    Hello All!

    I have a question regarding calculating carbs?

    I have a pack of WW Butterscotch Drops...

    They have per box:

    Carbs 36.3g
    Of which Sugars 0.2g
    Polyols 36.1g

    What do I need to count as the carbs??!

    Sorry if that sounds like a silly Q - but read somewhere that you deduct the Polyols (and fibre) from the Carb total?

    Help!

    Thaanks :eek:)
