How Much Salt is in a McDonald’s Premium McWrap?

McDonald’s has been getting a lot of advertising mileage out of its new Premium McWraps, touting them as healthy offerings. But how healthy are they if you’re on a restricted diet, specifically if you’re on a no-salt diet as I am?McWrap_F-600x450

Unfortunately, not very, according to nutrition information on the McDonald’s website. A premium chicken McWrap with grilled chicken and ranch sauce has 1,130 mgs of sodium. I’m not supposed to have more than about 1,200 mgs a day, so one of these new McWraps would be a day’s salt for me. That’s unacceptable, and should be for you too if you’re watching your salt. Order it without the cheese, and you’re still at 1,030 mgs, still way too high. Leave off the ranch sauce and you’re down to 930 mgs, still more than half a day’s sodium.

Please McDonald’s, I want to be able to eat at your places again, you’re everywhere, no place is more convenient for a quick lunch. But all I can order these days is a side salad without any dressing. I carry my own oil and vinegar to avoid your high-sodium dressings. Please get the salt out.

  1. I absolutely agree.

    I no longer eat McDonald’s food.

    If they took the sodium out of the McWraps (or offered a low sodium version), I’d be a frequent customer.

    As it is, McDonald’s is attempting to lure health-conscious people into eating a very unhealthy meal. Despicable.
