1 cup of zucchini contains less than 1g of carbohydrates and 0g of starch, while 1 cup of squash contains 40g of carbs and 33g of starch.
Unfortunately we can’t list every single vegetable on the list (this would be quite an extensive list) so there may be some that have been missed yes. A quick google should tell you if a vegetable is starchy or not, failing that flick us a message and we’ll help you out!
I’m wondering if the nutritionist may not be Australian.
This is what we call squash (link failed), its yellow and not hard on the outside.
It’s more like a zucchini than a pumpkin in texture although they all grow on a vine.
“Not all types of squash are counted as starch in your diet. Zucchini and summer squash are non-starchy, versus acorn, pumpkin, and butternut squashes, which are high in starch.”
The Food Guide is referring to butternut squash.
Apologies for the confusion, we’ll see if we can get this better clarified on the Food Guides.
