    Whats wrong with these nutrition facts?

    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-...ain-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?

    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.
