Low Carb Vegetable List

The list below is a complete list of carbs in vegetables, showing most vegetables whether they are low or high in carbs.

A general rule for knowing what vegetables are low in carbs is if it’s grown above ground it will be low carb. If it’s grown below ground then it is a high carb vegetable and to be avoided. If it’s green and leafy, they will be a good low carb option is another quick guide.

I’ve shown the list alphabetically but you can search for something specific, sort, and organize the low carb vegetable list to customize your needs. If you are looking for a vegetable and it’s not on the list, let me know and I’ll add to it. While tomatoes are technically a fruit, I’ve kept them on the vegetable list.

The data comes from the USDA nutrient database in 100-gram quantities, so you can rest assured the information is reliable – even if there may be a few surprises in it.

The vegetables are listed below in 100-gram quantities for easy comparison.
