Light-Produkte versprechen Genuss ohne Reue. Bei genauerer Betrachtung stellt sich aber heraus, dass es sich um eine Marketingstrategie handelt. Light-Produkte sind Imitate des Orignals, bei dem ein oder mehrere Bestandteile ersetzt werden.

In den letzten Jahren findet man immer mehr Produkte mit dem Beinamen „light“ in den Supermärkten. Sie werden als gesunde und kalorienarme Alternative beworben. Im Regal sind sie leicht am blassen Farbcode zu erkennen.

The United States is among the world’s largest sugar producers. Sugar production increased when the U.S cut ties with Cuba in the 60’s, and stopped importing sugar from them. Even more sugar began being produced since government farm subsidies were introduced in the 90’s. Since then the production of the cheap sugar alternative high fructose corn syrup has increased and started making way into more and more American foods. HFCS increased from 2.2 million tons in 1980 to an average 9.2 million tons in the 2000s. Demand for HFCS is driven by demand for products that use the syrups as inputs.

Food, inc. (2008) Robbert Kenner

In this way, they could pay them a low wage. The kitchen became basically a factory. The food was inexpensive and tasted good, that’s what made McDonald’s a great success. McDonalds became the largest purchaser of ground beef in the United States. They wanted their hamburgers to tastes, everywhere, exactly the same. They changed how ground beef is produced.
