No, it doesn't contain starch. Though glucose syrup (like corn syrup) is made from starch, the starch is broken down through hydrolysis into various sugars.
Sesame seeds, on the other hand....they contain starch. How much depends on whether they are hulled or not:
- unhulled sesame seeds, 100 grams = 5.8 grams starch
- hulled sesame seeds, 100 grams = 0.1 grams starch
Mind you,100 grams is a lot! A few sesame snaps won't have much starch at all. I find I can handle up to 5g starch in a day without triggering stiffness (though only 2g/day when I was first starting out on NSD).
Suspected SpA. HLA B27, xray, u/sound, blood tests all -ve. Ancient history of plantar fasciitis, SI joint pain, knee arthritis. Recent history of tendinitis, neck pain, debilitating finger pain and stiffness (especially mornings). No diagnosis, no meds.
