FATFREE vs. a "little fat"

Sioban -

I'm no chemist, but I can tell you that in the U.S. a "fatfree" product is 
supposed to be truly fatfree (maybe a trace of fat is allowed in, that's 
where I'd need the chemist to be sure).  Most dairy products where I live are 
available in a regular, reduced fat, or fatfree version - i.e. regular sour 
cream, reduced fat free sour cream (maybe 1/2 the fat of regular - I'm not 
sure the exact fat reduction, but I believe there are regulations defining 
how much fat must be removed) and fat free sour cream.

Hope that's helpful.
