Okay, this may apply in the MPSIMS forums more than it does here, but I often wonder who makes up the rules for what constitutes a serving size on the label of any given food.
I don’t eat potato chips often, but if memory serves me correctly on some labels it says one serving equals about 12 chips. The weird thing is, in most chip bags there are tiny little slivers of chips. Do those count as part of the serving? Also, potato chips vary in size and some are more cooked than others.
Even on a can of butter flavor of Pam, it says and I quote " Serving Size about 1/3 Second Spray (.266g) Where did they come up with this figure? What if some air comes out before it starts to actually spray? What if the contents had not been shaken in a proper manner? How does one count a 1/3 of a second?
Do they pole people from all walks of life then come up with an average figure to determine serving size? Or, is this something that the government has studied to great detail to determine this factor?
Hmmmm, any thoughts?

oppress - to burden harshly, unjustly, or tyrannically.
don’t oppress my ability to have an opinion
