[quote=“BlackAdder”]Bingo! Here you go…each individual ingredient portion is listed in size and nutritional information.

I still don’t believe that covers the OPs exact requirements. The serving size is listed in grams, but not each ingredient portion in grams. (unless you are talking about that ‘exchange value’ thing in the right column)
Honestly, if the the nutritional value infomation is not enough to figure it out, then I believe anything found online might not exactly conform to what is served in Taiwan anyway. But, if you think about it, when I go to Subway, the chicken is allocated by estimate anyway, so this will vary from the official figures, but also everytime you go to subway. Even if the restaurant uses those pottles as some do, the amount of meat will vary. What about the squirt of mustard/Mayo? How much is that EXACTLY?
I know that you have various reasons for wanting/needing to do this, but if you really are that concerned about it (to that level of detail) then I suggest a few things:
- Carry your scales everytime. (oh what a joy that would be). Perhaps you could get them to put each ingredient on some paper so you can weigh it before it goes on.
- Don’t get other people to make your food.
- Estimate the portions as best as you can, based on info available, and forget about being so precise. There are too many variables I reckon.
I have a really good friend who is a diabetic. He is/was the picture of health when he got it (not overweight, very active etc) and he has always integrated very well with non-diabetics in such a way that many people have no idea. He studied a lot of nutritional information and has a good idea what is good for him and what is not based on experience, taste and color (would you believe).
Obviously this is not perfect, but it’s about as close he can get while having a normal life.
Even weighing stuff is not going to be perfect depending on preparation techniques that vary and sauces etc. The other thing is, even if you manage to determine sub values as you want, then what about other foods? Weigh them all too?
Diabetes is a terrible disease, and I pray I never have to deal with it. I hope you can find your own way of dealing with it in your life. Your post reminds me of what my friend went thru at the beginning.
