To figure out the percentage of carbohydrate in a drink, take the number of grams of carbohydrate per serving, divide it by the num- ber of milliliters per serving, and multiply this value by 100. For example, a 240 ml (1 cup) serving of a drink with 24 grams of carbs per serving would have a 10 percent carbohydrate concentration.
