It is possible that sugar alcohols or "stealth" fibers are part of the issue. Remember that sugars and fiber are not a nutrition labeling requirement so how things are "captured" in the tracker according to labeling can be a bit of an unknown especially on member entered information in the tracker.

Here are some articles with more on net carbs, stealth fiber and tracking sugar in case you have not seen them already.

Why can't I track sugar on my SparkPeople nutrition tracker?

Hope that helps.

I track my net carbs in my nutrition tracker, but today I noticed it was miscalculating today's net carbs. As of right now I have 28 grams total carbs and 11 grams fiber, which should be 17 grams net carbs, but the tracker is showing 21 grams net carbs--only calculating breakfast and lunch fiber and not dinner fiber against the total.

Happy are those who dream dreams and are ready to pay the price to make them come true.
