Food Packaging

I have noticed a couple of odd statements on food packaging in the last couple of days. Yesterday I had some pulled pork, whose packet proudly claimed that it had 10% more meat. 10% more than what? Based on the meat content, my guess would be that it is 10% more than their vegetarian version of the dish.

Today I looked at a tin of Ovaltine which stated that it was fat and cholesterol free. This is only true if you were to eat the powder. The moment you add milk as per the instructions this statement will no longer be true.
