How Many Carbs Are In A SlimFast Keto Fat Bomb Bar?
From the nutritional composition above we can see that a SlimFast Keto Fat Bomb bar contains 15 grams of carbohydrates.
It’s important to note thought that this is the raw amount of carbs. Indeed among this 15 grams of carbs there are 9 grams of dietary fibers. Dietary fibers are the part of a plant your body can’t digest. That means these 9 grams won’t be assimilated by your body and should not be included in your daily carb count.
On top of that there are 3 grams of sugar alcohols. Sugar alcohols are a type of carbs that are sweet like sugars, but less sweet thought and more important they contain less calories. Also while their name contain the word alcohol they do not contain ethanol, so they are not what we typically call
booze, I mean alcohol 😆😎. As such these 3 grams shouldn’t be included in your daily carb count.
Overall we should calculate the carbs that count toward your daily carb count as this: 15 grams total carbs – 9 grams dietary fibers – 3 grams sugar alcohols = 3 grams net carbs. This is this the number, 3 grams, that should be counted towards your daily carb count as this is the net amount of carbs that your body will assimilate and metabolize in glucose to source the energy it needs to properly function throughout the day.
