Low-Cal Snack or Wrong Serving Size?

A “popped” grain snack crisp shows an amazingly low 16 calories per serving.

If it seems too good to be true.... The Nutrition Facts for this snack product uses a serving size of 5 grams, when it should be 28 grams, like all other snack chips, snack crackers and rice cakes. The 16 calories are really closer to 90. Still low, but very different, and significant, considering all online nutrition data (including this product with its incorrect serving size) has been inserted into countless nutrition apps and data sites that score food based on mostly the calories showing on the Nutrition Facts panel.
