Just last week, Burger King launched ‘diet chips’ for their health conscious customers.
The new ‘Satisfries’ are said to have 30% less fat than the standard fries because of the new ingredients.
“We will offer our guests a new fat-reduced option without compromising on taste,” said Bianca Shen, VP Marketing and Communications.
Apparently, the new recipe ensures the fries don’t absorb as much fat during frying, while offering a ‘great tasting French fry that is crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside.’
The ‘healthy’ chips have a crinkle-cut so the staff can tell the difference when serving, but will still be made in the same fryers as regular fries.
The low-fat fries were introduced in the U.S and Canada six months ago and are now available in Ireland and the U.K.
