What does Fat-Free mean?
Silhouette is a product with 0 grams of fat. Nada, zip, absolutely no fat. However, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency only allows products to be labelled “free of fat”, "fat-free", "no fat", "0 fat", "zero fat", "without fat", "contains no fat", "non-fat" as long as they contain:
(a) less than 0.5 g of fat per reference amount and serving of stated size; or
(b) less than 0.5 g of fat per serving of stated size, if the food is a pre-packaged meal.
Danone achieves a completely fat-free yogurt by a specialized milk skimming process to extract dairy fat. During Silhouettes' skimming operation, fat is separated from the milk which results in two products: skim milk and cream.
What does "no added sugar" mean?
Silhouette has no sugar added which means it does not contain added: white sugar, a food that contains white sugar, brown sugar, syrup, molasses, glucose, honey or fructose. Instead, Silhouette uses a sweetener called sucralose. That said, "no added sugar" doesn't mean there is no sugar in the product. Silhouette contains sugar in its natural form from milk (lactose) and fruit (fructose).
