Halls logo – The factory in the orchards – Sounds so healthy and homely. This sure is a cocktail of poison and the E numbers are an unknown unless you know them all in your head.
Tomato juice (cooked but not mentioned- this increases the acidity of tomato)
Sugar (another product with added sugar)
Flavourants – Now what would they be?

Now after all that Tiger Brands – one of the big boys in SA tells you this encouraging information. So if you were on a diet, had high blood pressure wouldn’t you, based on the following information think that this was a great product.
Calories = 110kJ = 1%
Sugars = 1g = 1%
Fat = 0,0g = 0%
Saturates 0,0% = 0%
Salt 0,0g = 0% So, if salt is the third ingredient on the list, how come it says that salt is 0,0grams.
Well I leave you to decide if this is a tomato cocktail that you would like to drink.
