Atkins Diet and sugar question....

For the induction phase, it says that stuff like ham, bacon, chicken broth, and sausages are ok. I'm also not supposed to eat any simple sugars at all for the induction phase. The problem is, I could never find any sugar-free ham, bacon, sausages, or chicken broth. All of them have atleast a tiny bit of sugar per serving. For example, I bought this chicken broth that has 1 gram of carbohydrates per 125 ml serving. Sugar is listed in the ingredient list.
Is 1 gram OK for the induction phase (of course, counting it to the 20 carb daily limit), or should I just avoid it?

You answered your own question. The one (or however many) gram counts toward the 20 allowed. per day.

Not complicated, really.
