    This is what I see on the full nutrition label when I googled it, so it looks like the 179 kcal is for 100g not the full 195g in the package.:

    Actually, I can't see how any of that makes sense, I think there's been a balls up somewhere. I'd go with the 201kcal per 100g if you're planning from an online shop and then see what the actual package says. Overall, 20 calories isn't going to make or break you generally.

    Food labels are allowed to be off by 10%. This looks like an example of that.

    I have no idea whats up with that label.

    To be safe, i'd use the per 100g info and multiply that by 1.95 to get your right calorie information.

    I know this applies in the US and I just accept to be similar in the UK (where I and OP are) but Google will not tell me the acceptable tolerance here.

    Wouldn't worry much about 6 calories.
