How are Net Carbs Calculated?

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 individual packet Sucralose Based Sweetener (Sugar Substitute)
  • 1 large Egg (Whole)
  • 2 tsp Baking Powder (Straight Phosphate, Double Acting)
  • 0.25 tsp Salt
  • 1 cup Cream (Half & Half)

DIRECTIONS

Use the Atkins recipe to make All Purpose Low-Carb Baking Mix for this recipe.  This recipe makes 5 waffles. Assuming your waffle iron makes 4 servings, use four-fifths of the batter and then make a single waffle with the remaining batter. Freeze extra waffles and just pop in the toaster before serving.

  1. In a large bowl, blend together 1 cup baking mix, baking powder, sugar substitute and salt. 
  2. In another large bowl, mix the half-and-half and beaten egg.
  3. Add dry ingredients to the liquid ingredients and whisk batter until any lumps are removed. Don't overbeat.
  4. Let the mixture sit for at least 5 minutes to activate the baking powder.
  5. Heat the waffle iron and pour the batter in the center of the waffle iron.
  6. Close the top and cook waffles for about 1 1 1/2 minutes or until golden brown.
  7. Repeat with last waffle.

How to Calculate Net Carbs

In order to calculate Net Carbs of any whole food item, it's a simple calculation based on the Nutrition Facts panel:

Total Carbohydrates - (Minus) Dietary Fiber = (Equals) Net Carbs

For low carb products sweetened with sugar alcohols (ie: glycerin, maltitol, etc), refer to the Nutrition Facts panel of the product:

Total Carbohydrates - (Minus) Dietary Fiber - (Minus) Sugar alcohol = Net carbs

This reflects the fact that Dietary Fiber doesn't impact blood sugar levels. Sugar alcohols also have a negligible impact on blood sugar, they too are subtracted from total carbs to yield the Net Carb count.
