Consumers misled by food labels23rd August 2007
Consumers may be being misled about the salt content in items they are buying.
Tests carried out on behalf of the Local Authorities Coordinators of Regulatory Services (Lacors) studied 831 products and found that salt had fallen by nearly 11% on average in the last two years.
But the councils also warned customers may be â€śhoodwinkedâ€? by labels that gave details for portions smaller than those that would be realistically eaten and were not meaningful. However, the food industry said the UK had some of the most honest and open labelling in Europe.
