Things that workers of fast food will not tell you about

Секретные фишки фастфудов

Fast food, fast food, fast food, fast food (fast food and fast food) - food with reduced consumption and cooking time, with simplified or eliminated cutlery or outside the table. For the public fast-food are snack bars, razg. "snack bars".

Fastfoods have firmly established themselves in our daily lives, and far from everyone can resist or resist its temptation. We at Shram.kiev.ua collected chips that safely use fast food restaurants, first to lure us to ourselves, and then sell and pay as much as possible.

1. All dishes have the same taste

Did you notice that different fast food dishes have almost the same taste? And all because they know that people like food with different taste tones: salty, sweet, spicy. Food from fast food is calibrated in such a way as to satisfy all these needs at once.

2. Burgers are preparing instantly

The preparation of the most simple burger in large networks takes only 30 seconds. The reason for this - deep freeze, which is exposed to meat, before you get to the restaurant kitchen.

3. They are designed to be quickly eaten

Another trick that forces us to eat in fast food restaurants is more: the food that is served there does not need a long chewing. According to the research, full people perform an average of 12 masticatory movements before swallowing food, while thin people make about 15. The less we chew food, the less we saturate and eventually eat more.

4. The colors around you arouse the appetite

Red and yellow are most often used in the fast food industry for a reason. They are perfectly combined and cause a subconscious desire to stop and grab a bite. Some even call this fact "the theory of ketchup and mustard", the colors of which push us unconsciously to spontaneous or excessive meals.

5. The main goal is to sell you more

Scientists have found that it is much more difficult to give up anything when you are offered it directly. 85% of people order more than they want, when restaurant employees offer to take something else to order. In restaurants, the staff never uses the "no" particle when communicating at the checkout, so the most common wording that they use is: "Will you try?", "Will you?" Or "Take?".

6. Average Cola - this is a big stake

An easy way to improve the sale of beverages is to increase the volume of each serving and expand their entire line, adding "extra large" and "extra" portions. People subconsciously stop the choice on the average of the offered, but thanks to this trick the average turns out to be great. In addition, if you do not specify the size of the portion, the cashier will break the more expensive positions by default, for example, large potatoes and large coffee.

7. Meat from fire is an illusion

Footprints from the grill on meat cutlets make burgers, undoubtedly, even more attractive. Only they do not have anything in common with a real grill: they are created at the factory before freezing. Well, the added flavorings of smoke perfectly complete the illusion of meat directly from the fire.

8. Salads are not so harmless

Секретные фишки фастфудов

In the menu of many fast food restaurants in recent years there have been salads as a variant of healthy food. But because of their composition, they are the same or even more caloric than standard dishes. In addition, lettuce leaves are sometimes treated with propylene glycol (food additive E1520) to prevent their wilting. This additive is recognized as safe, but about 100% naturalness of such products is no longer the case. In addition, if the authenticity of meat and vegetables in general can not be doubted, then the composition of sauces can only be guessed - most employees do not know about it.

9. Coffee that does not cheer you up

Секретные фишки фастфудов

A number of establishments with a low price tag offer coffee in foam, not paper glasses. The problem is that the foam contains styrene, a chemical component that can be released by interaction with a hot liquid. It affects the human nervous system and can cause depression and loss of concentration. So it is worth giving preference to coffee in paper cups.

10. Eggs in fast food are not just eggs

Секретные фишки фастфудов

Eggs, which are offered as breakfast or as a supplement to the main dishes in the fast food field, contain eggs and a "premium egg mixture", which includes glycerine, dimethylpolysiloxane (silicone form) and food additive E552 (calcium silicate). It's best to spend a minute and make eggs at home.

11. Cola is different from the one in the bottle

Секретные фишки фастфудов

Many have noticed that carbonated drinks in the same McDonald's for some reason tastes better than those that we buy bottled. In fact, they have almost the same taste. But its role can be played by the fact that branded concentrates are mixed with water and are carbonated directly in the restaurant, which makes them more "fresh."

12. Do not take food take-away.

If you are determined to dine with French fries or a hamburger, do not take a take-out order. Most dishes in fast food chains have a very short life. For example, french fries remain fresh for only 5 minutes, and then begins to lose their taste. Burger in the hot state "lives" a little longer, but to reach the house still does not have time.
