Hi Sophie,
From an old post: Though I can’t trace the glycemic index of quinoa to it’s original source, the quinoa.net site lists quinoa as having a GI of 35. If that is the case, a quarter cup of quinoa (dry) would have 28 grams net carbs and 3 grams of fiber. That would give an FP of about 18 grams.
-eggs – 0 grams FP
-quinoa – see above.
-different protein powders (whey, soy, pea, hemp) – Most have 0 grams FP unless there is added sugar. The FP for sugar is approximately half the sugar grams.
-chia seeds – Look at the Fiber content which is equal to the FP.
-coconut oil – 0 grams FP.
