Benecol "light" (so-called)
There's a cholesterol-lowering yogurt drink called Benecol which is available in "light" and fruit-flavoured versions. But this word "light" is meaningless as far as this product is concerned because the so-called "light" version contains 7.3Gm carbohydrate per 100Gm and the fruit-flavoured versions contain only on average 6Gm. The fat content seems to be more or less the same across the range. Thus the non-light versions are in fact "lighter" than the "light" version. This is not a satisfactory situation and misleading to purchasers. They justify the use of the word "light" by comparison to other makes of yogurt drink. But I wonder if others agree that the makers of Benecol should alter their product labelling and not confuse their customers ??
