    Do they count towards net carbs?

    I had ordered some breakfast bars etc from low carb megastore and the bars said they were 1g net carb, but on closer inspection, they had 13g carbs, 7g fiber and 5g sugar alcohol (polyols).

    So by my reckoning, they have 6g net carbs? Or am I wrong... its so confusing :confused:

    polyols don't count but can make you have 'bathroom' issues if you have to many.
