For food products that exist in our database, and if a relevant application was developed, the total carbohydrates content is detectable using SCiO. Currently, our applications include nutritional values of various fruits, vegetables and dairy products. As our database expands we plan to introduce other food related apps such a drinks, meats, fruit ripeness and more.
If you would like to know the total amount of carbohydrates in a specific food, you will need to know its total size or weight, similar to other nutrition measurement apps, as measurements will be provided by serving size and/or 100 grams.
As mentioned, SCiO is a learning device. The values that should be populated in the database should be based on chemical analysis conducted by laboratories, rather than based on the product label values.
