Burger King is embracing a health-first initiative and introducing new french fries that have 40 percent less fat and 30 percent less calories. The crinkle-cut "Satisfries" were introduced today, packing just 270 calories compared to the 350 that the normal fries contain.
Aside from fewer calories and more money (they cost $1.89; regular fries cost $1.59), the method of cooking these new fries are the difference. Per the New York Times:
The difference, Burger King says, is that it adjusts the proportions of different ingredients for the batter to block out more oil. The company declined to be more specific. Another difference, the crinkle-cut shape, is in part so workers will be able to easily distinguish them from the regular fries when they're deep frying them together.
