British Takeaways Have Shocking Levels Of Fat, Salt, Sugar And Colourings

Shocking, just shocking.
A Local Government Group study which analyzed two takeaways, found "shocking" levels of sugar, salt, fat and colourings, as well as potentially deadly nuts and bogus meat. A single portion of chicken tikka masala and pilau rice was found to have 116% of an average person's GDA (guideline daily amount) of saturated fat and 92% of salt.

(UK - Takeaways. USA - Takeouts)

Chinese takeaway, sweet and sour chicken with fried rice had 16 teaspoons of sugar, or 75% GDA, and 119% GDA of salt.

This study examined food contents from 223 takeaways throughout England and Wales.

Scientists reported cases of colouring levels which had exceeded the legal limit, or inclusion of colourings that the FSA (Food Standards Agency) had previously asked caterers to voluntarily ban because of their detrimental effects of children.

If these meals were pre-packaged, they would be legally required to have health warnings, advising purchasers of their colouring content.
