Choco­late Cream Bis­cuits

Are all of these nine fine?

Consumer Voice - - Contents -

These are the most dif­fi­cult to re­sist, some will say, be­ing more than bis­cuits and be­ing all choco­latey and creamy. There is in­stant sat­is­fac­tion and an equally in­stant rush of en­ergy. Talk­ing of en­ergy, it is one of the things whose value needs to be men­tioned on the la­bel of the bis­cuit pack. This and the amounts of pro­tein, car­bo­hy­drate, fat, sugar, etc. With so many vari­ants and brands of these bis­cuits out there to get our at­ten­tion, we are def­i­nitely bet­ter off know­ing on what ba­sis to pick our brands. The eas­i­est place to start with is the in­for­ma­tion given on the food la­bel, and that's what we will do in the fol­low­ing report. Given that nutri­tion la­bels are not al­ways easy or sim­ple enough to in­ter­pret, or stan­dard­ised for en­abling com­par­i­son among brands in a spe­cific cat­e­gory, we have here culled out the essen­tial de­tails on the ba­sis of which we as con­sumers can make in­formed and healthy choices. In­ter­est­ingly, while dec­la­ra­tion of sodium/salt on food prod­ucts la­bel is not manda­tory as per In­dian law, it was de­clared by Oreo and Priyagold among the nine brands we stud­ied.
