the calorie count on the package/label already takes fibre into account.
EDIT: also, you’re in the US right? in that case…your nutrition labels always list carbs with fibre already subtracted from the count.
i.e. Broccoli at 4g CHO and 2g fibre, is 6g actually total carbs with 4g effective ones.
I did not know this, and I think it might also be a false. From looking at this mission low carb wraps, which advertise 7g net carbs on the front, and their nutritional info which says 18g carbs and 11g fiber, leads me to conclude that the nutritional info cho is not effective cho, but total cho.
Not claiming I know the answer, but either mission is lying on the front of their packaging or the above quote is false. [/quote]
It’s not a ‘blanket’ statement by any stretch. Its just that the FDA labeling law allows them to do what I mentioned.
When I get products, I always calculate the calorie count.
e.g. listed cals - (fat9 + pro4) = # of effective carbs.
Try it. It’ll work out to around 7g cho for mission lc tortillas.
