Why don't the labels add up?
I have noticed lately that many of the nutrition labels on my food don't add up correctly to the total amount of calories. For example suppose a food has 5 protein, 10 carbs, 5 fat, the food based on this should have 105 calories......
5 protein x 4 = 20 cals
10 carbs x 4 = 40 cals
5 fat x 9 = 45
I have noticed this with cantaloupe, and a few nutrition bars, the calories are less than what it should add up to be, anyone know why?
