Supplementary notes

*This source adds the following information: "Percentages are of the total packaging weight for each supermarket, without the food. We chose 46 items from each supermarket’s standard own-brand range and were specified by weight and/or size. Where it wasn’t possible to select an exact weight or size match, we chose the closest available. If an item wasn’t available in the standard range, we substituted it with the equivalent item in the premium range where available. If an item wasn’t available in one supermarket, it was removed for the other supermarkets."
