if you're making broth and watching sodium [ie using little to no of the stuff] i wouldn't use that actual entry as it has a ton of salt added.

Below is a copy/paste from SP's Data Base for Vegetable Broth:

Nutrition Facts
Vegetable Broth
Serving Size: 1 cup
Amount Per Serving

Calories 15.0
Total Fat 0.0 g
Saturated Fat 0.0 g
Polyunsaturated Fat 0.0 g
Monounsaturated Fat 0.0 g
Cholesterol 0.0 mg
Sodium 940.0 mg
Potassium 0.0 mg
Total Carbohydrate 3.0 g
Dietary Fiber 0.0 g
Sugars 2.0 g
Protein 0.0 g

I would be counting the broth as a drink only, that has some nutritional benefit to it - not as a vegetable. If Diabetes is a factor, then I imagine the carbs would be included in your daily carb allowance.

Hi If I make a broth with vegetables and then remove the vegetables and just eat the broth. Do I count the vegetables as carbohydrate.
