Taco shells, corn taco shells, 1 medium Corn Taco Shell has about 8 grams of carbohyrate (carbohydrates) and 2 grams of sugar.

The fiber content is 0 gram per serving and the net carb content is 4 grams per serving.

This makes a total of 5 grams of fiber and 9 grams of net carbs for a medium corn taco shell.

**Taco Shells Carbohydrate Facts**

One medium Corn Taco Shell has about 8 grams of carbohydrate. The total carbohyrate, sugar, fiber and estimated net carbs (non-fiber carbs) for a variety of types and serving sizes of Taco Shells is shown below.

The “carbohyrate” is calculated by multiplying the grams of carbohydrate by 1.04, as follows:

Carbohydrates = Carbohydrates*1.04 + Sugars

The “total carbohyrate” is calculated by multiplying the grams of carbohydrate by 2.26, as follows:

Total Carbohyrate = (Carbohydrates*2.26 + Sugars)

If we divide the total carbohyrates by the total carbohydrate grams (8g), we get the net carbs per serving size as follows:

Net Carbs per Serving Size = Total Carbs/Total Carbohydrate – Sucralose * 3

Using these values, we can determine the net carbohyrates as follows:

Net Carbs per Serving Size = 8g/28g – 0.095g – 0.088g – 0.078g – 0.077g – 0.069g – 0.068g – 0.067g – 0 totaled 7 g

The following table provides a summary for each type of Taco Shells and the net carbohyrates which result from its consumption:

Subtopic: How Many Calories Should I Eat?

Keywords: carbohyrates, sugars, fiber and net carb totals

Text: Most people live by the “carb-per-calorie” rule which states that one gram of carbohydrate equals 1 calorie. This is great if you are short of calories when it comes to your daily intake because it will allow you to eat as many calories as necessary without too much discomfort. But if you have some way to track your intake (such as a food scale), or if you want to know with greater precision what foods contain the most calories, this rule breaks down.

For example: One medium corn taco shell has about 8 grams of carbohydrate; 1 medium corn taco shell contains about 10 calories; 2 medium corn taco shells contain about 20 calories; 3 medium corn tacos contain 25 calories and 4 medium corn tacos contain 30 calories. So based on this table we would need to eat 2 tacos each containing 25 calories in order to gain 20 grams of carbohydrate (which equals one gram). However, the number 6 quart bag contains 160 grams (which is 80+80=160), so 1/6th should be eaten at least initially in order to achieve 20 grams (for now we will use the equivalent of one gram). How many tacos should we eat each day in order to gain 20 grams? The answer is most likely quite a bit more than 2 per day but less than 4 per day. This is due mostly to being hungry between meals so eating more than two would not be ideal. If you thought this was easy you haven’t had any tortillas yet!!! You can find more details about how food works here . If you are still looking for confirmation that the “carb-per-calorie” rule doesn’t work well for us see this post . We would need to eat 3 tacos each containing 40 calories etc., in order for them all to equal one gram each (1g = 1 calorie). Since we aren’t eating 3 tacos a day with 40 calories each then we can start looking at other ways of achieving our goals that don’

There have been a number of posts about the carbohyrates in taco shells. I’ve updated them and added a few more.

Here’s one from the first post:

So, what are the carbohyrates? In order to eat a lot of tacos, you need to eat a lot of food. A lot of carbs in general are bad for you, so it nice if we can avoid those with our tacos. The problem is that every time we eat these, there’s some kind of measurement involved…

Here’s another from the second post:

OK I can see this question has been asked many times before and is probably still being asked now. The simplest way to check how much sugar is in a particular taco shell, is to count up how many grams of sugar there are in one serving (for example 1/4 cup = 4g). For example 2/3 cup = 4g . So 1/4 cup (6g) has 0g sugar, which means it has 20% less sugar than 2/3 cup (9g), which has 50% less sugar than 3/4 cup (15g) which has 100% less sugar than 1/2 cup (15g). Similar rules apply for all other types of carbohyrates.

This post also contains an overview table showing the total carbohyrate, sugar and fiber content as well as serving sizes appropriate for various types and serving sizes of taco shells.
