    Katy's got it.

    You're not counting how much fat is in the foods are you? *shakes head*

    It's the littleist amount they can't measure it, so probably a lot less than one gram in the end

    Depends on how big the whole packet it is, it is typically something assumed to be statistically insignificant compared to all the other constituants.

    Officially, if there is greater than nothing but less than 0.1g per 100 g i.e 0.1% then it's classified as a trace.
