(*) USDA seems to 'double-count' fibre as carbohydrate, thus the negative miscellaneous value for 'Actual g' in this table. Actual USDA figures have been adjusted according to energy contribution, thus the miscellaneous negative value may be considered as the energetic, soluble fibre, already accounted for.
