Calculations based on 4, 4, and 9 calories per gram for protein, carbohydrate, and fat, respectively. This material is provided for informational purposes only and is not a specification.

** Dietary Fiber defined as non-digestible carbohydrates (≥ 3 monomeric units) and lignin that are intrinsic and intact in plants, or added (isolated or synthetic) non-digestible carbohydrates (≥ 3 monomeric units) that have been determined by FDA to have a physiological benefit.

† Added Sugars defined as any “sugar” added during the processing of foods including sugars, sugar syrups, naturally occurring sugars isolated from a whole food and concentrated so that sugar is the primary component (e.g. fruit juice concentrates), or other caloric sweeteners.

‡ Other Carbohydrate: *Note: Certain food additive constituents are not reasonably classified as standard nutritional components. In order to distinguish these constituents from the substances commonly understand to be dietary carbohydrates, they are listed in the “Other Carbohydrate” category.
