    Mickey, that link was to an onion recipe, which makes far more sense than for mushrooms to be high carb. Was that really the recipe you meant to link?

    Onions have always had a fair amount of sugar content, but it mostly comes out when they are roasted or sauteed. I am not sure what the content is for raw onions. I do think you have to eat a fair amount of them in one go for it to matter, and I am not sure that they have simple sugars, or carbs that have to convert. Here's what one site says.carb counts for onions

Maybe I can find more info of a scientific nature for you.


    I will continue in my quest to limit the amounts and types of sugars and while I will google too...is ok to spell it out like am 5 years old too

    I usually saute them than add a good quality balsamic vinegar, but didnt know eating them raw would be high in sugar too!

    SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much to learn!!

    WHOO HOO
