Checking products for carb count?

I thought you had to subtract the fibre to get the net carbs? :confused: Sure I remember that from when I did Atkins.

So I would say 6g less the g of fibre if there are any.

This is true of american nutritional values as they catorgorise fibre as a carb (NUTTERS!), however in the UK fibre is not included in the carb count. Thus on English branded products you take the carb value.

If you use that website as its an American website Stephen then Yes you deduct fibre but all packaging including veg in the EU already has the fibre deducted, so if yr looking at the back of a pack of veg & the carbs say 3g per 100g then thats what you count you don't deduct the fibre on packaging.

But that site is great if you have no packaging for a product make sure you use the ECC count from that site. xxx
