Are Canadian restaurants allowed to make health claims?


Somehow I doubt it, but I'm not sure.

Regardless of whether it's legal or not, check out Thai Express' new promotion,

"Feed your Brain

Beef Stir Fry with Eggplant and Vegetables on Rice with a 16oz beverage

Yup, what could be better for you than fried red meat over white rice with a sugared soda chaser?

I wish there were something we could put in the drinking water that would protect the general public from consuming junk food in response to ridiculous over-simplifications and extrapolations of basic science research.

  1. It's also impossible to get nutrional information out of Thai Express. if you do some poking around people have been asking as far back as 2008 and Thai Express just responds, 'We're working on it'.

    At work when we make the decision to eat there we pair up and split an entrée and always leave feeling stuffed, their portions are enormous.

  2. I've emailed Thai express twice and didn't even get a response. I won't eat there again until I know the nutritional information. Makes you wonder what they're hiding.
