McDonald`s at least admits what`s in their burgers. Even though rumors about the quality of these burgers are circulating for a very long time now, there was not any real piece of evidence. People have been concerned about the pink slime to the mechanically separated meat, and McDonald`s finally admits what their food is actually made of.
Due to the mounting skepticism, McDonald`s decided to start off a PR campaign under the name of “Our Food. Your Questions.” The purpose of this campaign is to let the customers look at the production of this food. The fast food chain denies that their burgers contain “pink slime”, but there are other ingredients that you should be concerned about. For instance, McDonald`s admits that their buns contain azodicarbonamide, a chemical additive which is also used in yoga mats.
However, the company claims that adding rubber to the food is not dangerous but completely safe instead.
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.”
In addition to this, McDonald`s admits that their food contains dimethylpolysiloxane as well, an anti-foaming agent found in their frying oil. However, their patties are “100% beef”. According to their chief brand manager, the customers shouldn’t judge the company before they get to know with them.
The consumption of this kind of food negatively affects the overall health and anyone who has watched “Super-Size Me” is aware of this. Therefore, make sure you stay away from McDonalds and its “safe” products, and consume more whole foods instead.
