    It's called taking the ****

    Have a look round the pack to see what the real percentage is.

    Cos it's dried :)

    For example, you take 115g of ground up pork meat and treat it to make a 100g peperami, losing 15g of water in the process.

    Work out %age meat = mass of meat / mass of end product * 100 = 115%

    I think, just a guess though! :p

    Good guess

    Same reason some jam has more than 100g fruit per 100g jam.

    I thought I should reply about that, but that would have invited our resident mardy man G-MAN2004 to come and complain about common internet phenomena appearing in yet another thread. :D
