Jumbo's Goudeerlijk cornbread won the 'Gouden Windei' award as the most misleading product of the year, food watchdog Foodwatch announced on Friday. According to the watchdog, this cornbread is baked without cornmeal and only contains corn pieces for decoration. The corn-yellow color is created by adding the spice turmeric, ANP reports.

Of the 15 thousand people who participated in this public election, 31 percent voted for Jumbo's corn bread. 

Aldi's calf liver sausage, made without calf liver, came in second place with 21 percent of the votes. Unilever came in third place with its Conimex Ketjap manis gold. According to Foodwatch, this ketchup is only "pouring syrup with a ketchup taste". 

Manufacturer Innocent's 'Super juice Raspberry & cherry' and Albert Heijn's 'Muesli high fiber' also received many votes.

Most of these manufacturers announced that they've already modified these products, or are in the process of doing so.
