    Here in Australia we have a big push to buy "Australian Made", especially fresh fruit and Veg. The next nearest and dearest nation is New Zealand.

    Many people buy "Product of New Zealand" fruit and veg until recently when it was found that this label only means it was packaged or tinned in NZ.

    Most of the produce is cheap inferior unsellable and chemically laden stuff from other countries.

    Another example was Sea Bass - AKA Indonesian farmed Catfish - clearly not Cod nor from the sea.

    Very misleading labels indeed.

      Great read. I have been buying low-sodium soy sauce! Can you explain why would rice-based cereal is a better choice than corn-based cereal? Why is corn products bad for you? should we avoid most corn products?

          Skip, I fell for this "trick" once before too... Several years ago I was walking along the aisles and saw the "Fat Free Butter Spray" I say, Shit, that sounds awesome! Get a nice buttery flavor to some fish, veggies or chicken, would be good change of pace. I was using this A LOT, like multiple servings every meal. After using this for a while I noticed fat loss wasn't the same... I inspected the label and saw oils listed. I did some more research and found that one serving actually has 4 kcals, but by law they can zay "0 calories" because it is under 5kcals. Of course the kcals come from fat here and adding several grams of fat to every meal, every day adds up. Needless to say, from that point on I became more in tune with what the ingredients are and how that translates to the food label.

          This is how the label read: Water, soybean oil*, olive oil*, salt, sweet cream buttermilk*, xanthan gum, soy lecithin, polysorbate 60, lactic acid, (potassium sorbate, calcium disodium edta) used to protect quality, maltodextrin, natural and artificial flavor, vitamin A palmitate, beta carotene (color).

          And of course it says 0 kcals, 0 fat, o cabrs and 0 protein when the 2nd and 3rd ingredients are OIL

            Treat them like they are old and eat soup... and they will be.

            Train 'em hard and feed them like a stud... and they will be.

            So will you.

                I just got this from the supermarket. Though it fit in well with this thread.

                The pork gelatine has some serious protein in it...if you consume 100g of the jelly crystals!
                It also says per 100g as sold...its a 11.5g pack!
                Then the next column states - per140ml (1/2 pint) as consumed..so thats the table for the actual packet..but they have written it in ml to confuse people.

                No sugar...except the 1 g sugar thats on the pack.
