So, we all know Taco Bell isn’t known for its health food, but just what exactly is in that waffle burrito concoction? Well, it took quite a lot of digging, but below is what I could find from their very own website. The waffle ingredients were nowhere to be found, which is even scarier.
Ingredients in Taco Bell “food”, if you can call it that, that are scientifically prove to be dangerous/harmful:
Whole Eggs, Butter Flavor (Liquid And Hydrogenated Soybean Oil, Salt, Soy Lecithin, Natural And Artificial Flavor, Beta Carotene (Color), TBHQ And Citric Acid Added To Protect Flavor, Dimethylpolysiloxane, An Anti-foaming Agent Added). Contains Less Than 1% Of The Following: Salt, Citric Acid, Pepper, Xanthan Gum, Guar Gum.
Pork, Seasoning (Salt, Corn Syrup Solids, Spices, Dextrose, Caramel Color, Autolyzed Yeast Extract, Natural Flavor, And Less Than 2% Soybean Oil And Silicon Dioxide Added As Processing Aids), And Water.
Corn Syrup, Sugar, Water, Natural And Artificial Flavors, Propylene Glycol, Potassium Sorbate And Sodium Benzoate (Preservatives), Salt, Cellulose Gum, Sodium Hexametaphosphate, Caramel Color.
Cultured Pasteurized Milk, Salt, Enzymes, Annatto (Color), Anti-Caking Agent.
Fully Cooked Bacon Topping (Smoke Flavor Added). Cured With: Water, Salt, Sodium Phosphates, Sodium Erythorbate, Sodium Nitrite, Smoke Flavoring. May Contain: Sugar, Brown Sugar, Dextrose, Sodium Ascorbate, Flavoring.
In conclusion – it’s a bunch of salt, sugar, fat, artificial ingredients, preservatives, and cancer-causing chemicals. Big surprise! Btw, ‘enzymes’ means the literal enzymes from the cow’s stomach, and ‘flavoring’ can mean MSG, so you’ll stay addicted to fast food. Ewwww, no thanks.
So, if you don’t want to end up in a hospital bed, you may want to refrain from eating foods like this, in my opinion. Am I being dramatic? Perhaps. But it never hurts to be informed consumers! And if you want to make a difference, or see healthier options on menus – don’t eat so much fast food! Again, this is all my opinion as a concerned consumer.
