Comment calculer les glucides nets

Avec l’approche nutritionnelle AtkinsMD, le décompte net AtkinsMC est calculé en soustrayant le nombre de grammes de fibres et de polyols (comme la glycérine et les alcools de sucre) du nombre total de grammes de glucides contenu dans les aliments entiers. Ce calcul correspond au concept voulant que les fibres et les polyols ont des répercussions minimales sur le taux de glycémie dans les quantités dans lesquelles on les retrouve dans les produits.
