What is meant by the term “net carbs”? What is the net carb content of this product? Why are sugars a part of this product formula?
The net carb content reflects the amount of total carbohydrate less dietary fiber and any sugar alcohols. The net carb content of this product is 20 grams per serving. Carbohydrates are an important nutrient in a well-balanced diet and this product provides both complex carbohydrates and simple sugars. A common misconception is that in order to lose weight a person must greatly restrict, if not eliminate, carbohydrates from their diet. Carbohydrates provide glucose (through metabolism), the body’s preferred energy-yielding substrate. This product contains sugars (fructose) to provide a quick source of energy. This is especially important for products that are used in energy-restricted diets because your brain works best on glucose. Regardless of whether you use this product at breakfast or another meal, the added sugars in this product give your brain a quick source of energy from sugars with complex carbohydrates to help keep you feeling energized until the next time you eat.
