RE: [pct-l] Trail food

My favorite misleading place on the label is the "Calories from fat".  This can
be 100 percent even in a low or reduced fat product.  Put a tablespoon of butter
in a quart of water and the fat content by volume is very low...looks good on
the label.  But it is still 100 percent fat as far as any nutritional value is
concerned.  Mix in a equal portion of "sawdust" or some other empty ingredient
to a product and you instantly have 50% "fat free".
