Is it impossible to trust big brands? Amid health scandals and misleading packages, it’s hard to know where to turn. Fortunately for buyers, the magazine has 60 million consumers watching and warning them!
Palm oil is a product that boasts that it has no ingredients!
The magazine highlights the Primevère brand’s lie about its margarine. Basically, on the package, it is said that the product does not contain palm oil. It is of real interest to consumers if we know that palm oil can ruin the planet and is not good for health. But if we look closely, we can see if the label that the product… is made of palm oil. So this is a deliberate lie on the part of the brand.
” Find the fault! The reference to “no palm oil” is shown on the large tray, but we read on the back that it “contains palm oil”. With palm oil or not? Primevère explained to us that it was a printing error and guaranteed that this margarine was empty. And leave the products on the shelf. What leaves the consumer confused“, the magazine posted on its site.
Studies of 60 million consumers
The magazine wants customers to know exactly what they are buying. Don’t always rely on packaging. The packaging is sometimes too detailed to be attractive. But that doesn’t mean the products are good for your health. It’s the same with prices: the most qualitative products aren’t always the most expensive.
Consider the example of chocolate powder. Several brands were studied in the magazine. So about fifteen brands were examined. Of all the products, the magazine laments a sugar content that is even higher… for all brands: ” Thus, a 200 ml bowl provides an average of 20 g of sugar: this represents 40% of the recommended drink!“.
In its ranking, the Ovaltine brand points to the last position. Why? Due to the high sugar content and the presence of additives. That’s why it’s one of the few brands that doesn’t draw a line under controversial ingredients. The Canderel brand also has a problem with Cankao not being aspartame. 60 million consumers regret the presence of three synthetic sweeteners in its composition. So these are two bad students.
Other well-known brands are also not proud because 60 million consumers promote low cocoa content. Shame on hot chocolate, but it’s real. Ovaltine brand hot chocolate contains only 13% cocoa. On the back, almost bad for Banania (19%) and Nesquik (23%).
The French no longer trusted
Simply put, there is no week without a health scandal, more importantly. Amidst the presence of harmful bacteria and brand lies, it is difficult to know which products to buy. The recent pizza scandal in Buitoni has not reassured the French, especially when we know that some children have died.
A magazine like 60 million consumers is there to help you make the right choice. To take the example of powdered chocolate, the magazine only highlights bad students. Good students are clearly quoted.
So, the three good student brands that top the rankings are: first in class, the Jolivia brand with raw organic cocoa powder. With a nice mark of 16.5/20, the product can boast of having a composition that will not harm your health.. Just behind is the Naturela brand, with pure lean cocoa, and no added sugar. Finally, in third place, Van Houten, with his unsweetened organic cocoa. The nutritional values of these cocoa powders are very good.
