Mum keeps McDonald’s burgers and fast food for years to prove it doesn’t go off

A nutritionist who works to tackle obesity has stored McDonald's burgers and other fast food in a plastic container in her home for two years, to prove that the "ultra-processed" food doesn't go off.

A Tik Tok user named Elif has taken pictures and videos of her mum's astonishing experiment and shared the results online, showing the array of fast food in a state barely changed from when it was first served up.

The grub includes McDonald's burgers, fries, sausage rolls, and pizza, as well as sugary sweets and bright, sprinkled doughnuts.

According to Elif, these are all "ultra-processed foods that 80 per cent of the UK consume on a regular basis, reports the Mirror.

Elif notes that these foods all are absolutely fine when eaten "in moderation", but stresses that overeating can and does lead to health issues.

In a TikTok video that has racked up 5.6 million views and counting, Elif – who goes by the username @elifgkandemir – shows her fascinated followers her mum's food cupboard, which she says is "full of foods that never go off."

Although she says some of the foods have been stored there for around "one to two years", the items appear to still be perfectly preserved, and wouldn't look out of place if served up at your favourite fast food restaurant.

In a follow-up video, Elif continued: "Most of this food she's been collecting over the last two years, so most of it is one to two years old.

"80 per cent of the UK are now eating this diet, probably without knowledge of what they are eating, a recent documentary by BBC One entitled 'What Are We Feeding Our Kids' involved Dr Chris van Tulleken eating this kind of diet exclusively for a period of a month with devastating results."

She added: "And though it is true, that you can have anything and everything in moderation, 80 per cent of a person's diet should not be made up of these foods.

"No food is off-limits, my mum is simply trying to encourage people to make better food decisions and live a happier, healthier lifestyle."
