Did you know that some fast-food sandwiches can have as many as 50 different ingredients in them? Or that the grill marks on fast-food chicken don’t come from the grill?
Get savvy, get online and do a little research. Some of these fast-food chains use a whole host of ingredients that come from a laboratory, while others have chosen to opt out and use ingredients that come from a farm.
Look for the terms like “natural flavor,” “extract” or “essence.” They are code names for a whole list of other things and can be used as synonyms to disguise hidden ingredients.
