French women don’t get fat…

…and they also don’t know the nutritional content of what they eat?

In a new study published in the British Food Journal, researchers found that Americans tend to know more about the fat content in their foods compared to the French (with Canadians falling in between the two).

Which is interesting, considering the obesity issue in the U.S.

Quick — what’s the fat content of whole milk?

55 percent of French respondents didn’t know, compared to 5 percent of Canadians and 4 percent of Americans. (I got the answer wrong, btw, I guessed three percent…oops!).

(As an aside — I love how the writeup refers to the French, the Americans, and the Quebecers…did Quebec become a country when I wasn’t paying attention?)
