    Can anyone explain what is/was the difference between 123, Winning Points and Pure Points?

    I'm not sure about Pure Points but the difference between the 123 and Winning points is how they
    treated fiber. Winning points caps the number of fiber grams to 4 while 123 did not cap them.

    I believe Pure Points may be the ww program that is used in the UK. Which would also explain why
    there it only asks for calories and sat. fat - no fiber. The UK program only takes calories and
    saturated fat into consideration when calculating points ... one of the variances between the
    programs offered in various countries. In other conversations here, I believe these differences are
    due because of the different laws as to reporting nutritional data. Fiber may not be readily
    available on all items in the UK, but is required in the US.

    Well they introduced the Points programme a few years ago but made some additions last year, so
    I guess instead of changing the name they added the Plus. The oldies would then recognise the
    old Points, but would notice that something changed. At least that 's what I think, I don't
    know for sure.
