King Nutrition Facts
How do Burger King nutrition facts stack up against other fast food
As you would expect there is not much to choose between a Big Mac and a
But Burger King is just around the corner, you are having a fast food
craving, and you know you shouldn’t but… you are going in. So just how
much damage to your waistline are you going to with the Burger King
If you watch calories or cholesterol, by now you should be in tune with
the fact that anything grilled is better than anything fried, and salad
is good as long as you stick with fat free dressing. This rule holds
true at Burger King as it does in most of the fast food places. But be
careful with Burger King’s chicken salad if you watch your cholesterol.
Even the grilled chicken salad has 80 milligrams of cholesterol.
Here are some more facts from the Burger King nutrition chart to help
you make the best possible choices.
The TENDERGRILL® Breaded Tender Crisp Salad has 410
calories, 22 grams of fat, and 70 mg cholesterol whereas the
TENDERGRILL® Chicken Filet Salad has 240 calories, 9 grams of fat and
80 milligrams of cholesterol. Stay away from that salad dressing,
because according to Burger King’s nutrition chart, Ken’s Honey Mustard
dressing adds a further 270 calories, 23 grams of fat, and 20
milligrams of cholesterol. The fat free ranch dressing is a much better
choice with 60 calories, no fat and no cholesterol.
Let’s look at the worst things on the menu. The TRIPLE WHOPPER™ with
Cheese, has a whopping 1230, 740 of which are from fat. That’s over 60%
fat - 82 grams of fat in fact and 275 milligrams of cholesterol. So
don’t order that unless you have a death wish.
If you are wondering if the veggie burger is a better choice, the
answer is… maybe, but not completely. The BK VEGGIE® Burger with Cheese
has 470 calories, 180 from fat. Without cheese it has 420 calories,
with 150 from fat, 16 grams fat total and 10 mg of cholesterol. Take
note though that the 150 calories from fat is still 35% fat, and
nutritionists recommend that adults try to keep their fat intake to
around 30% of their total calorie intake. So depending on what else you
eat that day, the Veggie Burger is right on the edge.
A Burger King WHOPPER® has 670 calories, 39 grams fat, and 95 mg
cholesterol. Think Chicken is better? At fast food restaurants, chicken
is often not a better alternative to red meat due to the fat they use
when they cook it. Burger King nutrition facts indicate that Burger
King is no different from other fast foods in this regard. The Original
Chicken Sandwich has 660 calories and 40 grams of fat. 5 Crown-shaped
CHICKEN TENDERS® tenders have 210 calories, 110 of which are from fat –
52%. Add a small fries to 5 tenders and you are in for 230 additional
calories. Make it a king size fries and you will add 600 calories. If
you are on a 1200 calorie a day diet, the chicken sandwich and king
size fries will do you for the whole day, but won’t provide all the
nutrition your body needs. Thinking of adding the onion rings for your
vegetable? That will add another 300 calories (compare to about 20 for
an actual onion).
Finishing up with desert? Burger King nutrition indicates that the
Dutch Apple Pie or the HERSHEY®’s Sunday Pie are your best choices with
300 calories each, and
the OREO® BK™ SUNDAE SHAKE Oreo Cookie Crumbles is the absolute worst
with 940 calories, 31 grams of fat and 75 milligrams of
