    I'm wondering why the sugar grams and the carbohydrate grams are listed separately...they're all carbs!!

  • Midwest Living

    Lynne, we list both total carbs and carbs from sugar because some people (such as those who have diabetes) need this info for dietary exchanges.

  • Lynne G

    I'm diabetic and this is not clear as to whether carbs include the sugars or if these are separate...I count carbs and I include sugar...not separate it out...

  • Midwest Living

    The carb count does include the sugar, so total carbs per serving on these are 21. Hope that helps!

    I think, then, you need to state that that is the case...
