Supermarket Salads Are Not Good For You
Those hoping to enjoy a summer salad as part of a healthy diet could be in for a shock.
Many on sale at leading stores are more unhealthy than a diet of fast food and chocolate, a recent research by Which? discovered.
The consumer group says its findings emphasize the need for clearer nutrition labeling on food packaging.
It is said that a Big Mac and medium fries will provide you with 820 calories and 40g of fat, on the other hand, a prawn marie rose salad from Smedleys Atlantic, contains 855 calories and 66.3g of fat.
The salad’s fat level is 70 per cent of the recommended daily amount for a man. Eating too much fat can increase the likelihood of clogged arteries and would raise the risk of heart cancer.
It said the lack of a standard nutrition information label system makes it difficult for the consumers to easily see whether a product is high in fat, calories, sugar or salt.
Which? editor Martyn Hocking said: ‘If you thought your high street salad was healthy, you could be in for a surprise.
