“Pay more, get less” seems to be the motto of some manufacturers. Let’s look at an example.
Dannon yogurt individual servings used to be eight ounces but now they are six ounces. The reduction in price is not equal to the reduction in the product, hence more for less. But that’s not all. On the top of the smaller container is the statement, “only 90 calories per cup.” But wait a minute, the container is not a cup, since a cup is eight ounces.
Consider what has happened to the pork tenderloin, which used to be a very healthy cut of meat until some manufacturers decided to enhance the product to make it more flavorful and tender. The enhancement means that up to 10% of the product is now a salt solution, so the consumer is paying for salt water. Another result is a tremendous leap in the amount of sodium per serving.
