Alright in the uk Mcdonalds have introduced a new product for 99pence, its nutrient breakdown is;

CHICKEN SALSA FLATBREAD

Cals480.0
Protein 27.3
Carbs57.6
Sugars9.6
Fat15.5
of which saturates1.7
Fibre 6.4

to me that sounds pretty impressive, other than the sugars it has potential for a very cheap convenient MRP, what do you reckon?

Well, over here you can get a fairly healthy Mcgrilled chicken sandwich for $1.00 :D

It's all about the quality though. I mean were talking about McDonalds here, they are looking to make profits, not make people healthy. I would be more concerned with the quality of ingredients used, especially the chicken. But if I were eating McDonalds I would most definately go for something like that over anything else.

If that bread is whole grain which seems possible seeing the fibre content I would say it's a pretty decent meal. Otherwise forget it, if thats a processed white tortilla then your consuming 51 grams of utter crap in the carb department.

I would also argue that you never really know what you are getting from a place like McDonalds. They might throw an extra tablespoon of special sauce which could add another 100 cals or so to the sandwich. Although if it came down to it that does seem like a good option if you were in a pinch.

I think there are much healthier options. Most of the calories probably come from McDonald's flatbread which has the following ingredients:

Enriched wheat flour, water, vegetable shortening, dextrose, corn starch, mono-diglycerides, ...

I think the only good thing in the flatbread is the water. The sauces (which are seperate from the flatbread and not listed above) are also undesireable. In my opinion there is too much empty calories, sugar, unhealthy fat, salt, and unnatural additives. I think you would be much better off eating a chicken sandwich with whole wheat bread and few additives. This might be difficult to find in a fast food restaurant.
