This is why it's best to eat food in it's natural form...you can't trust people!

when i do nutrition counseling, i always emphasize the fact that 0.5g can = 0g....this is especially important to know concerning trans fat! a packaged food can say 0 trans fat per serving, but still contain a significant amount! always read the ingredients..if it contains partially hydrogenated oil, then it contains trans fat...which is most baked products...cookies, crackers, pastries, pies, etc!!!

Trans fat= anything sweet and tasty!!!! Uggg!! Girl scout cookies has a new one w/o them supposedly. But I decided not to buy any this year, b/c either way, I knew I could eat an entire box in one sitting!!

The biggest thing I've noticed that with is SPRAY BUTTER. It says 0 cals so people get carried away with it...but look at the SERVING SIZE. Does anybody use 1/2 a spray?? There are TONS of cals in it if you're using a lot of it regularly. Great point!!

Other than protein powder, I don't eat much of anything with an ingredient panel when dieting anyway. Since my powders are produced in a cGMP facility, I'm not worried about them being wrong.
