Another possibility here is incorrect nutritional info on the package.  I 
recently bought a package of Manny's fat-free flour tortillas that claimed 
11g of carbohydrate in 2 6-inch tortillas.   Well, I weighed 2 and fund them 
to weigh 68 g rather than the 53 g on the package, so converted that 11g of 
carbohydrate by 68/55 and bolused accordingly.  If I eat any more of those, I 
will use 30g of carbohydrate per 53 g weight, like other brands -- my blood 
sugar soared.  Does anyone know who to complain to about incorrect 
nutritional info?
