    I am a bit confused here, I have seen posts on here about how the UK subtracts fibre from the carb count, however I see labels that don't show fibre and those that do show fibre. Should I subtract fibre from the carb count where I see it listed separately on the label in the UK?

    Thank you!!!

    Steph, all EU produced products have to show the carbs with the fibre removed. However, some do show the fibre count as well, but just ignore that, don't take it off again.
