I've posted before about Juanita's Mexican Style Hominy. Judy Barnes Baker, who wrote Carb Wars, said that she had checked with the company about the very low carb count (10 total carbs per half cup, 4 grams of fiber, so 6 net carbs) and they assured her that it was the result of testing and was correct. Someone recently asked her again, she asked the company again, and they, again, insisted it was right. Then someone who didn't believe it convinced the company to retest it (the original testing was 60 years ago!) and the numbers came out very different. Now they're saying 19 total carbs, 3 grams of fiber, for a net of 16 carbs per half cup! A huge difference!
Anyway, wanted to pass that on since I have recommended the hominy in the past. It's a shame, too, because it's cheap!
