Tesco's definition of healthy....

My other half just bought a Tesco "Healthy Living" sandwich for her lunch.
No Mayo it says, she presumably thought that was good?
Now here's the catch, ingredients:
Bread, Hard-Boiled Egg, Lettuce, Salad Cream..... Crazy
If I'm not mistaken mayonnaise is egg, oil, vinegar....
Salad cream is egg, oil, vinegar, sugar....

and also Mayo is normally Olive, which is a good oil, apart from that she had all the ingredients of mayonnaise

Olive oil? Not in Mayo normally in my experience TBH as the olive flavour is too dominant. (though personally I love olives)
Just had a look, for a laugh, at some Tesco "Light" Mayo: Water, Vegetable Oil (28%), Glucose-Fructose Syrup, Modified Maize Starch, Pasteurised Egg Yolk (2.5%), Salt, Sugar, Spirit Vinegar, Milk Proteins, etc. etc.  Crazy

I think what Tesco states are the calories, sugar, fat, saturates and salt in this sandwich.  They are possibly lower than a standard sandwich although still may be higher than good for you Wink

"healthy" probably refers more to their profit margin than anything else ...

Re: Tesco's definition of healthy....

What an absolute load of rubbish Angry  I hope the PCampaign approve my terminology  Wink  Can you imagine the cost of this conversion. I use Tesco most weeks and have never been confused by their present phrase. 
I suppose their new phrase if interpreted correctly could cause more confusion.  'Up to 10 items' could be seen to mean 9 items are OK but not 10 Grin

The person who triggered this thread (my other half) is very pleased at Tesco's change, but then she is a perfectionist regarding grammar.

Re: Tesco's definition of healthy....

No offence to your other half HPsauce  but  the present phrase is accepted in everyday language and and causes no confusion. Tescos should get on with more important issues.

Er, well it wasn't her that asked them to change (or me that raised the topic) so why say that?  Crazy
