the 27% of fibre is in 100g - the 11 is grams is in a 40g serving/average bowl, which would be approximately 27% by my reckoning

this may explain things

That would make sense, but 'Show product details' here, it states 11g of fibre per 100g serving.
edit.
I raised the problem with them.

i suspect that will be misuse of the information by whichever third party has completed the sales form - i don't know how listing amazon works but i would suspect it's that link i posted that has appropriated their images from the amazon pantry post and has then misinterpreted the nutritional information - hence giving it as a number without % or g sign

Fibre percentage in the above take some searching. Most of the info seems to relate to "serving size" which can vary from a couple of level teaspoons to a tablespoon to 2/3 of a 'cup' (whatever that is). Mostly from the States. I found one label per 100 grams (UK) which indicates about 10% dietary fibre.

See here.

Beans seem to be the thing that is intermittently unavailable here. Interestingly, initially it was canned beans and now certain types of dried beans seem unavailable. No clear trend but I haven’t been able to get dried fava beans for a couple of weeks now.

The Fiber One I posted is 55% daily fiber in 1.5 cups. Beans don't help me, and fiber powder, such as psylium husk aren't nearly as effective for me. People's guts vary quite a bit in what helps or not.

According to this site:

A cup is a very commonly used unit of volume measurement, especially for measuring small volumes at the kitchen or in the garden. 1 cup is the unit approved by the Imperial system and the US customary system, and it is equal to 250 milliliters.

Myself I don't use very much psyllium husk - just a largish spoon such as I'd use to eat soup with blended into a shake (maybe 15.00 milliliters or so). It seems to do the trick for me.

2/3rds of a cup all at once seems excessive to me, but maybe in an emergency situation... :oops:
