Just recently, fast food chain Chipotle Co. made headlines all over the world by doing away with genetically modified food ingredients. This has led to a much healthier outlook for many of their customers, and also a wake up call to other fast food chains to implement the same dramatic change to their policies. If you would like to know which of your favorite fast food chains are still non-GMO, you might want to check out this list we’ve come up with. Even our hearts break at the sight of some of these.
Subway is known for using soybean oil, which doesn’t mean good news as soy is already considered GMO. Mineral oils are also used, making them hypocritical for a brand which promotes good health. Surely, folks who have been firm believers in Subway as a healthy choice should start second guessing themselves, right? Even the leafy veggies aren’t organic
Bagels seem harmless, don’t they? That is, until you realize that they use soy lecithin in the baking process. If you didn’t know, soy is actually a common GMO ingredient. Consuming too much of it can lead to health problems down the line.
This breaks our hearts, as we love Pizza Hut. All that gooey cheese and the various meats that you’ve come to love are far from organic, truth be told. Expect a lot of glutens, allergens and, of course, MSG.
We seriously wonder why people love Burger King. If you’re looking for greasy junk food, there are way better and tastier choices out there. Personally, we feel that their burgers are a bit drab and dull. This makes it even more surprising that there’s a lot of monosodium glutamate to be found in the meats, as well as the fries.
If you thought that bread was devoid of any GMOs, think again. The fact is that their bagels are full of monosodium glutamate. While many stand by Au Bon Pain for their tasty breads and pastries, you might want to start learning how to bake. That way, you are free to choose only the freshest and healthiest ingredients.
It’s bad enough that you’re made to feel guilty over the Glazed Donuts being quite fattening. That’s not the end of it, though. Krispy Kreme donuts are made using hydrogenated oils, which are essentially poisonous when consumed in large quantities. Hence, the next time you’re thinking of stopping by at the nearest Krispy Kreme outlet, remember this fact.
