    Net Carbs?

    Have you ever seen these on Protein Bars?

    Like it'll have 21g of Carbs but it'll say Net Carbs 3g.

    Do you count the first or second number? I'm counting the first but was curious on your thoughts on this industry's practice..

    This came about due to the new FDA regulations. Before some of the ingredients in protien bars did not count toward the macronutrient profile or calorie content of the bar. As far as I know it is the exact same bar as before but with a new label (met-rx and designer whey were the two I have noticed). Don't remember exactly which substances were not being counted originally.
