Fast food and Junk food definition:
Is fast food is a junk food. Both fast and JF are defined in many ways in various dictionaries and culinary forums. Although slightly different, the essence of these numerous definitions boils down to:
- Fast food is a type of food you get from a restaurant designed to deliver the order in the quickest possible way.
- Junk food is food with extremely low nutritional value, sometimes called rich in ‘empty calories’.
These definitions make it perfectly clear that fast food can be both healthy and unhealthy. Junk food, on the other hand, is decidedly not good for you. Please bear in mind that some fast food places can serve junk food. The ‘junk’ component of the term refers to the nutritional value of a product. For example, fries (and almost anything deep-fried and processed) can be categorized as junk food. The amount of saturated fats in these products significantly outweighs the amount of essential nutrients. Therefore, they become ‘empty’ from the nutritional point of view.
