Default Where did the other 16 carb g's disappear to..!!?

Just for the heck of it I was looking at some Nutrition Facts on the back of several products. One of them had..

Total Carbohydrates 20g
Dietary Fiber 1g
Sugars 3g

Ahhhh.. so the question is:

Where did the other 16 carb g's disappear to..!!? No where else on the package is any of the other missing cg's listed.

I guess you just gotta count 'em, Breeze2 . . . and you prob'ly oughta count those 3g of sugars too, cuz they can deliver a nasty spike sometimes too! They do get us comin' & goin', don't they?!

But yeah, for carb counting purposes, you can subtract the dietary fiber from the total carbs, but anything else it's good to allow for - just so your meter doesn't get any unexpected surprises. Sorry, but no - they didn't disappear . . .

the sugars are included in the "TOTAL Carbohydrates"
Since you did not list the rest of the ingredients I'd say the other 16 carbs are in the (wheat, or potato or starch). sugar is NOT the only carb. as an example, any starch is a carb.
