Tempeh Nutrition Data

I usually choose the generic, NCCD database for almost all my foods so that I have a full nutrient breakdown. However, the tempeh nutrition is wildly different than often labeled-- wherein the carbohydrate is about 50% those listed on the package and slightly higher protein.

I am wondering if manufacturers (tofurky, lightlife, etc) make a caloric content estimation based on nutrition into product, before the fermentation. Or do manufacturers have to get their products independently calorie tested and perhaps they aren't completing the fermentation in the traditional way, suggested by the NCCD? What would you recommend if I am using cronometer for fitness and weightloss and eat tempeh frequently?
