Supermarket food 'fatty and salty'

9th January 2008

New research has shown that supermarket "ready meals" can frequently have significantly higher fat and salt content than is displayed on their outer packaging.

Tests carried out in a laboratory discovered that some ready meal had up to 91% "more fat than was stated on the label" according to the Independent. The investigation was carried out by Channel 4's Dispatches programme, in an examination of Britain's food industry.
