Broken: Flatouts package fiber information

FlatbreadJason S. points out:

On a package of Flatouts, made by, there is a statement on the package that says it contains 8 grams of fiber.

However, on the nutritional panel of the Flatouts package, it shows only 7 grams of fiber.

The serving size is 1 Flatout, so I guess I'd have to eat about a few bites of a second Flatout to get my 8 grams of fiber!


_@_v - my guess is one figure was rounded up and the other was rounded down...

7g of "dietary" fiber, maybe the extra 1g comes from "filler" fiber.

You should write to the company and complain. Maybe you'd get some free Flatouts. ;D

Maybe you get that extra 1g if you eat the bag?

Probably, the figure was around 7.5g of fiber. The FDA required the company to round down, but for the front of the bag, they wanted to round up.

Dietary fiber is a different unit, like the fluid ounce. 1g dietary fiber = 8/7g fiber. It was created to fool consumers.

BTW, if you don't know already, I'm kidding.

P.S. lol James! Still, that bag also includes a lot of fat and plastic. I wouldn't eat it if I were u.
