Don’t understand how net carbs are being calculated?

If carbs - fiber = net carbs, then this math doesn’t make sense. Even subtracting the sugars doesn’t make sense. Anyone have an explanation for this?

    Hi Devinrose,

    We have two options for tracking Net Carbs: with or without sugar alcohols.
    You can change the calculation by going to: Settings > Targets > Macronutrient Targets > Tracking Carbs as

    If sugar alcohols are not shown in your nutrient targets, you can add them, if you like! Head back over to: Settings > Targets > Nutrient Targets > Carbohydrates.
    Then scroll down to sugar alcohol and tap on the switch next to 'Visible' to add it to your nutrient targets.
