MorningStar Veggie Burger

BK-veggie burger

The MorningStar Veggie Burger without Mayo has several things working in its favor. The first is a high protein content. It also is low in cholesterol. At 5 mg the MorningStar Veggie burger beats out every beef-based sandwich. The drawback of this item is its moderate amount of sodium, 990mg, even when you choose the mayonnaise-free option. Keep in mind the amount of sodium in this item and your personal sodium intake needs.
