Deceptive Food Labelling

Sick of the deception in food labeling!!! Just shopping in Woolworths and got involved in a conversation with an elderly couple, as you do. The man had heart problems and was determined to eat healthier from now on, very determined to make a lifestyle change. He picked up a tub of margarine (which I would have advised against regardless) and made the selection. He was very happy that it was labelled as “heart healthy and had the “tick” of approval. What he didn’t realize was that the product of full of trans fats!!! How do they get away with this deception, blatant lies in marketing. Trans fats lengthen shelf life but decrease human life!!!
