Saffron Extract

Hi all! I just posted this on the vitamin/supp board, but I want to post here too because that board gets less traffic...

I recently started taking Saffron Extract (the drops) because I heard they help with mood, memory AND will keep you from snacking...(the snaking is a bonus, as I find on Atkins I dont really snack to a harmful degree). Anyways, what I can not find any info on, is how many carbs/sugar is in this stuff. The bottle just says 100% saffron...I imagine it has natural sugars considering it is plant based...but I hate to have this stuff through me out of ketosis I looked up nutrition facts for just saffron, and it has like, 1 carb, but I imagine an extract would have more...looking for advice from someone who knows
