For a product to be fat free, it must contain less than 0.5g of fat per serving. This is all very well if we eat the stated serving size of that food, say one cookie. But if we consume more than a serving of that food, it ceases to be fat free. All those fractions of a gram will count towards your daily fat intake. Remember, fat free doesn't mean calorie free.
