Default Net Carbs ?

Does anybody know if the carb counts of food are net carbs ? Have they already subtracted the fiber ?

Thanks

I am not sure if I interpreted your question correctly but below is a sample nutrition lable from an Orange.
Nutrition Facts
Amount Per Serving
Calories 61.6
Calories from Fat 1.3

Fat 0.16 g 0 %
Saturated Fat 0.02 g 0 %
Polyunsaturated Fat 0.033 g
Monounsaturated Fat 0.03 g
Cholesterol 0.0 mg 0 %
Sodium 0.0 mg 0 %
Potassium 237.1 mg 7 %
Carbohydrate 15.4 g 5 %
Dietary Fiber 3.1 g 13 %
Protein 1.2 g 2 %
Alcohol 0.0 g

The 15.4g of total carbohydrates includes 3.1g of fiber.

Hope this helps.

FitDay does not subtract fiber from total carbs, giving you net carbs. But I wish they would.

FitDay PC tracks net carbs:

Carbs vs Fiber?
