Can I trust this tahini?

There was some tahini on sale today at the grocery store, and I've been meaning to try a zucchini "hummus" recipe out, so I grabbed it. The stats seem good...almost too good, though? See below:

Allegedly this nets out at zero carbs. While I don't necessarily believe that, is it really possible this has very few net carbs, or is this just a case of poor nutritional calculating? I'm honestly wondering if I should be returning it!

the USDA number is 1.8 grams of net carb per tablespoon. if you use something like that, I see no reason you shouldn't enjoy the tahini. don't punish the poor sesame seeds for bad labeling! LOL

if you want the sesame flavor without the carbs, sesame oil, sold with Chinese ingredients, is great.
