Telling a food manufactureer about his new fat-free cake mix

A food manufacturer is advertising a new cake mix as fat-free. Scientists at the U.S. FDA are testing the product to see if it truly lacks fat. Hydrolysis of the cake mix yields glucose, fructose, glyercol, a number of amino acids, and several kinds of molecules with long hydrocarbon chains. Further analysis shows that most of the hydrocarbon chains have a carboxyl group at one end. What would you tell the food manufacturer if you were the spokesperson for the FDA?

Well, long hydrocarbon chains can be seen in fats though not always necessarily have to be fat, similary with the carboxyl groups.

Probably it needs further analysis and a definition of exactly what type of fats it is free from to be sure.
