Not About Food 6

question for non-american folks and food labels.

Is it common for prepared edible products in other countries to tout supposed health benefits?

I, for one, find texts espousing the bowel movements you are going to have after eating yogurt to be in poor taste. Maybe it is just me.

Are Americans uniquely susceptible to this? Do Scotts have labels all over their oatmeal telling them about their cholesterol? Do Spaniards read about their Omega-3's on their canned sardines?
