Net Carbs (carb/fiber)
So in this post http://www.marksdailyapple.com/coconut-flour/
Mark talks about net carbs, saying that 10g of carbs, with 9g of fiber for the coconut flour gives you a net carb of 1g.
My question is: does this not apply to all carbs? Including fruit?
It does apply to all carbs. But you need to be really careful when reading labels, as they really do try to trick you.
Sometimes they will say:
So you would assume net absorbed carbohydrates are 10g right?
Well not all the time. Sometimes that carbohydrates figure IS the total carbs - the Fiber already! (i.e Total Carbs = 20g; Carbs 15g; Fiber 5g)
But, where does that leave sweet fruits, for example: bananas. High carb and sugar content, high fiber content as well.
When you say high fiber? A banana is about 27g Total Carbohydrates and about 3g Fiber. Thats still a net carb intake of 24g
Wow, I guess you're right, even with berries.
