RFF #21 – The amount of salt in a McDonald’s BigMac varies depending on the country you’re in

It’s kind of interesting to think that the BigMac is consumed across the globe. Nevertheless, the BigMac you get in Canada, Greece or the UK isn’t exactly the same. As a matter of fact, when it comes to salt, there can be big differences. I took a look at the salt level in a variety of BigMacs from around the world, the countries I chose were completely random (as the name of this blog suggests). Here’s a comparison of the salt level in various countries:




Greece -2.3g

United Kingdom-2.1g


I didn’t check every country, but it’s quite interesting to note that of the countries I chose, Canada ranks highest.
