Take, for instance, this stuff.
If fat has 9 calories, and carbs and protein have 4...then this doesn't add up.
Shouldn't it have only 83 calories?
I know that they can legally label something as "0" of something (protein, fat, or carbs) if it's under a certain amount. However, this would mean that if those extra calories are actually carbs, this cheese stick has 1.75 carbs!
I'm not disputing that a 21g serving of sharp cheddar can have 1.75 grams of carbs...but I don't understand how they can label it as 0 carbs. This is, of course, assuming that there isn't also extra fat and protein in the stick they aren't labeling.
Does anyone have any answers?
