Hungry Jack's Ultimate Double Whopper burger has been rated as the
unhealthiest fast food option in Australia. In order to provide better
information to people regarding fast foods; the consumer organization Choice sampled
menus from Hungry Jacks, McDonalds, Pizza Hut, Subway, Dominos, KFC, Red
Rooster and Oporto.
With 80.5 grams of fat, 2.3 grams of sodium and 5085 kilojoules, the Ultimate
Double Whopper burger accounts for nearly 60% of an adult's recommended daily
calorie intake. Choice spokeswoman Ingrid Just said, "When you add chips
and a soft drink to something like the Ultimate Double Whopper, you're
consuming a day's worth of kilojoules in one meal."
In a bid to fight the obesity epidemic Choice wants
that all fast food outlets across the country should declare kilojoules on
their menus by February 2012.
