Posted March 23, 2018 09:12:20A McDonalds hamburger is supposed to be healthier than fries.
That’s according to a new study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, which found that the burger is “significantly” better than fries when it comes to calorie density.
McDonalds has been criticized for the high calorie density of the menu items, which are served with a bun, fries and gravy.
McDonalds CEO Jim Easterbrook recently apologized to customers for the burgers being overly dense.
The study analyzed the health claims made by McDonalds about the nutritional content of the hamburger and fries.
It also found that McDonalds has made misleading claims about how many calories and carbohydrates are in the products.
McNuggets and french fries are among the foods tested, but only fries are included in the study.
McDonoughs claims that fries are the most nutritious food, according to the study, which was published last year.
The study also found the calories in the fries were slightly higher than in other foods tested.
But the researchers said there is a “significant” difference in the calorie density between fries and hamburgiers.
McKeen’s, which conducted the study in partnership with the University of California, San Diego, said the study is the first to evaluate the health effects of the fries and the hamburgier.
The results of the study will be presented at a medical conference later this month, McDonalds said.
McDonald’s, in a statement, said it “remains committed to offering healthy options to our customers, and to supporting the research to better understand the health benefits of these popular products.”
