mcdonalds.gifMcDonald’s plans to offer low-carb versions of its sandwiches and introduce a salad designed to attract customers who prefer more healthful foods. The hamburger giant is also expected to test five or six new products in 2005, including chicken flatbread and deli sandwiches.

bq. McDonald’s will start selling low-carbohydrate sandwiches within two months and a salad with beef and Newman’s Own salsa dressing later this year. Chief Executive James Cantalupo’s focus on improving food quality has led to 11 straight months of sales gains as the chain takes business from No. 2, Burger King Corp., which has announced plans of its own to sell low-carbohydrate Whoppers without the bun.
