Hi, I have been looking over several web sites to get a straight answer and it seems like they are all wrong.
On a Nutrition Facts (food label) all the sites are stating that fiber is a part of total carbohydrates. However, if you would subtract fiber grams from the grams of total carbohydrates (since we do not digest fiber and would not receive calories from it) the total calories per serving are incorrect. The calories per serving are only correct with the grams of carbohydrate that are shown.
Therefore, it seems as though fiber should not be a portion of the total carbohydrate grams. Total carbohydrate grams seems to only include sugars and the unlisted starch.
Any clarification on this would help. Thanks
