A thorough investigation by consumer watchdog Choice has revealed that many frozen yoghurt (froyo) outlets could be violating Australian Consumer Law as well as making health claims that are highly exaggerated and untrue.
Further, many of these stores did not have the nutritional information of their products ready.
Froyo stores advertise that their products can help slow down the ageing process. According to Food policy advisor at Choice, Angela McDougall, these claims are completely false.
It is imperative to adopt a standard kilojoule-labelling system for take-away food outlets so that consumers can make a healthy choice.
