    im going to ring them later and speak to them, they are the first thing listed in the zero carb section of their very popular site, and in the product info there they say zero carb, probably cost more to send them back lol

    you have to deduct the polyols from the carbs , they do not affect blood sugar , hence 0 g net carbs

    Polyols do give you a very runny tummy though. Recommended no more than 15-20g of them a day.
