[IP] carbs is carbs. no difference what the source is.

>From: "Earl and Kay Guy" <email @ redacted>
>  Recently, I have run across maltose being advertised as a sugar "that
>  doesn't count". In Costco, a company was giving samples of a sugar-free
>  chocolate. I asked what their sweetner was and their reply was that it
>  was maltose. I said, "That has carbs. My daughter with diabetes
>  couldn't eat your product." The guys response was "The carbs in maltose
>  don't count." Then I noticed a friend with type 2 eating a low carb
>  snack bar. The 30 carbs were from maltose. This didn't seem low carb to
>  me.
>  Are the carbs from maltose any different from the carbs in glucose? If
>  not, this is dangerous, false advertising.
