Something that iv’e been wondering for a day or two, coming under the ‘Diet’ section of the forum.
Since fibre does not get used for energy, due to inability to digest and absorb, does it’s energy content still get added to calorie count on food labels?
Also on packaging where it lists fibre, is the fibre inclusive in the total carbohydrates or kept seperate?
I’ll use for example Helga’s Rich Wholegrain bread;
diet fibre 13.6
So the question is, is hte energy total inclusive of those 13.6g of fibre we don’t utilize?
and is the 21.4g of carbs inclusive of the fibre?
Like i said just something iv’e been wondering for a while when looking up nutritional values of foods.
