Wholesome Yum provides approximate nutrition information for convenience and as a courtesy only. Nutrition data is gathered primarily from the USDA Food Composition Database, whenever available, or otherwise food labels or the Wholesome Yum app.
We strive to keep the information as accurate as possible, but make no warranties regarding its accuracy and encourage readers to make their own calculations.
Below are common reasons for discrepancies in nutrition info between what you see on the website and your own calculations or other apps/calculators:
- Sweeteners – Our net carb count excludes fiber, erythritol, and allulose, because these do not affect blood sugar in most people. (Learn about net carbs here.) Many online calculators (incorrectly) do not subtract erythritol and allulose from carb counts.
- Rounding – Food packaging typically rounds to either the nearest 0.5g or nearest 1g. In cases where a larger quantity is used in a recipe, this rounding can add up to a significant discrepancy in total nutrition. A good example of this is keto cheesecake, which uses a lot of cream cheese, a food that is commonly rounded up on labels. We use exact amounts to the nearest tenth in our calculations, in an effort to make our nutrition info as accurate as possible.
- Measurement precision – Exact nutrition can vary depending on how you measure.
- Brand – Different brands of the same food can have varied nutrition info.
Our nutrition facts include calories, fat, protein, total carbohydrates, net carbohydrates, fiber, and sugar. We don’t currently provide values for sodium, cholesterol, vitamins, and minerals, so you’d have to calculate these on your own if they are important to you. Sorry for any inconvenience.
