the big companys are misleading the public by what they put on there "nutrition facts"
They do put there so called "ingredients" on there but it's usally at the bottom of the package. Thats The reason for the other carbohydrates/sugars/dietary fibers ...hence......covers there azz!
Maybe I'm wrong? I don't know how to measure carbs? other than to trust whats on the package! but thats just what I have always heard.
Actually, the 2000 calorie diet thing is used for computing percentages of daily intake, etc. It is NOT the same as the gram counts for carbs, fiber, etc. These are almost always given "per serving."
You can indeed reach or exceed 47 grams of carbs per serving of most breakfast cereals, especially when milk and (heaven forbid!) added sugar are figured in. Certainly it is an unusual cereal that delivers fewer than 30 or so grams per bowl just counting the cereal plus milk, not even any added sugars.
