    Jules, I've found that carb counts vary, it depends on how its been processed, if its frozen it may be par boiled, cooking can change carb counts love. I'd go with the packaging.

    The book just gives general information an average if you like. Most food you buy these days has all the nutritional values listed on the packaging and this is what you should go by. 80g of frozen broccoli will have a different carb count to 80g of raw.
