Which fast food is safe to eat?
Fast food is often seen as a healthy alternative to a McDonald’s burger, but a recent study suggests the fast food chain may be making the meal more nutritious.
The study, published in the journal Food Quality and Preference, found that a portion of a McDonalds hamburger contains 1.6 grams of vitamin C per 100g, but the amount of vitamin A and folate in a McDonaldsand burger is only about half that.
That’s not a huge difference, but McDonalds also uses “high-protein” chicken breast, which has more protein than the hamburger.
McDonalds said that the study, which was based on data from a study conducted in Japan, showed that a McDonaldSand burger contains more vitamin C than a hamburger that is similar in size and shape to McDonalds.
McD’s spokesperson Sarah Goggin told CNNMoney that the company does not have an exact figure on the amount that it uses, but she said that a typical McDonaldsand has “about 4.5 grams of protein per 100 grams.”
McDonald’s also said that it has been improving its nutritional content of its hamburgers to help consumers better understand the nutritional value of the food they eat.
