When we had a diabetes class they mentioned the above 5 grams of fiber dividing it by 2. I've been doing that for quite some time now. Good article!

Thank you for the information. I think the USDA needs to regulate standards for all foods. What are we paying them for? just like most government agencies. So much work, so many workers and an unstable political climate. The average tax payer (you and I) are forgotten whilst the spend time complaining and covering their azz they accomplish little or no work for us. Advertising seems to me to be all lies falling far beyond "puffing" (which is legal). Sometimes this confusion is detrimental to consumers. This is what we pay the govt. for "to keep us safe"

How does SP track net carbs -- it's on optional nutrient to add to the food tracker

Keep in mind the following: It is in the US (only, I think?) that the carbs need to be subtracted to get your net carbs. In Europe, and Oz, and maybe other countres, fibre is already subtracted on the nutrition label.
