dodgy nutrition labels at TJ's

I've noticed a few discrepancies like cinnamon sugar coated almonds having the same calorie count as raw. Then I fell in love with the pocket full of fiber pita breads with a calorie count of 100. Really wanted this to be accurate but as I compared to other like products it just didn't jive so I asked about it. After a call to the company "nutritionist" was told that they are actually 140 calories per serving but calories were deducted for the soluble fiber which "just goes right through you" and won't add calories.

I know soluble fiber can be deducted from carb counts but never heard this practice. Another nutrition/calorie savvy friend said she's noticed the same with other Joe products.
