Why are some dietary fiber counted as calories (Ezekiel bread/Oatmeal) and not others?

Can't find Cronometer's rational for counting dietary fiber as calories. Can't be soluble vs. insoluble because oatmeal has both and both counted as calories. Yet, some foods that I enter (can't remember which) exclude dietary fiber as calories.

    Hi @Rinny ,
    It sounds like these foods may have the nutrients entered incorrectly. I would recommend reporting an issue on the food that isn't working.

    On the web version, you can report an issue with your specific food by right clicking on the food entry in your diary to select View/Edit Selected Food. Then select the settings icon in the top right corner, and select Report Issue.

    If you notice an error in the Add Serving dialog, you can click # of Listed Nutrients, then select the settings icon in the top right corner, and select Report Issue.

    In the mobile app version, tap "# listed nutrients" and select the "!" icon in the top right corner.
