Carbohydrates are calculated based on the following tests and their respective method references: Moisture (method is matrix dependent), Ash (AOAC 923.03), Fat by gas chromatography (AOAC 996.06) or by hydrolysis/extraction (AOAC 933.05; 922.06; 948.15; 925.32; 950.54; 905.02; 920.111; 945.48G; 920.115F; 932.06; 920.09; 952.06), Protein (AOAC 968.06) and, optionally, Insoluble and Soluble Dietary Fiber (AOAC 991.43 or 2011.25) and Sugar Alcohols (internally developed method).
Carbohydrates are determined by the following calculation:
Carbohydrates = 100 – (% Ash) – (% Total Fat) – (% Moisture) – (% Protein)
Calorie adjustments for the fiber adjusted value requires testing for Insoluble/Soluble Fiber (AOAC 991.43 or 2011.25).
Calorie adjustments for the 2020 value requires testing for Insoluble/Soluble Fiber (AOAC 991.43 or 2011.25) and/or Sugar Alcohols (internally developed method).
