Snapple Complaint - How nutritional information is report
Hmmm, what is wrong with out society. I was reading their nutritional labels on a couple products we bought today and evidently, they need to go back to school to learn basic math. They are not the only company that does this. going to use calories as an example, but it has to do with all the nutritional information, 1 serving which is 8 ounces, has 60 calories, yet on the bottle it has how much is in the whole bottle too, and if you drink the whole bottom, there are 130 calories, now I do not know about you, but 60 times 2 equals 120 not 130, so is there really only 60 calories per 8 ounces or 65 per 8 ounces if you divide the total calories for the bottle?
If there was 60.3 per 8 ounces then they could round down, but you add the 2 together, it would be 120.6, so they could list it as 121, but the numbers they provide are not that close.
Not trying to be nit picky, but I think it is time we hold them accountable for how they report the nutritional information. It is no wonder people have trouble staying the right weight, of when they go over, to lose it again, when we are told to read nutritional labels, and they are not even honest.
