Lately I’ve been coming across nutrition facts labels that I find very confusing.
Here in Canada our labels indicate total carbs, then below that fiber, sugar, etc.
The other day my wife and I found these ‘no added sugar’ hot chocolate packets. 6g total carbs, 6g of fiber. All good then, right? But right under fiber it says 3g of sugar (from the dehydrated milk).
Now, if there’s 6g of carbs, and 6g of fiber, would the 3g of sugar not make the packet 9g of total carbs? Or would I count 3g net carbs? I’m very confused by this.
Here’s another example from a different recipe;
TOTAL CARBS: 3.5g
NET CARBOHYDRATES: 2.5g
How can there be 4g of sugar but only 2.5 net carbs?
Please help me figure this out!
