That's exactly what I was addressing. If they both used 40g then the corn chex would have 1.28.... cups in a serving

I understand that a lot of this has to do with rounding. But for the layperson one says 5% of DV while the other says 7% of DV while both say 2g of dietary fiber.

Don't get me wrong. I definitely read and pay attention to these labels, but I think the system is highly flawed. In the EU and EY IINM they have the values per 100g.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

I'm drowning in blue milk but wish we got more chocolate milk.

What I'm really really drowning in is apples! Anyone have some recipes that don't need peeling? Or maybe does someone own a horse?

I'm sure someone can find a recipe for apples in cholent, specially for you!

Grand idea for you, you can make from each bottle of red milk double, just dilute with equal amount of water :)
when I was in yeshiva in EY, the yeshiva was floating in debt they hired someone to make `seder`,
1st thing he did was cut on the milk, 'crazy everyone drinks a full cup of milk, even at home you dont do it' so to limit consumption he filled a bucket with half milk and half hot water so it will only be good to add in the coffee

the bucherim complained that the farmer that sells to tnuva mixes half milf and half water, then tnuva does the same, and then yeshiva mixes half water, only to have some in the coffee and then you need to wait a half hour to eat fleishig

eventually he changed 1 bag per table

Shrug. Not sure why that matters.

That seems to be true - not a ton of regulation on the data - I think you can safely assume that calories are 20-30% underestimated

It is in EY. But I often find that confusing - you don't measure your portions based on grams - but based on volume

Do you truly believe there is no difference in flavor between skim milk and water?  What I failed to mention is that 95% (or more) of what I drink is skim milk and water (not mixed), preference leaning significantly toward skim milk.  They taste nothing alike, and that's ignoring the other components of milk.  While I may concede that there's likely more sugar in 8 oz of skim milk than 8 oz of red milk, because the volume of milk vs. fat is greater (and let's be clear, the milk we get has had the fat removed and then added back), the small difference is not make it or break it, if not insignificant.
Do you need pride of the farm? The difference in taste is tremendous.
The thing with the hamster is that running on the wheel is actually what it is trying to do.

The real question here is why exgingi has rice Chex in his house.... It must be just for the purpose of comparing nutrition facts, because nobody really eats those, right?

Of course we're using that but doesn't compare to the taste of bottled chocolate milk

I do not have any citation to quote, just my plain old healthy gut critical thinking instincts.

Could you please advise on the process food manufacturers/processors/packagers go through in order to produce said labels.
It's regulated by the FDA.

Both need peeling, no? We've been doing applesauce but that's about 20 apples a week, we're getting up to 72 apples a week for weeks already

Nope, neither. You just need a food mill for applesauce and a strainer for cider
