Loaded with fat, sugar and salt, we know that fast food isn’t the best thing for us – but we keep eating it anyways. From pizza, to fried chicken to burger combo meals, the fast food industry is massive. However, an industry that big needs to cut corners, relax rules and introduce new techniques when it comes to getting that food to us. Some of these end up being secrets that they really don’t want you to know about. For instance, there’s the fact that quite a bit on that menu is made with genetically modified ingredients. Then there’s issue about just how much of that patty you’re eating is actually beef. Thinking of being smarter? Even that special “healthy” menu is loaded with hidden things that can make it just as bad as the regular menu items. If you’re looking to make your dollar go further then be careful around those value and combo meals because sometimes it just doesn’t add up. Ditching the burgers and chicken for pizza? Just know that pizzas can be loaded with as much terrible stuff as that burger combo you turned down. We’ll look at those suspicious grill marks on that burger or chicken you just bought. We’d like to know how that got there. If you think you’re being smart by dropping in for a breakfast sandwich, we’ll tell you about what’s really in that egg. Then there’s the chili. It’s not always fresh and it’s not what you think it is. Over the last several years sugar has been central to the debate on obesity and health. We’ll tell you about the sugar that fast food companies want to stay quiet on. Finally, we’ll wash it all down with some water. What? Why not a cold drink from the pop machine? We’ll let you know why we stayed away.
