Project Details


Fastfood from restaurants have been investigated and described in a food survey. 250 samples of 45 different fastfood dishes have been sampled and analysed for nitrogen, fat, fatty acids, dry matter, ash, dietary fiber, thiamin, riboflavin, sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron, copper, zinc, manganese, phosphorus and chloride.

All samples are taken from street- and to-go-restaurants in metropols, major cities, villages, kiosks and highway service stations to represent demografic distributions.

Samples for registration og ingredients are treated separately from analytical samples. Analytical samples are taken directly to sample pretreatment in the lab.
