I got a package of “carb control” tortillas. They are high fiber and have a decent amount of protein, but the nutrition info doesn’t make sense.
On the front, it says 7 g net carbs.
Then on the back,
Fat: 2.5 g 25 calories
Total carb: 18 g
Fiber: 11 g
Protein: 5 g
Now if I add the fat (25 cal), 5 grams of protein and 7 grams non fiber carbs I get:
25 + 5 x 4 + 7 x 4= 73 calories.
I assume that they either wrongly calculated the 110 calories by using the total grams of carb, which would give 117 (OK considering rounding off here and there)
Either that or a lab determined the calories by combustion, in which case the fiber burns and releases calories like any other carb.
Just wondering, is the label wrong, or am I missing something?
