Perfect example of how the Academy of Nutrition’s annual Food & Nutrition Conference and Expo is co-opted by Big Food.
Yes, an Egg McMuffin contains 300 calories. But, what about the quality and composition of those 300 calories? For starters, Egg McMuffins are cooked in partially hydrogenated oils.
And what about the fact that this Egg McMuffin packs in 780 milligrams of sodium? Describing it as “wholesome” is just as ludicrous as marketing it at a nutrition conference.
