Why does black coffee have carbs?

Hello everyone! I'm new to keto and new to the Carb Manager app. I have always thought that black coffee has zero carbs but when I put it in carb manager it pops up as 1g of carbs per cup! I drink a lot of coffee so that adds up fast! Where are the carbs coming from? Help!

  • I've just had a look. I always thought that black coffee had 0 carbs as well. Looking at the food log there are lot of black coffee options that say 0 carbs. Some that say 1g.  I cannot explain why this is.  Perhaps it depends on the brand and what they have logged.   

    I have done a search for black coffee on other websites and they are also saying 0 carbs, so I think you are safe choosing one on the food log with 0 carbs recorded. 

  • Thank you for answering! I have realized that if I pick fluid oz instead of cups it will come out as just a few carbs. That I can handle! hahaha!
