According to packages on frozen berries (e.g. raspberry, blueberry and others), 10g out of 100g consists of sugar, 1g of other carbohydrates, and 0-1g of protein. What about the rest? Is it just water?

Isn't fiber included in "other carbohydrates" on the nutrition label? – Jeremy Stein Feb 9 '12 at 20:21
    
Yes, fiber should be part of the "other carbohydrates" if it isn't mentioned specifically on the label. – Nathan Wheeler Jul 3 '12 at 23:10
