My mother was a big fan of Pep.  When it started to disappear from supermarket shelves, she wrote to Kellogg's to complain, and in response they sent her an entire case of it for free.

Here’s another ‘30s advertisement for Pep:

I love stories like that!
Remember when companies used to employ people who could afford to give a shit?!

Look at the numbers of servings per container.

Look at the numbers of servings per container.

If the number of calories from Carbs, fat or protein is less than 1 they don't count that in servings. But they calculate the total calories per container differently, and have to count them.

So, it's 1 + 1 +1 * 3 and then rounding up due to the approximation.

Simple.

That doesn't make any sense.

I vaguely remember that if the number of calories per serving is less than 5, they can call it 0.

What part?

In serving estimates if any source is less than 1 calorie it’s zero. There are three sources less than zero.

In container size you calculate the calories in from each source, and that’s three from each. And because the number of servings is an approximation, you round the total up.

So 10. It’s not rocket science. It’s mainstream nutrition policy.

What do you mean by "each source"? There are allegedly 3 servings in the container.

And if each serving has less than 1 calorie (which means they're counted as zero), then how do they add up to 3?

What do you mean by "each source"? There are allegedly 3 servings in the container.

And if each serving has less than 1 calorie (which means they're counted as zero), then how do they add up to 3?

There are three sources of calories: carbs, fat and protein.

They don’t add up to 3 in the “per serving” calculation. They add up to zero. The size of the serving is an approximation “about”

The “per container” is a separate calculation, based on total calories from each source in the container, and they round up.
