Default Carbs in Onion Soup Broth?

I have acquired a new love for french onion soup and am having trouble figuring out the carb count. Does anyone know how many carbs are in just the broth? It is home made, so just water, chicken stock, beef broth and reduced onions for flavor.

I don't eat the onions so I'm not sure how much of the flavor from my onions translates into carbs in the broth... Any thoughts?

You may want to search the threads from 1970clea. She posted a link a short time ago, where she puts ingredients into this thing online, and it breaks it all down for her.

Thanks Mary. My problem isn't totally up the ingredients in the recipe, I am already using a site that does that for me.

My question is how much of the carbs from the cooked onions "leak" out into the broth? I don't eat the onions used to make the broth. I have tried searching for onion broth or stock without much success.

You know Daytona I don't notice that carbs leak into broth. For dinner tonight I made Roast, potatoes, celery, and onions that had cooked all day in the crockpot. I ate a piece of the roast, the onion (small, put in there whole), and some celery. I only had a 6pt change in my BG from first bite to two hrs later.

Most of the restaurant recipes have from 10-25g of carbs per serving. That could come from the onions and the croutons usually put on top of them and maybe sugar added to their broth.

Thanks Marsha, you are right that I really need to test just the soup on its own. I just find it hard to eat something that isn't terribly filling on its own and wait 2 hours before eating my fat.

I am assuming that it won't affect me much but I hate guessing. Once I test, I'll just divide the spike by 3 and use that for the carb count. Fingers crossed!

I guess if you're worried about glucose in the broth, you could let cool to room temp and stick test it.

Just a thought

I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who still does this. My husband looks at me like I am completely insane when I stick test a liquid.

BH did too the first time I did it. But when my meter said "hi" she changed her mind quick. Now she practically insists I test drinks at restaurants. Lol
