Yum! Brands recognizes that eating habits vary from society to society based on differences in local food preferences and culture. We believe a balanced diet consists of a variety of foods from the recognized food groups such as grains/rice/cereals; vegetables; dairy; meat/beans; fats; fruits; and optional calories from foods like sweets. We will strive to proactively improve the nutrition profile of our high quality food content, while providing great taste. We always will offer a variety of menu options at each of our brands that can be part of a sensibly-balanced diet. We will educate consumers about our product nutrition and support exercise programs. We want consumers to make informed choices about their balanced diet and incorporate exercise into a healthy lifestyle.
In addition to nutritional brochures available in stores, consumers can download a printable version by visiting any of the company's websites.
Most items on Taco Bell’s menu can be ordered at any restaurant or through mobile ordering by specifying it to be prepared "Fresco Style". This lower in calorie and fat option means our freshly prepared pico de gallo is substituted for any mayo-based sauces, guacamole, reduced-fat sour cream and cheese. In fact, our Fresco Menu has 7 signature Fresco items that are each under 350 calories and 10 grams of fat. For example, a Fresco Grilled Steak Soft Taco contains 150 calories and 4.5 total fat grams versus 200 calories and 10 total fat grams in the traditional product.
In 2014, Taco Bell launched Cantina Power Menu™ – a new menu that combines high protein and big flavor. It features burritos and bowls packed with premium proteins and nutrient-rich produce, with more than 20 grams of protein while having 500 calories or less. Because our customers want the classic Taco Bell flavors they love, we also include real cheddar cheese, reduced-fat sour cream, guacamole and pico de gallo.
Taco Bell is the first QSR restaurant to offer American Vegetarian Association (AVA) certified vegetarian food items, like Bean Burrito, Black Bean & Rice Burrito, Cheese Quesadilla, Cheese Roll-Up, and for Breakfast, the A.M. Grilled Taco with Egg and Cheese.
