Your own numbers don't add up. I cannot be 89.8% carbs when 34% of the ingredients are listed as non-carbs: Protein 18.0%, Fat 7.0%, Fibre 3.0%, Ash 6.0%. At the most it can only be 66% and that would assume zero water weight, which is pretty much impossible.

Thanks for posting, MT. You're quite right - around 63% (by our calculations) of the food is made up of carbohydrates. This is displayed in the dry matter nutrient gauges above.

The figures in the pie chart are different - they show the approximate percentages of ingredient groups (not nutrients) in the finished product. In this case 'carbs' refers to ingredients that are high in carbohydrates so cereals, potatoes and so on.

I know it is confusing and I wish there was a different term for the nutrient and ingredients that are rich in the nutrient but sadly the same term is used for both
