What The Hell Is In Your Fast Food?

French fries

Simple potatoes, deep-fried in a vat of boiled oil, and finally sprinkled with salt. What could be simpler than that? Apparently, quite a lot. Fast-food fries usually contain more than 15 ingredients, including sugar and artificial coloring. They also have preservatives like acid sodium diphosphate and tert-butylhydroquinone, and high doses of Hydroquinone are linked to vision problems.

Hamburgers

Ground beef, right? Sure-but there may also be growth hormones and antibiotics that eventually get into your system. In one study, some burgers had more than 100 more calories per serving than fast-food restaurants reported.

Club soda

This is the same soda you bought at the grocery store. But when you buy it at the fast food restaurant, you get more calories because the size of the drink is so large. We’re not talking about“Extra large.”. In a typical fast-food restaurant, a large soda is about 32 ounces and has about 270 calories. Studies show that if you order it, you will drink it.

Breakfast sandwich

Some of the ingredients listed in a national store’s so-called “Omelette” include modified corn starch, soybean oil, medium-chain triglyceride, propylene glycol, artificial flavors, citric acid, xanthan gum, and-oh yes-egg whites and yolks (listed separately) . If you’re not haggling over these items, ask for propylene glycol (also used in atomizers and in making polyester) to be added to the side.

Hot Dogs

What’s in them? We can only say that they make the most of the animals that provide the meat. They also contain salt and saturated fat (most Americans eat too much) as well as nitrate, a preservative linked to diabetes and cancer.

Chicken Nuggets

A chicken breast starched and fried to a golden brown? Not exactly. There is meat, but there are also bones, blood vessels, nerves, connective tissue and skin. And they are rich in salt and fat, which has been linked to obesity, diabetes and heart disease.

Strawberry Milkshake

In addition to milk and sugar, a leading fast-food restaurant adds high-fructose corn syrup, sodium benzoate and other preservatives, as well as artificial flavors and pigments to the drinkable dessert. There seems to be one thing missing: real strawberries.

Sauce

The first ingredient on the list of almost all sauces served at fast food restaurants is sugar. It might be called sucrose, glucose, maltose, rice syrup, barley malt, high-fructose corn syrup, or whatever, but the end result is the same: lots of calories, fast, but the nutritional value is almost zero.
