How Many Carbs In Spaghetti Squash?

In one cup of Spaghetti Squash, there are about 10 grams of carbs and 2 grams of that total are considered to be dietary fiber that is beneficial to the system.

Spaghetti Squash is a pale yellow or ivory colored vegetable that produces its seed in the late autumn and early winter season.  It is a uniquely textured Squash, that when cooked, offers Spaghetti like flesh that can be pulled away in strands, much like long strands of noodles. This is where the Squash gets its name.

There are not many carbs in Spaghetti Squash and as a result, the vegetable is known for being a low-carb dish.  This variety of Squash is considered to be low in calories and carbohydrates because many Squash types contain more natural sugar, and as a result offer more carbs.

Most people eat Spaghetti Squash cooked, however, you can wash the Squash and cube it for salads or other dishes.  It can be eaten raw and yields slightly less calories when eaten this way.  Raw is better when it comes to carb content because of the reaction to the release of sugar when cooked.

If you are trying to keep your carb count low and still want to enjoy Spaghetti Squash on your diet plan, keep the portion size small and think about eating it raw.
