Short answer: yes.

Longer answer: not necessarily. Some folks react negatively to ingesting even minute quantities of some plants, some plant substances. Many don’t.

Not talking about consuming multi-grams of carbs doing so. But, I agree, if you’ve got sensitivities to eating plant material approach with caution.
