I just realized today my brown rice nutrition facts don't even make sense...Am I right? Or am I just calculating it wrong?

http://www.unclebens.com/rice/ready-whole-grain-rice-whole-grain-brown.aspx

Carbs = 39g x 4 = 160 (rounded from 156)
Fats = 3g x 9 = 30 (rounded from 27)
Protein = 5g x 4 = 20

Total Calories = 210 and that's rounding up

There total calories says 240?

subtract the fiber in total carbs

subtract the fiber in total carbs

LOL that makes it even worse...Now I get 200 when I add it all up.

Its not bad, I've had that brand (buttery rice and roasted chicken, or something chickeny) before. Its like a small bowl full if you dump it out after cooking. I add extra butter to mine though.
