Subject: Dolmio and Uncle Ben's firm Mars advises limit on products

Written By: Philip Eno on 04/15/16 at 6:35 am

The company behind Dolmio and Uncle Ben's sauces says some products should only be consumed once a week due to high salt, sugar or fat content. Mars Food said it would distinguish between "everyday" and "occasional" items on packs and website. The company said some foods were higher in salt, sugar or fat to maintain the "authentic" taste of products. The National Obesity Forum described the move as "hugely unusual" but "very imaginative". The advice is part of Mars's Health and Wellbeing Ambition to "create and promote healthier food choices". Mars told the BBC that just 5% of its products would be labelled "occasional". These include Dolmio lasagne sauces, pesto, and carbonara and macaroni oven kits, and Uncle Ben's oriental sauces.
