    I'm struggling to work out the net carbs per 100g of this.

    Here's a photo of the nutrition info:

    It doesn't say the total carbs, just the fibre (23g) and "other carbohydrate" (2g). So does this mean it's 2g net carbs per 100g?

    Thanks!

    Where you getting it from - Tesco seem to have stopped doing it. Sainsbury's do it apparently but a lot more expensive than Tesco was.

    Thanks,

    I get it from Morrisons.

    Ok, so 2g net carbs. That's good! Wonder why some of the carb counters seem to list it as a lot more?

    My Tesco had it last week, then all of a sudden - gone! Going to loaf to Holland Barrat and see if they do it. Otherwise will have to buy a grinder methinks.

    You can buy it direct from Prewetts but you have to post an order form with a cheque and then wait over a week......................it is £1.75 per pack plus postage but postage is free if you spend over £20 I think. Seriously thinking of doing it this way as cannot live without my mims now!

    Tried Sainsbo's yesterday and they don't have it either! Bought some seeds instead and will try grinding them in my liquidiser or food processor..............

    Julian Graves do both golden and brown linseed - ready ground or as seeds - I buy there and grind mine at home using a Krups coffee/nut grinder. Cost me £19 on Amazon.co.uk (free postage) and paid for itself in no time!
