Additional Description/Notes:
This product has 20 calories per serving, as stated on the label. If you do the math, knowing that fat has 9 calories per gram, and carbs and protein each have 4, you can confirm this.

.5 * 9 + (3 + 1) * 4 = 19.5 or about 20.

HOWEVER, this label subtracts 8 calories because 2g of the carbohydrates are actually insoluble fiber, which does not provide the body with caloric energy. So the calorie count would actually be about 11.5 . . . rounded down to 10 calories.

I hope this settles the long-running argument.
