Health.com: 16 Most Misleading Food Labels

10 of 19

Light

A food label may say a product, such as olive oil, is light, but manufacturers have been known to use the term to refer to the flavor rather than the ingredients.

“The flavor might be lighter, but you aren’t saving one calorie,” says Taub-Dix. “The wording on light products can be confusing for consumers, but it is important to read the nutritional facts.”

To be considered a light product, the fat content has to be 50% less than the amount found in comparable products.
