Sugars/carbs on label???

    Simple question. When you see the carbs and sugars separately on a food label, are sugars factored into the carbs? I ask because I feel like I've seen labels where it showed more sugars than carbs, which makes no sense. Makes me question of you're supposed to combine the two to get total carbs when you're factoring in your macros?

    The sugar is included in the total carbs.

    Grams of sugar, on a nutrition label, don't always equal up to grams of carbohydrates. Fiber is listed under carbs on a label too, for instance.
