Conversion Question

Hi Experts,

     A non-technical question here.  

If there is 47 grams of carbs per serving, and you eat 1 tablespoon of that serving, how many carbs are you ingesting?

Unknown without knowing what a "serving" is.

Is a "serving" 1 TBS, 1 cup, or 1 gallon?

Since tablespoon is a measurement of volume, the serving size must also be a volume measurement, not a weight value.

@Paul Sauve - I read it as "crabs" at first too xD

The serving is 1/2 cup (58 g) per the packaging. If 1/2 cup of whatever you're eating is 58 g then one tablespoon is going to be around 5 g.

So if there's 47 g of carbs in a 58 g serving, there is about 4 g in one tablespoon (47/58 = x/5, solve for x).

Happy eating!
