This paper will compare two restaurants ingredients and nutritional information in detail for similar food items prepared by each restaurant. The two that I have chosen will be Jimmy Johns BLT sub and Subways BLT sub. Well we do not eat out a lot so I have found my information on the internet at Jimmy johns.com and subway.com. They both have their nutritional information broken down to each sub. You then can add or remove items from the sub.
The sub from subway would have 6 pieces of bacon, 3 tomatoes, lettuce, and mayo on a 6inch white sub bun. The calories on that would be 320 and calories from fat are 80. The total fat is 9.4g and in that would be saturated fat 4g and Tran’s fat 0g. The cholesterol is 20 mg, sodium 680mg, and protein 15g. The carbohydrates are 43g; from the carbohydrates you will have dietary fiber 5g and sugar 6g.
The sub from Jimmy Johns would have 6 pieces of bacon, 3 tomatoes, lettuce, and mayo on an 8inch French bread sub. The calories on that would be 634.3. The total fat is 35.17g and in that would be saturated fat 9g and Tran’s fat they did not list in their nutritional facts. The cholesterol is 36.6 mg, sodium 1329.28mg, and protein 25.37g. The carbohydrates are 48.57g; from the carbohydrates you will have dietary fiber .89g and sugar they did not list.
I will choose Subway over Jimmy Johns. I have done some math looking into which sub would be better and it would be Subway. For a 1 inch part of subways sub calories would be 53.33 compared to Jimmy Johns which is 79.29 per inch. The total fat in Subways is 1.57g per inch and Jimmy Johns is 1.13 per inch. Subway did show that they had 0g of Tran’s fat but Jimmy Johns did not show that. Does that mean they do not have any Tran’s fat in the sub?
Tran’s fats are extremely harmful to health, causing a long list of health problems including heart disease, obesity, diabetes, various types of cancer, and so on. Even very tiny amounts are harmful so you should avoid them as...
