Why Isn't the Carb Content Stated on All of Your Labels?

Question: I'm trying to control my intake of carbohydrates but take several dietary supplements from your company. Can you tell me the carbohydrate content of them, as it is not stated on the label?

Under the Dietary Supplement Health Education Act (DSHEA), any supplement that provides one-half gram (0.5g) of carbohydrates or more per serving must clearly state the weight of the contents in the supplement facts box found on the product label. If you do not find such a listing, you can safely conclude that a serving contains less than one-half gram, which is negligible for carbohydrate-counting purposes.
