by its carb-factor to calculate the grams of carbohydrates in that portion. For example the carb-factor for a biscuit with ham and egg is 0.16. Simply weigh the portion you want in grams and multiply it by the carb-factor (0.16) to determine the grams of carbohydrates in the weighted portion. The Precision Pro Scale included in the package is ultra accurate, precise to .05 ounce / 1 gram increments and perfect for carbohydrate counting.
