I've been looking into nutritional composition of beverages and I've found something weird: sometimes, when the same product is served in a different container, the nutritional contents on on the packaging changes even though it's supposed to be the same beverage. And yes, I am accounting for serving size. For example, from the Dutch website of my local grocery store:
- Lipton Original sparkling ice tea served in containers of .15 liters say they contain 4.5 grams of sugar per 100 ml and 20 kilocalories;
- Lipton Original sparkling ice tea served in containers of 1.5 liters say they contain 8 grams of sugar per 100 ml and 35 kilocalories.
My assumption was always that in the factories that produce and bottle these beverages, they make these in giant vats of thousands of liters and then assign part to the .15 liter containers and part to the 1.5 liter containers. If this is the case, then why do these contain such massively different nutritional value differences?
