What is the cheapest staple in the supermarket? We took notes today. I looked for the cheapest brand, and the best price per unit. Food values obtained from labels, or the Food Standards Authority. Yes, I accounted for the banana peel (by weighing a handy test banana; didn’t have a taro to hand, sorry, and you can eat kumara and potato peel if you scrub them).
I’ve sorted this table by price. I reckon if you sorted it by nutritional value, it would pretty much be reversed.
||Price ($)||Price/kg||kJ per 100g||kJ per $1|
And we wonder why poor people are fat.
