I just read a webpage indicating that due to the way the govt makes food mfgrs calulate ingredients in their products, the amount of carbs in yogurt is overstated. Much of the lactose in the milk used to make it is converted to lactic acid, but remains in the carb count in the nutrition facts on the carton. I understood the fermentation process before, but was not aware of the label being misleading. Could anyone point me to research or a definitive source showing that this is true? Thanks.
