How to read a diet and its nutrition in the fast food industry
The fast food food industry has long struggled to keep its product’s nutritional claims up to date.
In 2016, the Food and Drug Administration released its first food safety guidelines, but those were only the beginning of a long, arduous journey for the industry.
As the industry’s reputation and credibility have declined, consumers have started to question the quality of their food, especially the nutritional content of fast food.
The new FDA guidelines were published on Monday.
But the industry isn’t the only industry in the food safety game.
For example, in the US, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends against fast food and fast-food outlets.
Fast food outlets also face strict standards of nutrition and ingredients that are not as stringent as those for other products, like soft drinks.
So, the question is, how do you find out if your food is actually safe?
