Do you expect fish in your fish pie?

If you’re looking at the economy products at your local supermarket as a way of cutting food bills, this report in today’s Sunday Times might change your mind.
The report finds sausages with just 6 per cent pork and fish pie with just 9 per cent fish.
Typically the rest of the products are packed out with “water, animal fat and sugar”.
As Tim Lang, professor of food policy at City University, is quoted as saying: “It’s about consumer expectations. You would expect a fisherman’s pie, for example, to be mostly fish. If it contains mostly potato with 9% fish then it should be called potato pie with a bit of fish.”
Shocking findings which will leave cost cutters with that sinking health feeling – yet again.
