Less fatty 'Satisfries' on Burger King menus in US
WASHINGTON (AFP) - Fast food giant Burger King introduced a lower-fat, fewer-calorie French fry to US patrons on Tuesday, allowing customers to order a side of "Satisfries" with their meal.
The new fry, which is being sold alongside the old classic, has one-third the fat and 20 per cent fewer calories.
And a small-size order contains 270 calories compared to 340 calories in the original.
According to the company, the secret behind the Satisfry is a reduction in the potato's oil absorption while still keeping the product "crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside."
