I've never tried cooking with soda before. What an interesting dinner recipe!

Yes, our recipes count sugar as part of the carb content. That's why sugar is included within the Total Carbs in our nutrition box, clearly marked for everyone to see.

Have not given this a try yet,but my comment is: do you not take into consideration that not only sugar counts but that carbs also turn unto a type of sugar in the body. It is very hard for us because most people do not count the carbs along with the sugar. People Ned to know this info.
