McDonald’s more than triples amount of sugar in their hamburgers

Hamburger and french fries

Despite McDonald’s promises to make healthier products, the amount of sugar in their hamburgers is more than three times greater compared to what it was in 1989.

You would perhaps not expect to find a significant amount of sugar in a hamburger, but these days there is actually 9 grams of sugar in one single Big Mac hamburger (probably mostly in the bun).

    In Germany a Big Mac has 4 g sugar (carbs 20 g).

    Is any of it in the meat? I like a Quarter Pounder without the bun or ketchup.
