Just something for those that are learning Carb counting for meals. If a product has more than 5 gms of fiber you can subtract that number from the total carb count to get your carb gms. For example: Fiber one cereal, 1/2 cup serving = 24 gms of carbohydrate and 10 grams of fiber. You would subtract the fiber and your net carbs per 1/2 cup would be 14 gms of carbs. Also if you purchase sugar free products with sugar alcohols on the label, you can subtract 1/2 the gms of sugar alcohol from the total carb grams to get the net carbs. Net carbs refers to the amount of carbohydrate in the product that will affect the blood sugar. The reason that you only subtract half of the sugar alcohol is because some have a zero effect such as erythritol and some have a high effect such as mallitol.
Note: this whole thing is much easier if you consume whole foods then you don't have to worry about what's in a food you just wash it, cook it if needed and eat it. :)
