A food can say that it is 99% fat free and still have lots of fat. How can that be? An ounce of low-fat cheese has about 7/100 of a gram of fat so, by weight, the cheese is only about 7% fat. However, it's more important to look at what percent calories come from fat. In this case, more than a third of the calories come from fat.
