The reason serving sizes are so small is because you're not supposed to make a meal out of one or two things. You take a serving of a bunch of different foods and make a meal with some variety, not eat a whole bag of a chips by itself
I love how American labelling is openly dishonest.
See, there's no standardisation as to what a "serving" in the US actually is and can therefore mean anything the manufacturer would like it to mean.
As such, many "sugar free!!!" sweets here list sugar as one of the top, if not the very top, ingredients. Yet, because anything under a half gram "per serving" is considered 0 by USican labeling laws, the "nutrition facts," (a name which is incredibly dubious) can legally state "sugar, 0g!!!" For example, because a single Tic-Tac is considered "a serving," and each Tic-Tac weighs only 0,4g, Perfetti, the company which manufacture them, is allowed to slap "Sugar free!!!" onto their "nutrition facts" (lol) despite the ingredients label very clearly stating that it does indeed contain sugar.
Pretty sneaky, sis.
You really ought to do as we do in the rest of the goddamned world: give the nutrition information per 100g of product and let the consumer decide what a fucking serving is. But no: that would hardly be prudent, right?
>>7252130 But they then define what a serving is by either ounces or pieces or what have you.
See me making stupid claims about your food label bullshit? No, because I'm not informed enough and it'd be stupid of me to try. Take a second and think about whether this post was a good post or a bad one. Then you can feel free to apologize for making me type this shit out.
>>7252117 You miss the point more than Shaq with a free throw.
>>7252127 A serving size of 0,000002g of tears has 0g of salt per serving, so enjoy this salt free food! >"how can it be salt free when it tastes so salty?" The label says it's salt free and we can't print falsehoods on labels, right? So it must be salt free! >"but according to this, tears are made primarily of salt..." Despite what it's made of, there are 0g of salt per serving of tears, so it's salt free!!! >"isn't that a tad disingenuous?" That's the point! Now enjoy your salt-free food!
>>7251953 this. when i went to new york, i ate at some restaurant that had calories marked in the menu and holy fuck those were high. iirc the highest was around 2,7k calories and the lowest around 1,4k and add your drink to that which went as high as like 400 or something like that. that shit was ridiculous. hell, even appetizers were ridiculously big and could have been eaten as the main course. also i'm like average size and i had 0 chance in finishing those mains
