So I used CarbManager to scan some heavy whipping cream:


CarbManager tells me it’s 0g carbs for a cup. Can someone who had Chronometer or another app weigh in on what their app says?

MyFitnessPal states per tablespoon

50 calories
5g fat
Zero carbs
Zero protein

Hope this helps :blush:

What’s on the ingredients list?

A cup of heavy whipping cream has about 7 net carbs. Anything that says zero is probably using the tablespoon serving size, which is rounded down to zero.

I’ve just been letting it record as 0 when I log, since it’s mostly fat. I’m thinking of trying a fat fast (I want autophagy, but don’t exactly have the weight to spare).

Even double cream in the UK has 2.6g of carbs per 100 ml so I find it hard to believe that HWC which has less fat has fewer carbs,
Dodgy US serving sizes I guess.

I have been using the ‘Lose it’ app for the last year.
Here’s what mine says for 1 cup of cream.

That is not correct.

It’s showing zero net carbs because it is multiplying the stats for a 1-tablespoon serving size to get the 1-cup size. But the 0.4+ grams of carbs in a 1-tablespoon serving size is rounded down to zero. So, instead of showing the 7 net carbs (i.e. 16 * 0.4+), it is showing 0 net carbs (i.e. 16 * 0).

Still, it’s a great ratio of fat to carbs!

I’m still getting zero for a Tbsp, my app I guess?


(Mom to kids who eat bacon & butter) #12

It’s still rounding down, as it’s less than 0.5g

My senza app will only measure this product in tbsp, but has 4 NC for 10 TBSP.
