INGREDIENT OF THE DAY: propylene glycol alginate
In this show, I’ll examine in detail the ingredient compositions and nutritional breakdowns of two similar meals from two fast food restaurants to answer such questions as: (1) Is there really a difference between fast food and the types of highly processed foods found in the typical grocery store?; (2) Are the rumors true that fast food is intrinsically unhealthy?; and (3) In terms of ingredients and nutrients, how similar are fast food meals in different restaurants? Hang onto your seats; this is going to be a data driven ride!
