Official Answer

The general rule of thumb is that 15g of Carbohydrates represents about 1 diabetic serving. Depending on your diet, a dietitian can evaluate the daily amount of carbs you need in a given day.

There is great information on this website that outlines specific serving sizes for each food group. This can give you information to understand portion size.
