More dietary fiber than carbs?

From my understanding,
Carbs - dietary fiber = net carbs

How can there be more fiber than carbs?!5exn9bbqvgt7.jpg

    To me this looks like the "total carbs" is already net carbs. This is common in the UK and Europe and elsewhere...not as common in the USA, but that's not to say it doesn't happen.

    Yeah, I think it's pretty inconsistent in the US. I would get some lentils that were 70cal for 32g, and some that were 130cal for 32g, lol. Both were just green lentils.
