It seems that McDonalds has finally decided to come forward and admit what they famous burgers are actually made of. There have been a lot of speculations about what they put in their burgers, a lot of rumors have started to circle around and many people don’t know what to trust. All of this pressure seems to have finally yielded results and McDonalds decided to reveal the recipe they use to make the famous burgers and trust us it’s nothing as delicious as you think.
As a response to the mounting criticism, McDonalds decided to launch a PR campaign called “Our Food. Your Questions” and give customers an unprecedented look at exactly how their food is made. And even though they adamantly deny they use “pink slime” in their burgers, they have admitted to using a chemical additive azodicarbonamide in their buns. Do you know what azodicarbonamide is used for? It’s commonly used in the manufacturing of yoga mats! Can you believe it?
In addition, they claim that using this type of rubber in their food is actually safe for consumption:
“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.”
Moreover, they admit to using dimethylpolysiloxane as an anti-foaming agent in their McNugget frying oil. However, they don’t want to hear a word about their patties since they are 100% beef, no added chemicals whatsoever. After reading about the rest who would believe them?
