H Susan,
Good try. Here’s how to work through it. Keep in mind that net carbs are equal to total carbs minus fiber (I should make that note in the book).

Hemp seed: FP for 1 oz (28 grams)
The net carbs are total carbs minus fiber, or 1 gram net carbs and 1 gram fiber. I would assume a GI of about 20 for the net carbs (similar to peanuts). So the equation is:
FP=(((100-20)*1)/100)+1+0 = 1.8 grams. Since the net carbs are so low, the GI doesn’t really matter much. Even assuming a GI of zero for the net carbs, the answer would be 2 grams FP.

Sachi inchi (savi seeds): Here is the FP calculation based on 5 grams net carbs (9 grams total carbs minus 4 grams fiber) and 4 grams fiber. Since 4 of the 5 grams net carbs are sugar, I am assigning the GI for sugar (59) to the entire net carb amount of 5 grams just to simplify things:

FP=(((100-59)*5)/100)+4+0 = 6 grams
