Default Soy Nuts Question

Hi all-
Quick question--does anyone know why the soy nuts are restricted vs. the chocolate shake which is unresticted? Both have the same number of gross carbs (9g).
Thanks!

Restricted vs non-restricted is determined by NET carbs (subtract the dietary fiber, which is not digested). However if you are referring to the BBQ or Garlic soy nuts, they are unrestricted. Were you told they were restricted?

Chocolate shake: 9g carbs - 2g dietary fiber = 7g net carbs (unrestricted)
BBQ/garlic onion soy nuts: 9g carbs - 4g dietary fiber = 5g net carbs (unrestricted)

Are you maybe confusing the soy NUTS with the soy PUFFS? The Soy Puffs (Chocolate, Peanut Butter, Lemon, Apple Cinnamon) are ALL restricted items.

No, I mean the bbq and garlic soy nuts. I was told they were restricted and was surprised -- when I look at the net carbs they are lower than other unrestricted.

So you use these as unrestricted? If this is true, this will save me this week on a long flight!!

I was told they were restricted, too. I use the Ideal To Go website for my food and they list them as restricted. http://www.idealtogo.com/idealproducts.taf

If they are not restricted, that would ROCK.

Hmmm...yeah that doesn't make a lot of sense, I personally have never used the soy nuts myself so I had only glanced at the labels.

The one thing that I noticed is that the soy nuts are higher in fat (60 calories from fat out of 140 total calories - higher than 30% of total calories), and lower in protein (11g protein, versus an average of 15g protein in most IP products). That might justify making them a "restricted" item.

I was also told that they were restricted. I guess I will have to ask again.

Maybe someone with corporate contacts can dig into this? Get the reasoning behind the restriction if the carbs don't make sense?

This is a reasonable guess. I'm willing to go along with this theory.
