With Real flavor comes Real responsibility

For years Burger King US has been paving the way to a Real menu with the same flame-grilled flavors you crave. Thousands visit BK restaurants, and to those thousands, we promise to actively evaluate how our food is prepared and strive to eliminate the use of colors, flavors, and preservatives from artificial sources, wherever possible, that compromise the realness of your BK faves.

Banning 120 artificial ingredients

To make change, you gotta be the change. That’s why we banned 120 non-essential artificial ingredients from our food. Because we’re committed to the realness of every crunch, sizzle, and Mmmm that will keep bringing you back for more.
