Dear Lyn
According to the new SA labelling regulations a food can be regarded as low-fat if it does not contain more than 3 gram of fat per 100g in the case of liquids. For liquids it is 1.5 gram per 100 ml. To be classed as virtually fat-free solids/liquids should not contain more than 0.5 gram fat per 100g or 100 ml.
