Axia College Material Nutrition JOHN STOSSEL (ABC NEWS) (OC) Okay, I’ll say it again. Some food companies are fooling us. Read some labels and you think, oh, this doesn’t have that much fat or calories. But the count’s based on serving size, and what some companies call one serving is ridiculous. For example, would you expect to share something called “your personal pizza” with someone else? No. But the company says, this serves two. [1]22:52:46 JOHN STOSSEL (ABC NEWS) (VO) We asked some pizza men about sharing one of these, your personal pizzas. [1]22:52:51 PARTICIPANT (MALE) I don’t think you could share this with anybody. [1]22:52:53 PARTICIPANT (MALE) They’d throw it back in my face. [1]22:52:57 JOHN STOSSEL (ABC NEWS) (VO) Most people we talked to weren’t convinced. [1]22:52:57 PARTICIPANT (MALE) A snack at best. A snack. [1]22:52:59 PARTICIPANT (MALE) Where’s the rest of it? [1]22:53:00 PARTICIPANT (FEMALE) My cat could eat that. [1]22:53:02 JOHN STOSSEL (ABC NEWS) (VO) Of course, why should we care what a label says is a serving size? Well, lots of us rely on labels to count calories, carbs and salt. And you may not realize the amounts shown are not per package, but per serving. And what some call a serving is small. Consider the Hungry Man chicken pot pie. [1]22:53:21
