"Low fat" and "reduced fat" mean low nutrient. Because "reduced-fat" foods don't have any to meet the same legal criteria as "low-fat" foods, they can be misleading. Low-fat and non-fat foods may be lower in calories when compared with full-fat version, but many processed low-fat and non-fat foods, have just so many calories or even more. They usually contain added sugar, flour, or starch thickeners to improve the flavor and texture after the fat is removed. Since these ingredients add calories, always be be important to check the Nutritional Facts Label for serving size and calories.
