Re: FATFREE Digest V01 #185

  In regards to the Boca Burger debate, I think it's important to remember
that the state regulations MIGTH have something to do with it, although I
believe it is only the FDA that has a say. What I mean is, that in the US, a
product can be labelled as "fat free" if it has up to 1 gram of fat.
Anywhere from 0.1g to 1.0 g of fat in a serving still means fat free in the
US. In Canada, the same rule applies, only with a maximum of 0.5g. Anything
more and the "fat free" label would be light, low fat or otherwise. Maybe
that helps.
