Palm oil in a product that boasts of not containing it!
The magazine highlighted the Primevère brand’s lie about its margarine. Basically, on the package, it says that the product does not contain palm oil. A real interest for consumers when we know that palm oil destroys the planet and is not good for health. But if we take a closer look, we can see if the label that the product… is made with palm oil. It is therefore a deliberate lie on the part of the brand.
” Look for the mistake! The words “no palm oil” are displayed. great on the tray, but on the back it says “contains palm oil”. With or without palm oil? Primevère explains that this is a misprint and guarantees that this margarine does not contain any. And leave the products on the shelf. Which leaves the consumer in confusion“, published the magazine on its site.
Studies of 60 million consumers
The magazine wants customers to know exactly what they are buying. Don’t always trust the packaging. Packaging is sometimes too elaborate to be attractive. But that doesn’t necessarily mean the products are good for you. The same goes for prices: the highest quality products are not always the most expensive.
Let’s take the example of chocolate powder Several brands were studied by the magazine. Therefore, about fifteen brands were analyzed. In all products, the magazine deplores too high a sugar content… for all brands: “ Thus, a 200 ml bowl provides an average of 20 g of sugar: this represents 40% of the recommended intake!“.
In its ranking, the Ovaltine brand points to the last position. Why ? Due to its high sugar content and the presence of additives. Therefore, it is one of the few brands that has not drawn a line under these controversial components. The Canderel brand is also in trouble with its Cankao without aspartame. 60 million consumers deplore the presence of three synthetic sweeteners in its composition. So these are the two bad students.
Other well-known brands are not proud what’s more since 60 million consumers highlight the low cocoa content. It’s a shame for hot chocolate, but it’s true. Ovaltine brand hot chocolate contains only 13% cocoa. Behind, it is slightly better for Bananania (19%) and Nesquik (23%).
The French no longer trust
It’s simple, not a week goes by without a health scandal, more or less important. Enter here presence of dangerous bacteria and brand lies makes it difficult to know which products to buy. The recent Buitoni pizza scandal has not reassured the French, especially when we know that some children have died.
A magazine like 60 million consumers is there to help you make the right choice. To take the example of powdered chocolate, the magazine only highlights the bad students. Good students are obviously cited.
Thus, the three good student brands that lead the ranking are: first of its kind, the Jolivia brand with its raw organic cocoa powder. With a good score of 16.5/20, the product can boast of having a composition that does not endanger your health.. Just behind comes the Naturela brand, with its lean pure cocoa, and no added sugars. Finally, in third place, Van houten, with its organic cocoa without sugar. The nutritional values of these cocoa powders are excellent.
