After years of speculation and unconfirmed claims, McDonald’s has finally admitted what’s really inside their burgers. You have probably heard the rumors about what the most popular fast food chain puts in their food – from the pink slime to mechanically separated meat, everything we have heard of has been disgusting.
But now, the company has finally admitted what’s inside their food through the “Our Food. Your Questions.” campaign. And while there’s no pink slime in the burgers, there are other questionable ingredients. For example, McDonald’s puts azodicarbonamide in their buns, a chemical additive that can be found in yoga mats! Shockingly, they even say that it is perfectly safe! “There are varied uses for azodicarbonamide, including in some non-food products, such as yoga mats. As a result, some people have suggested our food contains rubber or plastic, or that the ingredient is unsafe. It’s simply not the case. Think of salt: the salt you use in your food at home is a variation of the salt you may use to de-ice your sidewalk. The same is true of ADA — it can be used in different ways,” the company said in a statement.
They also confirmed they use dimethylpolysiloxane in their food, but they claim that their patties are “100% beef”.
If anyone has seen the “Super-Size me” documentary, you know how harmful can junk food be, which is why we suggest sticking to whole foods.
