HealthGrove decided to help make that decision easier. Using nutrition data from ESHA, HealthGrove, part of the Graphiq network, found the least caloric burger at 20 popular chain restaurants. The list is ranked by number of calories for a serving size of one burger, and ties are broken by selecting the burger with fewer grams of fat, followed by milligrams of sodium. The health site didn’t include burgers on the kids’ menu or veggie burgers.
