- Pack of twelve, 13-ounce packs (total of 156-ounces)
- A creamy texture and a sweet/smoky flavor
- A dash of honey and a fusion of sesame seeds
It’s all BS
Class Action Lawsuit pending for misleading information
The laboratory showed the label should properly read: 120 calories, 11 grams of fat and 390 mg of sodium. The actual label claims 56 grams of sodium. Federal food labeling laws give companies a 20% margin of error.
UPDATE (Nov.22): Here are the actual laboratory results before being broken down by serving size for Galeo’s World’s Best Miso Caesar:
* Carbohydrates, g/100g – 7.8013
* Fat, g/100g – 38.32
* Moisture, g/100g – 46.39
* Protein, g/100g – 4.1387
* Saturated Fat, g/100g – 6.0
* Calories, g/100 g – 392.64
* Total Sugars, g/100g – 7.35
* Sodium, mg/100g – 1306
Settlement, still worth buying
There is legal info on their website about the lawsuit. From their side the calories were pretty close to their claim and the fat content was almost right on, but they didn’t use the legal serving size. They’ve corrected the label and have to do periodic testing as part of the settlement. The correction isn’t that far from what they originally claimed, but some users of the dressings claim the taste is different, worse, and they must have changed their recipe to make the calories/fat match the labels. My own experience is that this is still a low-cal dressing and I still really like the taste. I couldn’t really tell a taste difference unless I had an old bottle to compare side-by-side, assuming it is actually different. The plus for us is that we now know the label is correct, maybe even more reliably so than most other dressings. So try it and like it, or don’t. I do still suggest not buying by the case, it just doesn’t last long enough. Also watch expiration dates in store carefully, lots of stores not good about rotating and this still isn’t a big seller so it’s more likely to sit longer. I’m buying it though. Bottom line is still taste and calories, which is great on both counts.
Best dressing ever!
Tastes Great, Low Fat, Low Carb — NOT
3/2011 Update — See above review for info on Class Action Lawsuit for misleading labeling. The suit is not settled, but we had a feeling the contents were too good to be true. Still one of the best tasting dressings though.
