    Do we go for carbs or
    dietary fibre or
    Sugar???

    You want to know the carb content - in the UK the fibre is already subtracted. So I look at carb grams per 100g or per serving. And I don't touch anything with sugar as an ingredient. HTH :)

    Yes, by EU law, anything produced in the EU countries already has the fibre subtracted, anything elseespecially American produce you need to subtract the fibre
