To go shopping, you have to be more and more attentive to what you buy and, of course, look at the labels with a magnifying glass. And it is that there are products that we believe are the same, but much cheaper, and this has an explanation.
There are some, for example, chocolate or ice cream, that are sold to us as such, but in reality they have less quality than what they offer us.
The trick is that the ingredients change, which means that, in addition to being cheaper, they are of lower quality.
It happens, for example, in chocolate, which must have a minimum of 35% dry matter, 14% dry defatted cocoa and 18% cocoa butter, as explained by Boticaria García.
To make it cheaper, they have replaced cocoa butter with palm oil, which is less expensive.
It also happens with ice cream, in which the fat and proteins have to be of dairy origin, but since it is more expensive, it is replaced by vegetable fats.
Regarding the legality of the practice, it can be carried out as long as the manufacturer warns of it with a letter that is not less than 75% of the size of the denomination.
