Q: How is the Eat Fit King Cake only 4.5 Net Carbs when the label says 18 grams carb per serving?
A: Net Carbs are calculated by subtracting fiber and Swerve from Total Carbs. • 18 grams total carb – minus 2 grams fiber – minus 11.5 grams Swerve => 4.5 net carbs per serving.

More detail: Carbs have 4 calories per gram. But sugar alcohols like erythritol (the main sweetener in Swerve) have less than 0.02 calories per gram, which is why it’s subtracted from total carbs on label.
