Default How much avocado is in store bought avocado dip?

http://health.yahoo.net/experts/eatt...ur-weight-gain

Most guacamoles with the word “dip” attached to the label suffer from a lack of real avocado. Take Dean’s Guacamole, for example. This guacamole dip is composed of less than 2 percent avocado; the rest of the green goo is a cluster of fillers and chemicals, including modified food starch, soybean oils, locust bean gum, and food coloring. Dean’s is not alone in this offense. In fact, this avocado caper was brought to light when a California woman filed a lawsuit against Kraft after she noticed “it just didn’t taste avocadoey.”


wtfbbq? Less than 2 percent avocado? That's scary.

Yeah the ones at the supermarket near us are labelled 1% avocado. Such BS. And it's disgusting too.

Because it doesn't taste good. And also because it's misleading to advertise something as guacamole (an avocado-based dip) when it contains almost no avocado.

Sadly, that pretty much sums up the culinary appreciation of most Americans.
