  1. Fast food as you are already familiar is major ‘junk’. It is unhealthy- mostly rich in starch and fats. In addition, they sugary too! However, the sugar is not added for the taste, but for the color and crsipiness. Have you tried frying fries at home? Is it as crispy and brown as the ones from the local fast food restaurant? Sugar is sprinkled on the fries before frying (ideally it forms a coating). During frying, the sugar caramelises and forms a slight brown tinge on the fries. In addition, it makes the fries firm and crispy to eat.

    Isn’t that another reason to stay away from fast food joints?
