Carbs in Dairy Products

Below is a list of the calorie, carb and protein counts for some of the most popular dairy products.

You can find more carb counts on the product package, in a carb counter book, or even just searching on the internet.

In general, full fat dairy foods will be much lower in carbohydrate than low fat or nonfat dairy foods.



Except for the yogurts, I've set the table up to be in 1 ounce serving sizes because I find it easier to calculate based on my actual consumption size. For instance, if I know the carb count for one ounce of cheese, than it's easy to just mutiply that number by the number of ounces I actually ate. So if I have an 6 ounce chunk of cheddar, I can multiply 1 gram of carb by 6 ounces, and know that I ate 6 grams of carb.
