Sainsbury's in "learning some chemistry" shocker!

Richard just brought in a couple of tetrapaks of "So Organic chick peas". Apparently Sainsbury's have decided that tetrapaks are more environmentally-friendly than cans - I'm guessing because the mass of the tetrapak is much less than that of a steel can, so less energy is needed to transport food in tetras. Anyway, on the back they say:
Ingredients: Chick Peas, Water.
Of the ingredients that can be organic, 100% are organic. Water cannot be organic.

Sainsbury's, you are absolutely right - but probably not for the reason you think.
