As I'm diabetic I live by carbs so.......... The Flaxseed, Cranberries and maybe Yucca are the only things that contain signicant amounts of carbs. Maybe the pea flour has a it as well. I'm not too sure on the make up of that. If its just peas then 0, if their is some flour in there, then whatever proportion of it is flour, thats roughly the carb value.
BUT The amount of protein is more valuable for cats....... they do need some carbs, but their carb intake does not have to be as high as a percentage as yours or mine.
You can usually trust food manufacturers to get it right, unless yours is diabetic or something where you do need to know these values.
