Carbs in Espresso???
@AMurena Hi there!! It could depend on which tracker you use, the amount of coffee & what product you are you describe as Cold Brew Coffee, as they are all not the same!! 😊
When just thinking about coffee, an ounce of espresso has just half a gram of carbs, while an 8 ounce cup of plain brewed coffee is 0 carbs. When I get cold brew coffee at Starbucks, if it is just 8 ounces, it says 0 carbs on their label & it is just that coffee, & in that there may be trace carbs, but they don't have to report that less than 1 carb on the label. Stok cold-brew has 2 carbs according to My fitness Pal as well as Stok nutritional labels. When you look at the ingredients listed, some cold brews say the have flavorings in them, & while it may or may not have some "sugar" in it, they sometimes have carbs. Other products for example I used to love to drink OMilk's Cold-Brew Coffee with Almond Milk that has no sugar in it, but it has 8 carbs in an 8 ounce jar. Some trackers round up for less than a carb (depending on size of the drink), & others round down. When I deal with less than 1 carb items, I stay consistent usually rounding up, & avoiding any possible troubles as I have T2 diabetes. 😀
So the bottom line is read ingredient/nutrition labels & use that info in your tracker & pick what you are going to do about things with less than 1 carb & stay consistent in your application, that way you always know where you stand! 😊
Good luck to you, & all the best to you too!!! 😀 😀 😀 😀
