Spray Butter Zero Calories Debunked

Posted: March 25, 2008 in food

I love spray butter. The zero calories on the side says it all. If I can save calories on the small things to enjoy the big things, I’m all over it. I was always skeptical on how it could be 0 calories, but now I know why. Apparently each spray is .9 calories. So why aren’t these companies getting in trouble for misleading the public consumer? The FDA actually allows companies to round down when compiling the information. So each spray is really 1 calorie and not the ultimate diet staple I was led to believe.

Oh yeah, that royal with cheese (Double Quarter Pounder for those who have never seen Pulp Fiction – get with it people!) at McDonald’s? it’s probably 741 calories, not 740. 🙂
