Upgraded Whey Kcal Misleading Macros?

If you look on this site:




It says 60 kcal per serving


This consists of 1g carb, 1.5g fat, 8g protein. 


1g carb/protein = 4 kcal, 1g fat = 9 kcal


So 9x4 + 1.5x9 = 36 + 14 means 50 kcal.


Where do I go wrong? Rounding, but if you can say 1.5g fat, you can also be precise with others. It seems like they are misleading here. Thoughts?

    On the label, it also reads,

    "calories from fat ... 20" (per serving),

    So something seems off somewhere...

    Total fat content looks to be more like 2.2 grams per serving (not 1.5 grams).

    fake it till you make it
