I found this brief article to be quite interesting for a few reasons.
1) Bell and Evan Grilled Chicken Breast Meal exceeded the stated calories by 31%
2) Lean Cuisine Shrimp with Angel Hair pasta exceeded the stated calories by 28%
3) Most shocking, the FDA considers a 20% discrepancy acceptable error!
Imagine if your job performance was within 20% of the target. Really, that is acceptable! Doesn’t sound like any job I ever had.
This is just another reason to eat real unprocessed food. Clearly the nutrition labels aren’t much more than a hint.
