Hi. You have explained this before and thank you. but now i am confused again because the numbers don't add up to 100%.
The carbs on the nutrient report are significantly higher than on the "by pet" report and even with fiber factored in they don't match.
See attached.
And thank you again!

Karla. The first pic represents the carbohydrate that was analyzed and recorded. This is probably a partial analysis. If you add up the values, the total sum is only 79.56 (not 100).

In the 2nd pic, the report is using another method of calculating carbohydrate - carbohydrate by difference. Here we only need to analyze protein, fat, fiber, water, and ash. We add these values and subtract from 100 to get the "carbohydrate" value.

Both methods are correct but the "carbohydrate by difference" method allows you to estimate the real carbohydrate value and properly graph these macros. Notice how the values from the Nutrient Report add up to 100.

Please use the values from the Nutrient Report (carbohydrate by difference) for any communications with customers.
