Soft Drinks, are really light?

We thought we knew all about light foods that exist in the market that must have a 30% reduction in their energy value as indicated by current legislation, but the Consumer Services of  Andalucía are controlling these so-called light products and demonstrated that light refreshments are not as light as they say.

Nine samples of soft drinks were analyzed to analyze the alcoholic strength, sugars, sweeteners and fat and to contrast this data with the denomination of light and the declared in the labeling, which is the only information accessed by the consumer. The results unfortunately show that three of the analyzed beverages did not have fewer calories than they should have because they are light.

Light products normally have a higher price justified by their healthier character, because they have a lower energy value, less fat and / or sugars. However, light soft drinks are not so light but they are still expensive and are called as if they were, confusing the consumer.

This type of control campaigns are very useful to defend the consumer and to validate the information that is offered to us.
For the moment, what we should do is reduce the use of these products that most cases are not necessary, but we can also compare the calories that the light product that we want to consume with another non-light product of the same brand, and we will know there if in fact it is a food with reduced calories or if on the contrary, they are called light without really being it.

We must put all these types of products under the microscope before consuming them effectively and not blindly trusting in the energy reduction they declare.
