Query for all
To determine the amounts of fats, carbs, protein and cals in a food who is the final authority? Calorie counter applications or package labels? Really need to make a decision. The numbers can vary widely between the 2 sources.

there is no easy answer to that. you need to be skeptical of "too good to be true" no matter what the source. processed foods and recipes can vary widely in nutrient values, but broccoli is broccoli. If a package claims their broccoli is lower carb, it's either mismeasuring, rounding, or a typo, right? unfortunately we can just use our judgment and do the best we can.

I would trust the package over a website.

Nutrition info
That was my thinking, website is more general......trust the people who made the product at least with the government looking over their shoulders:).
