How are Net Carbs Calculated?


  • 3 Tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1/4 Cup sliced shallots
  • 9 Each garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 Pound assorted wild mushrooms, coarsely chopped
  • 1 Teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 Cup Madeira wine
  • 9 Serving Atkins Cuisine Bread, torn into 1 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1/4 Cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 Teaspoon fresh thyme
  • 1 Cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 Cup heavy cream
  • 1 Each large egg, lightly beaten


Use the Atkins recipe to make Atkins Cuisine Bread.  To make vegetarian; use vegetable broth instead of chicken broth.
  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Butter an 11x7-inch baking dish.
  2. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add shallots and garlic; sauté 2 minutes. Add mushrooms, salt and pepper; cook until mushrooms release moisture and the moisture evaporates, about 8 minutes.
  3. Stir in Madeira; cook until liquid evaporates, about 6 minutes. Remove from heat. Place mushroom mixture in a large mixing bowl.  Add bread, parsley and thyme; toss gently.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together broth, cream and egg; pour over mushroom mixture and toss to coat. Transfer mixture to the prepared baking dish. Bake until golden and set, about 45 minutes.

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.
