‘No fat, no sugar’ food might be bad for your health -study
So apparently those foods with no or reduced fat, salt and sugar are not that good.
This is according to a study that appeared in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
Lead investigator Lindsey Smith Taillie from the University Of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in the US:
These foods may contain added flour‚ salt‚ starch‚ or sugar to improve flavour and texture after fat is removed‚ for example‚ a low-fat salad dressing is still high in energy and should be eaten in moderation.
Essentially‚ reduced claims are confusing because they are relative and only about one nutrient.
The study looked at 80 million food and beverage purchased from more than 40,000 households from 2008 to 2012.
