Can I just make a sensible query regarding the quantity please?

I cannot for the life of me see how 100mg of anything can possess 2g of carbohydrates, 2g of fibre and 0.75g of protein. The maths doesn't work. Should it be 100ml? I just have a feeling that this is a liquid...

So ignoring that...
  • Given it has no cholesterol and no vitamin d, it is not mammal/fish/... based
  • most of the carbohydrates are sugars (1.7g of the 2g), so it's probably sweet to sweetish
  • Of the 2g of fibre, 1.4g is non soluble
  • It had quite a few of the B vitamins in it.
  • It's got vitamins A, C, E & K
  • It's got Calcium, Iron, Iodine, Potassium, Magnesium, Sodium, Phosphorus and Zinc in it.
  • Curiously it has mentioned that it has no Alcohol, Organic Acids or Sugar Alcohols which would suggest an alcoholic version of it is available (?) in organic form (?)
Have Guinness got an alcohol free version out?

Not listed though and it accounts for 95% of the weight and is not a liquid.

So probably not of animal or fish origin for above reasons, 95% water, high vit b... It's now only 1.7% sugar by weight... So not that sweet, contains some protein and some fibre but not much of either... It's that statement about alcohol sugars and organic acids that bugs me
