I have always heard that:

1g carbs = 4C
1g protein = 4C
1g fat = 9c

Now, I'm looking at the label of this cereal bar.
It says it has 32g carbs, 3g fat, 9g protein.

This should add up to 191 calories. The label says 160.
I know the label isn't always exact, but that's a 31C difference.

Why is this?

EDIT: Thank you cautiouslyopen!
This is an awesome explanation.

Does anyone know informational websites or references on the negative effect of growth hormones in meat products? I already don't eat very much meat, but I would like some information I can throw at people when they try and get me to.
