Thank you for the excellent video on reading labels - I had no idea of all the loopholes.

Quaker Oats has only 15 calories from fat, .5 each of saturated, poly, and mono.
Since all of these have the same ingredient (Just oats), are these differences significant, and where do they come from? Is it possible that the Oven Toasted Oats where toasted with a little oil, but so little that they don't have to list it as an ingredient.

On many lables, under ingredients you will find something like, contains less than 2% of ( X, Y, Z)
What does it mean? Does it mean that it is 2%(x+y+z)? or it is 2% X +2% Y + 2% Z)?
I'm guessing it is former but just want to be sure.
If it said 2% of each of (X,Y, Z) then the 2nd part will apply . Just want to make sure.

PS: I told you, the IRS Taxcode is easier to understand and has less loopholes.
