Fast food

Fast food is food which is prepared and served quickly at outlets called fast-food restaurants.

It is a multi-billion dollar industry which continues to grow rapidly in many countries.

The cooking method used for certain items is partly responsible for those items' higher caloric and saturated fat contents.
