View Full Version : Protein, fat, carbs, and what?

I was looking at a few labels and was wondering what makes up to the extra weight in food.

for example, my tuna in oil:

per 100g
Protein is 17.8g
fat is 18.4g
carbs are less than 1g
= 37.2g

what happened to the other 62.8 grams per 100g ???

Since we typically (not always) eat matter thats been living at one point (plant and animal) and all of this matter is made of cells and these cells are typically full of water - my guess is some of that "missing" weight is water.
