Yeah I just didn't know which carb reading to go by. Thanks
just the carbs bit on UK foods, the book is USA and they break down their carbs into sugar/fiber i think so we just count the total carbs
yep spot on, EU count just carbs, everywhere else subtract the fibre.

Thank you all for your help, that site is useful :)

So do you extract the fibre content for everything or just the veg? :confused:
OK - so just I can be clear on this - for me!

The label (UK) says - 6g Carbs / 100 - I therefore weigh 100g and hey presto I can count 6g.

The Label (Non UK) says - 6g Carbs of which 3g is fibre / 100 and therefore I weigh 100g and only count 3g...

Am I close?


Yummy mummy to be!
Almost spot on Brian!

EU labels are the same as UK, US ones add fibre in their carb count.
