Default Protein bar Net Carb Count Faulty?

Hi, I purchased a box of Mocha Almond Protein Bar (delicious!) but the carb count as stated on the box seems in error. The front of the box states 4g of Net Atkins Count but the Nutrition Facts state Carbohydrates 17 g and Fibres 11 g, which nets 6 carbs to my mind. What am I missing?

I'm the last person to give advice since its taken me more than a year to lose 30+ pounds and I don't know about Atkins products, but I think 'The new Atkins' is more interested in selling 'frankenstein' products than in helping you lose weight. Can you really only eat one of something you describe as "delicious"?

Sugar alcohols are also deducted by ANA.
I suggest you use the Total Carb number.
