READING THE CHARTS

CALCULATION

Nutritional data is expressed through radar charts, with the inner circle representing half of the recommended daily intake for the given indicator, and the outer circle representing 100% of recommended daily intake. The menu item’s nutritional values are expressed by edges of a polygon being plotted on the spoke for the corresponding indicator; each spoke represents a different nutritional indicator.

Using nutritional data available for downloading on Wendy’s, McDonald’s and Burger King’s websites, individual nutritional indicators were compared to their respective recommended dailt intake values. In turn, an index was created for all values, being a percentage of each value compared to the recommended daily intake value.
