    Ok, i've got to different tubs of "100% organic barley grass powder", both from New Zealand.

    Nutritional information/100g on Tub 1 reads:
    Energy..........1300kj
    Protein..........19.9g
    Fat...............5.2g
    Carbs-total....64g
    -sugars...8.1g
    Fiber.............35.2g


    Tub 2 reads:
    Energy..........1050kj
    Protein..........29g
    Fat...............2.5g
    Carbs-total....3.4g
    -sugars...3.1g
    Fiber.............39g

    whats the deal here?

    i would assume the first tub has a lot of maltodextrin.. technically not sugar, but it's just like it.. hence, the reason for the huge carb difference..

    i have a feeling maltodextrin would have to be classified under "sugars", and in ther ingredients it only says 100% orgainc barley grass

    nope... my weight gainer says 7g of sugar.. but it's loaded with maltodextrin, cuz it's the 2nd listed ingredient on the label.. 88g of carbs
