THIS TIME AUTHENTICATED ANALYSIS CONDUCTED BY CSE[Centre for Science & Environment ]

The CSE Analysis reveals that the brands have concentration of Salt and fat multiple times the R.D.A [Recommended Dietary Allowance ] The different Brands contained 2.4 to 6.7 times the RDA .

Fat content 2.1 to 5.6 times the RDA. In several Packaged foods. 44 grams and 77 grams of total fat daily.

Next S is Sugar .

Beware of commercial firms in their greed to make huge profits combine the 3 ingredients in high quantities to hook the consumers into Addiction to the Brand so that mre is sold to generate more profit. Research has also found that ,

COMBINED TASTE OF THESE 3 EATEN TOGETHER TRIGGER A STRONGER REWARD SIGNAL IN THE BRAIN, CONSUMER CRAVING DEVELOPS THAT TURN TO ADDICTION TO THAT BRAND .

The brands should be required by law not only to display their ingredients but also the Recommended intake so that people will be forewarned just like statutory warning on cigarette packs.

Spurred by the comments that synchronizes , I am attaching some more information that the consumers [PARENTS AS WELL AS CHILDREN ] have to note before swallowing the contents .

Take a look at the points 3 & 6 that we are concerned with reference to the post . That is addictive combination of certains foods . . Her particularly Fat and Salt & Fat.

3. Fat : The dietary reference intake (DRI) for fat in adults is 20% to 35% of total calories from fat.

That is about 44 grams to 77 grams of fat per day if you eat 2,000 calories a day.

This very popular snax gives 43.5 per 100 grams. Almost the whole days dietary intake . This can be burnt if the chld is expending energy in activities . If TV Watching one will become obese .

6. The other ingredient , SALT AS SODIUM [not as Sodium Chloride - that is common salt that we take .] It is 771 Milligram per 100 gram of the snax.

The recommended daily Allowance is 2,400 milligram . Almost 35 % of daily allowance is consumed as a snax; and when calculated at the end of the day after taking into consideration salt in Breakfast, Lunch , Dinner and more Junk food for Total consumption of Fats . Will it not Cross 2,400 milligrams.

SHOULD WE NOT BE AWARE OF THIS FACT WHEN WE SNACK AROUND AND ALSO MAKE OUR CHILDREN AWARE ? more  
Why not there be a warning in prominent form to caution the customer more
