Here are the best prepared meals according to 60 million consumers
The magazine 60 Millions de consommateurs has just published a survey on ready meals. And contrary to popular belief, some stand out and contain little or no additives.
Very practical to eat, ready meals have always had a bad reputation: dubious origin of the ingredients, presence of numerous additives, portion size … To help consumers see things more clearly, the magazine 60 Millions de consommateurs has covered the subject extensively in comparison of various products available in supermarkets in several categories: moussaka, couscous, fish products and Basque chicken.
In general, the editors welcome the advances in additives and transparency in the composition. Another lesson from the survey: “Special brands or national brands perform slightly better,” reported journalist Patricia Chairopoulos on the RTL microphone. After all, fish dishes have “virtually no additives”.
In its ranking, 60 million consumers recommend the E.Leclerc brand moussaka for its good value for money. Weight Watchers couscous is also first in its category. For fish-based dishes, Picard stands out with his cod.
At the end of its research, the magazine recalls that nutritionists recommend eating no more than two to three ready meals a week.
