Lecture 35: Labels - politics effect requirements Ex. Healthy Choice Turkey Breast - says 97% fat free - look at label - every label has portion size (portion size decided by manufacturer) - have to put how many calories from fat (not percent), in this case it says 15 g (60 calories per serving) - deriving % calories from fat, it actually is 25% calories from fat - meat and dairy products have different rules – products can be expressed as % by weight (not by calories), so 1.5 g of fat divided by 54g total portion size : 2.7% fat (but only by weight) trickery!! - so you can add water to meats to decrease % by weight so many things advertised as very low fat just have a high water content Dairy Deceit - Whole milk = 48% calories as fat - 2% milk by weight= 27% calories as fat - 1% milk = 22% calories as fat - skim milk = 0 calories as fat ! :) - drink skim milk; 2% milk not actually 2% by calories! USDA invented Daily Reference Value
