This is on the TV in the background right now. And I just found an article about it. Lying Food Labels - MORE Magazine - For Women 40 Plus Basically, FDA guidelines allow food companies to have a margin of error of up to 20% on their food labels. That means that the food you buy could (and often does) have 20% more calories, 20% more fat, 20% more everything than the package label says it does. In fact, on the news here they've done some tests in their own labs and found food packages (mostly frozen meals) that actually had 350% more fat than the package label said. What do you think? Is the margin of error that the FDA allows too high?
Thank you to the SSMC makers for my beautiful siggies!
Well since the basic science is depenent on a specific test on specific products it is going to vary. We did the calorie test in highschool. my peanut had x amt of calories, the table next to me had double the amt. the table behind me had 5 more than I did. Until we can produce food with a specific amt of calories, no more, no less ... we're going to have this.
