Why don't the macros add up in certain foods?
Hey guys! Check out the picture.
The percentages we see are the assumed macros in a given food (in this case that food is hummus). But when you type in say, “1 cup of hummus”, the ratio in GRAMS of fat/carb/pro for 1 cup of hummus doesn’t equal those percentage macros.
Any amount of hummus SHOULD be 41%/45%/14% fat/carb/pro. But when I type in 1 cup, it says that 1 cup is comprised of 21g/33.2g/17.6g fat/carb/pro, which equals 29%/46%/24% in the macros. Those percentages aren’t the same! But they should be! What am I missing?
