On a recent trip to a convenience store, my friend noticed that the nutritional information for Dairyland Chocolate milk was different for two identical labelled products.
Here is a photo of the 2 types of chocolate milk (side-by-side).
- Same Manufacturer (Dairyland – from Saputo)
- Same milk fat (1%)
- The fat and cholesterol are the same for each serving size.
The main difference are the Nutrition Facts (per 250mL serving).
- The 500mL size has 160 calories and the 1L size has 180 calories.
- The 500mL size has 180 mg of Sodium and the 1L size has 260 mg of sodium.
- The 500mL size has 8g of Protein and the 1L size has 9g of protein.
Here is a closeup of the ingredient list for the 1L serving of Dairyland Chocolate milk
Here is a closeup of the ingredient list for the 500mL serving of Dairyland Chocolate milk
On the Dairyland website, it states that Dairyland chocolate milk is made from fresh, wholesome milk to which cocoa and sugar are added.
What I don’t understand is that why Dairyland has different ingredients for essentially the same product (chocolate milk)?
