The survey revealed that many foods which are sold as 'low in fat' are found to have the same number of calories as the standard options. Infact, some of them were found to contain more sugar.

The study showed that labeling regulations are not clearly understood by consumers and they opt for low-fat and light options assuming they are a healthier choice.
