calculator How are Net Carbs Calculated?


  • 2 oz Vanilla Whey Protein
  • 0.25 cup Almond Meal Flour
  • 3 Tbsp Whole Grain Soy Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder (Straight Phosphate, Double Acting)
  • 3 large Egg (Whole)
  • 0.33 cup Large or Small Curd Creamed Cottage Cheese


Serve with almond butter or sugar-free pancake syrup. Garnish with toasted almonds, if desired.

  1. Mix the protein powder (1oz is about 4 Tbsp), almond meal, soy flour and baking powder together. Whisk the eggs, then blend together with the cottage cheese (substitute cream cheese if cottage cheese is not on your accepted foods list). 
  2. Heat a large nonstick skillet or griddle over medium heat. Lightly grease with butter or canola oil. 
  3. Using about 1/4 cup per pancake, drop batter onto the skillet. When bubbles begin to form in the middle of each pancake, turn over and cook another 2 minutes or until firm. 
  4. Repeat, keeping pancakes warm in the oven.

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.
