Nobody has ever pretended that McDonald’s was good for you, but once you read this you might just boycott it all together.
We are all guilty of grabbing a quick meal from McDonald’s from time to time, and then not feeling so great about it after. We all know that McDonald’s is not a healthy food option, but most people have no idea why, except for the deep frying and excessive amounts of salt.
Let’s get behind the scenes, into the world of hidden ingredients, and discover why we should ditch our McDonald’s habits all together!
Do you know what azodicarbonamide is used for? It is most commonly used in the manufacturing of yoga mats. Mmmmm that sounds delicious…
They actually claim that using this chemical in their food is completely 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.”
An anti-foaming agent in their McNugget frying oil. Does that really sound like a chemical you want to be consuming? Dimethylpolysiloxane is a substance commonly found in ‘cosmetic and hygiene products like nail polish, conditioners, make-up, contact lens solutions, sunscreens, deodorants, and shampoo. And to add to the disgust this chemical contains formaldehyde.
