1 Brand / product
This is a sample of the more than 30 brands/types of ‘low-carb’ processed foods that we found in the major supermarket chains in May 2005. We’ve paired them with the closest conventional equivalent we could find. They’re in no particular order.
2 Serve size
Manufacturers’ recommended serve sizes vary. For ease of comparison we’ve used standardised serve sizes, unless the product is a single unit, such as a muesli bar.
3 Price per serve
This is based on the price we paid in Sydney supermarkets in May 2005. We bought the conventional version in the packet/container size that most closely matched the low-carb product.
