Health Canada regulations it states: The amount of both soluble and insoluble fibre may be separately declared as additional information.
Do we need to add the insoluble fibre in the total calories? I am a bit confused as to how to label soluble and insolube fibre for Canada regulations.

However, in the USA, the calorie calculation is different, namely, the amount of insoluble fibre can be subtracted from the total carbohydrate content (Electronic Code of Federal Regulations, Title 21, § 101.9©(1)(i)©). Therefore, the energy value assigned in the USA to insoluble fibre is 0 kcal/g

Thank you kindly! :)
