McDonald’s has more calories, sugar in its menu than 30 years ago
Claims of healthier food by the world’s largest fast-food chain McDonald’s Food Corp. turned out to be just “Big Mac and lies” as recent scrutiny by non-government group Action on Sugar showed that the food the chain offers in its current menu have more calories compared to 30 years ago.
Professor Graham McGregor of Action On Sugar said that McDonald’s is clearly lagging behind in terms of cutting down calories, salt, and sugar to its food items.
In fact, McGregor said that sugar in its gurbs —including Big Mac and Filet-O-Fish — were three times higher than its burgers; while protein content in foods dropped by 20 percent.
McDonald’s earlier said that it is capping fat and calorie content in its menu to about 500.
