The findings will be analysed by a professional nutritionist to inform content for the marketplace’s community of tradespeople.

The successful candidates will be paid to sample 20 of the most popular meals, as previously voted by tradespeople from a range of fast food restaurants across the UK.

The meals that will be sampled include a Greggs Sausage and Omelette Breakfast Baguette, McDonald’s large Big Mac meal and a footlong Subway Meatball Marinara.

As well as taste, the testers will be asked to report to the marketplace how they feel after eating each meal, monitoring how long they stay full, their productivity and energy levels and if the meals cause any negative effects such as ‘food comas’, ‘slumps’ or sugar crashes.

As well as the £1,000 payment for the month-long role, the ‘Takeaway Testers’ will have expenses paid for each meal they consume as part of the experiment.
