Kellogg Co. said Tuesday its Morningstar Farms unit will make a vegetarian "burger". This veggie burger will be sold at Burger King restaurants in the United States.
Burger King is the only fast-food restaurant to offer a vegetarian burger nationally in the USA.
Fast-food restaurants have been increasingly offering more health-conscious menu options like salads and fruit.
McDonald's does sells a vegetarian burger in some places, but has not announced plans to expand it nationwide.
Burger King has approximately 7,700 mostly franchised restaurants in the United States.
Burger King also recently launched another new product in the USA, an Enormous Omelette Sandwich.
The sandwich has one sausage patty, two eggs, two American cheese slices and three strips of bacon.
The calories content of this gut buster works out at 730 calories and 47 grams of fat; this is more than a Whopper sandwich, which has 700 calories and 42 grams of fat.
Question, do Americans really need to add calories to their diet?
