Great news! British Pie Week (6th to 12th March) is nearly upon us once again – providing you with the perfect excuse to indulge in your favourite fast food – delicious Arments pie and mash!
And there’s even better news. After subjecting our pie, mash and liquor to expert nutritional analysis we can reveal that a typical Arments meal has no processed meats, fewer calories, less sugar and a lower fat content than many other takeaways.
Here’s how our traditional handmade pie, mash and liquor measures up nutrition-wise with other popular fast food options.
A standard Arment’s pie, mash and liquor meal contains just *581 calories – that’s around a quarter of your recommended daily intake. Compare this with a McDonald’s Big Tasty with Bacon burger meal, which has 1187 calories or a KFC Supercharger burger meal with fries at 980 calories. Looks like pie and mash is the clear winner for people watching their waistlines.
It might also pay to swap your Indian takeaway for tasty pie and mash. By opting for an Indian starter, main and rice you’re likely to blow your entire daily calorie budget, with up to 2000 calories at stake. And next time you order a kebab – keep in mind it’s likely to cost you anywhere from 1000 to 2000 calories.
The recommended daily fat intake is around 70 g per day. So, a standard pie, mash and liquor dinner at Arments with *20.6 g of fat keeps you well within your limit. The McDonald’s Big Tasty with Bacon meal on the other hand contains a whopping 50 g of fat! while the KFC Supercharger burger meal comes in at 42 g of fat. An average kebab could contain as much as 62 g of fat– close to the total recommended fat intake for an average adult in just one meal.
The World Health Organisation advises that added sugar should be reduced to just 5% of our daily intake – that’s around 25 g. At just *1.7 g per meal, Arments pie, mash and liquor meal has a very low sugar content. This is in stark contrast with the surprisingly high sugar content in many fast foods.
For example, while a Subway sandwich may look like a healthy option, if you opt for sweet onion sauce on your 6-inch turkey sub (9-grain wheat and lettuce) you’ll be consuming 14 g of sugar. Pizza is another clear culprit on when it comes to sugar content – a Medium Dominos Barbeque Stuffed Crust – (Delight UK) has 5.5 g of sugar in just one slice. Polish off the whole pizza and you’ve just consumed around 33 g of sugar!
Compared with other fast foods, Arments pie and mash is tastier and more nutritious.
