Net Carbs in Bread Part 2?

Recently I posted about a double fiber wheat bread I like and purchase locally. It was pretty much agreed on the forum that the bread had 8 net carbs. This week when I purchased the bread it claims to have 5 net carbs.
The label reads:
Total Carbs-13
Dietary Fiber-5g
Soluble Fiber-2g
Insoluble Fiber-3g
Sugars Less Than-1g
Net Carbs-5

Please help me understand this. I'd hate to think a company would claim a false lesser Net Carb count just to sell their product.

The net carbs is 8.

Dietary fiber = soluble fiber + insouble fiber
5 = 2 + 3

Net carbs =

total carbs - fiber - sugar alcohols (if you subtract them/depending on type)

8 = 13 - 5 - 0

I would say if the label says 5 net carbs it is wrong.

I agree with Mistizoom. I think it was an error on the package label. Now, if the fibers were 8 gm, it would be correct. But given that they have the soluble/insoluble breakdown listed and it adds up to 5, then the net carbs for this bread should be listed as 8.
