  • 1. •History•Fast food•Cuisine•Variants•The proper feeding
  • 2.  fast food restaurants were born in America in the 1980s. The Italian translation of"fast food" is food. In fact, these businesses offer a meal that you can consumequickly, saving time and money, as it requires our modern society. Taking intoconsideration these aspects of fast food would seem a good idea to eat their mealsin these places, but referring to from safe sources, you can see how this power isnot entirely correct. Actually the movie Super Size me reports, are proof that thepower offered by the fast food is potentially dangerous if followed regularly.
  • 3.  The most common nutritional criticism to the classic "hamburger bun" layemphasis on this problem consumed too much fatty food, a few vegetables, littlefruit and a few milk products. Today, however, this kind of entertainment isevolving, as it offers many different proposals, including the consumption of fruitsand vegetables. In the Italian tradition includes other proposals of Fast Food, suchas pizza, which can be consumed without too much loss of time and lends itself toendless variations of taste. Today you can find on the Italian market as well assome quick dishes inspired by traditional cuisine, as an alternative to the classicBurger with fries and sauces.
  • 4.  Modern commercial fast food is often highly processed and prepared in an industrialfashion, i.e., on a large scale with standard ingredients and standardized cooking andproduction methods. It is usually rapidly served in cartons or bags or in a plasticwrapping, in a fashion which minimizes cost. In most fast food operations, menu itemsare generally made from processed ingredients prepared at a central supply facility andthen shipped to individual outlets where they are reheated, cooked (usually bymicrowave or deep frying) or assembled in a short amount of time. This process ensuresa consistent level of product quality, and is key to being able to deliver the order quicklyto the customer and eliminate labor and equipment costs in the individual stores. Because of commercial emphasis on speed, uniformity and low cost, fast food productsare often made with ingredients formulated to achieve a certain flavor or consistency andto preserve freshness.
  • 5.  Although fast food often brings to mind[citation needed] traditional American fast food such ashamburgers and fries, there are many other forms of fast food that enjoy widespread popularity in theWest. Chinese takeaways/takeout restaurants are particularly popular[where?]. They normally offer a widevariety of Asian food (not always Chinese), which has normally been fried. Most options are someform of noodles, rice, or meat. In some cases, the food is presented as a smörgåsbord, sometimes selfservice. The customer chooses the size of the container they wish to buy, and then is free to fill it withtheir choice of food. It is common to combine several options in one container, and some outletscharge by weight rather than by item. Many of these restaurants offer free delivery for purchases overa minimum amount. Many types of sushi ready to eat A francesinha fastfood restaurant in Póvoa de Varzim, Portugal. A fast-food kiosk in Yambol, Bulgaria Sushi has seen rapidly rising popularity in recent times[where?]. A form of fast food created in Japan(where bentō is the Japanese equivalent of fast food), sushi is normally cold sticky rice flavored with asweet rice vinegar and served with some topping (often fish), or, as in the most popular kind in theWest, rolled in nori (dried laver) with filling. The filling often includes fish, chicken or cucumber. Pizza is a common fast food category in the United States, with chains such as Papa Johns, DominosPizza, Sbarro and Pizza Hut. Menus are more limited and standardized than in traditionalpizzerias, and pizza delivery is offered.
  • 6.  Kebab houses are a form of fast food restaurant from the Middle East, especially Turkey and Lebanon.Meat is shaven from a rotisserie, and is served on a warmed flatbread with salad and a choice of sauceand dressing. These doner kebabs or shawarmas are distinct from shish kebabs served on sticks. Kebabshops are also found throughout the world, especially Europe, New Zealand and Australia but theygenerally are less common in the US. Lamb shish kebab Fish and chip shops are a form of fast food popular in the United Kingdom, Australia and NewZealand. Fish is battered and then deep fried. The Dutch have their own types of fast food. A Dutch fast food meal often consists of a portion offrench fries (called friet or patat) with a sauce and a meat product. The most common sauce toaccompany french fries is fritessaus. It is a sweet, vinegary and low fat mayonnaise substitute, that theDutch nevertheless still call "mayonnaise". When ordering it is very often abbreviated to met (literally"with"). Other popular sauces are ketchup or spiced ketchup ("curry"), Indonesian style peanut sauce("satésaus" or "pindasaus") or piccalilli. Sometimes the fries are served with combinations ofsauces, most famously speciaal (special): mayonnaise, with (spiced) ketchup and chopped onions; andoorlog (literally "war"): mayonnaise and peanut sauce (sometimes also with ketchup and choppedonions). The meat product is usually a deep fried snack; this includes the frikandel (a deep friedskinless minced meat sausage), and the kroket (deep fried meat ragout covered in breadcrumbs). In Portugal, there are some varieties of local fast-food and restaurants specialized in this type of localcuisine. Some of the most popular foods include frango assado (Piri-piri grilled chicken previouslymarinated), francesinha, francesinha poveira, espetada (turkey or pork meat on two sticks) and bifanas(pork cutlets in a specific sauce served as a sandwich). This type of food is also often served withfrench fries (called batatas fritas), some international chains started appearing specialized in some ofthe typical Portuguese fast food such as Nandos. A fixture of East Asian cities is the noodle shop. Flatbread and falafel are today ubiquitous in theMiddle East. Popular Indian fast food dishes include vada pav, panipuri and dahi vada. In the French-speaking nations of West Africa, roadside stands in and around the larger cities continue to sell—asthey have done for generations—a range of ready-to-eat, char-grilled meat sticks known locally asbrochettes (not to be confused with the bread snack of the same name found in Europe).
  • 7.  to set proper nutrition you should consider other factors, first and foremost the variety: onlyeating many different foods can indeed ensure the introduction of all the nutrients we need. Youshould eat at least once a week, eggs, fish, legumes and Red offal. The eggs are in fact proteinswith high biological value and lecithin. The internal organs are rich in vitamins and minerals.Fish, particularly oily fish, are precious foods for the content of unsaturated fatty acids. Legumesprovide good quality proteins limited cost and a high quantity of fiber, useful for bowelregularity. Even whole grains, fruits and vegetables provide a good supply of fiber. Between the fats, that ideal is the extra virgin olive oil, since it is the most similar to humanstorage lipids. Moderate amounts of animal fats (butter, lard) and try to emphasize seasonings ofvegetable origin (with the exception of margarine, use as little as possible). Sweet sugars must be taken sparingly, without exceeding the 10-12% of total caloric intake. Thebest time to introduce these foods is in the morning, after an overnight fast because the bodyneeds energy immediately available. The salt should be used in moderation and may not even be added, because that content in food isalready sufficient for the body; to purchase choose always to iodized salt to prevent iodinedeficiency. It is however better to season foods with herbs, providing flavor and stimulatedigestion. A moderate consumption of alcohol with meals (for example, a glass of wine) is acceptable as longas there is no contraindications such as hypertension, pregnancy and lactation, while it should beremembered that excessive intake can cause multiple physiological damage. Children under theage of 16 years must not drink alcohol. Reduced the amount of food ingested: according to recent data, more than a third of Italians areobese or overweight, with adverse effects on health.
