Reference food of the same food group

"Reference food of the same food group" means a food which can be substituted in the diet for the food to which it is compared, and which belongs [B.01.500, FDR]:

These reference foods in the same food group do not have to be similar; they are used to make comparative claims, such as "lower in energy", "lower in fat", or "lower in saturated fatty acids". A comparative claim might state, for example, that "our pretzels contain 90% less fat than our regular potato chips."
