    Hiya..Does anyone know how you work out the carbs in xanthan gum?

    I'd thought it was carb free....but then found this :

    Xanthan Gum

    Any ideas people?

    Do we take the fibre off the carbs or is it really that carby per 100g?

    :(

    hmm, I am pretty confused by those figures
    but on the livestrong website I found this:

    Nutrition Facts

    Amount per Serving
    Calories 30

    + thats an american label, so you minus the fibre from the carbs + so there are 0g net carbs. hope this is of use :)
