    I might try Tesco's Zimara, because for me same as Shell said the packs I have seen have been quite high in carbs per 100g of product

    Some flaxseed/linseed packs are labelled like the USA so you would deduct the fibre from the carb count.

    The best way to tell is if the fibre is listed directly beneath the carbs... that means you need to deduct it from the carb total to get net carb figures. x
