    Basically the nutritional information is strange:

    Typical values per 100g -> 147cal
    Typical values per pot (70g)-> 422cal

    How can 70g have more calories than 100g?

    The calories are 100g vs 270g, not 70g. I assume the 70g is the dry weight (as it is sold, so it's in the product title) and 270g is the weight once you've added the water and so on?

    That would be an error on their part, each pot is 270g, rather than just plain 70g. Seems that the kcal has changed also.

    Without water - Typical values per 100g -> 147cal
    With - Typical values per pot (70g)-> 422cal

    But, water has NO CALORIES! Do some google research to confirm that. Water has zero calories because it is chemically inert. How can adding water increase calories from 147 to 422? Something is wrong here.

    That's great. I shall assume that you don't buy your foot at your big supermarket and instead eat natural (non-genetically modified) food.
    I would like to see your monthly spending on food.

    At all? Most products at big supermarkets are not natural, that's why they are there. Gotcha! :cool:
