Instant Coffee: The proximates do not add up to anywhere near 100%. Is something missing?

For powdered food concentrates, such as instant coffee, instant tea and powdered bouillon, the proximates (protein, fat, carbs, moisture, ash) reported, may not add up to 100% of the gram weight.  This is because these items contain non-protein nitrogen that is not included in the protein grams reported.
