This year, the nominees range from baby biscuits to a protein drink, tinned soup to culinary oil.
“We could have nominated hundreds of misleading products, because legal fraud is everywhere in the supermarket,“ Sophie Unger, head of research and campaigns for Foodwatch Germany, said.
“In the end, we had to pin it down to five nominees, which show different examples on how consumers are mislead: legal fraud on ingredients or health benefits.“
The voting process opened this week (23 October) and will run until 26 November.

Last year, 24,000 people voted in Foodwatch Netherland's competition. Healthy People’s blueberry and raspberry 'super fruit' juice claimed first prize thanks to an ingredient list containing only 12% blueberry, 1% raspberry and 87% standard apple juice.
In 2014, the vote was organised by Foodwatch Germany and an infant drink by Alete 'Trinkmahlzeit' won first prize.
