Probably, each of us has ever eaten in fast food. Fast food restaurants have flooded the market and today it is much harder to eat
in "catering" soup than a Burger. Is fast food really tastier than regular food? And why for many people fast food seems incredibly tasty?
The origin of fast food
These cakes became the first fast food in the world. Today they can be found in many countries, for example, in Spain (quesadilla)
If you think that fast food appeared only in the twentieth century, it is completely wrong. People have always sought to make their lives easier, so the first type of fast food originated in Ancient Rome.
There on squares, merchants were selling flat cakes with cheese, vegetables and fried meat. The cake itself was used instead of plates and rags – hands were not dirty, it was not necessary to look for where to wash them. Eat and go.
Much later there were hot dogs, where the bun was used to ensure that people do not burn your fingers on a hot sausage. Well, the emergence of McDonald's, chicken from Colonel Sanders (KFC) and similar institutions have revolutionized and furor.
Drinks - an essential element of fast food
No fast food is complete without drinks. Often they can be almost more expensive than hamburgers, fries, etc.
Before moving on to burgers and sandwiches, let us recall another integral element of any chain of fast-food restaurants. Soda water has always brightened up and continues to help in fast food intake.
As you know, one of the first manufacturers is Coca-Cola. The name is because earlier soda was made using coca leaves (cocaine is extracted from them). It was this element that made people sit down on it, strive to quench their thirst and feel the incredible taste again.
Now coca replaced with sugar. It contains glucose, which helps to satisfy hunger and provide the body with fast, light energy.
Do not forget about the caffeine contained in Coca-Cola, one of the most common stimulants. It is no wonder that our brain loves Coca-Cola so much: light energy and caffeine will “plant” anyone!
You can try to cook this kind of food yourself, but almost one hundred percent say that it is as tasty as fast food will not work. Each company, of course, has its own secret recipes. And one of them is monosodium glutamate and other flavor enhancers.
This is probably the main ingredient that allows you to make hamburger meat so juicy, soft, fragrant and appetizing. In another case, the result of cooking rather disappoint.
Plus, artificial TRANS fats are widely used, which allow to increase the shelf life of meat and make it cheaper. But in fact, the secrets of delicious hamburgers of any large fast-food chain, much more, but we are unlikely to know them ever.
These chips are made at home. But the taste they will be completely different than the purchased
Another kind of fast food, which is easy to sit down people. What can be harmful in slices of fried potatoes, especially if it is tasty prepared? It would seem that nothing. But what people cook at home and buy in the store will be very different from each other.
Here, of course, can also take place a proprietary recipe or something similar. But the main reason for the addiction is potato starch.
This is the type of fast carbohydrates from which our body can produce glucose. However, in order to start this process, it is necessary that before this a directly proportional amount of insulin is developed.
But after eating a few packs of chips, there is more insulin left in the body than insulin. To direct it in the right direction, the person again reaches for the chips. It is addictive, and the product seems so delicious to us.
Therefore, it is better to deny yourself once in this dubious pleasure. After all, fast food is food that consists of “fast” carbohydrates that are easily broken down and digested by the body. But they also leave quickly, causing a feeling of hunger, although you only seem to have eaten!
