First of all, there are several methods for calculating NetCarbs. We present the 3 most important ones here.
Sugar reduction alone is not enough, we generally want to reduce everything that quickly appears in the blood as glucose, similar to sugar, and thus overloads your insulin secretion.
12g carbon dyrate
3g net carbohydrates
(For Ketogenic diet see more rigorous calculation below).
Many companies try to reduce sugar and use raw materials that are not called sugar, but inside your body they act just like sugar. That is why the NetCarbs calculation is so important. The total effect on the blood sugar level can be tested relatively easily with a blood glucose meter. Or you can rely on the glycemic index, which is a number that expresses the effect on blood sugar. The lower, the better. e.g. sugar has a GI of 65, white bread GI 75 a Chinese cabbage has only 12. Our main sweetener erythritol has even more or less 0.
Due to carbohydrates in all our eating habits, the body really only knows one source of energy. Namely sugar. The ketogenic diet, however, forces your body to switch to the energy source fat, which can have many great effects on your energy system. However, this means eating no more than 10g of carbohydrates per day per 1,000kcal consumed. That's about 20-30g per person/day.
Since every gram of carbohydrate should really be looked at closely again here we have an exact breakdown of our NetCarbs calculation with the strict Keto NetCarbs calculation.
1 Bar NEOH = 4g Keto NetCarbs**
(40% of 2g maltitol)
(20% of 1g xylitol)
1.6g of tapioca starch
1.4g of sugar from the raw materials
(cocoa beans, whey powder, etc.)
0g of erythritol
4g Keto Net Carbs
Based on Kcal:
To calculate the NetCarbs there is also the possibility to take the calories and subtract everything that does not appear in the blood as glucose. What remains are the carbohydrates:
In concrete terms, this looks as follows for NEOH: (in general: 1g fat = 9kcal, 1g protein = 4kcal, 1g fiber = 2kcal, 1g NetCarb = 4kcal).
Total calories NEOH: 98kcal
Calories from fat: 36.4kcal
Calories from protein: 30kcal
Calories from dietary fiber: 6kcal
Calories from glycerin*: 9.8kcal
15,8kcal from NetCarbs
15.8 kcal divided by 4kcal/g NetCarb=.
3.95g Net Carbs
THE KETO DIET
It is also worth mentioning that dietary fiber has a very positive effect on the glycemic index. In NEOH there is 10% fiber, which is a lot. These 3g are also in the perfect balance between pre- and probiotic cultures to challenge all parts of your digestive system equally. (see NEOHpedia: Oligofructose and Inulin).
