McDonalds is the most famous fast food company in the world, many people are literally addicted to the taste of McDonald meals. If you are one of them, you will surely avoid eating at McDonald’s after reading these horrific facts. It’s a known fact that in order to give the flavor and taste to their meals, fast food restaurants use different chemicals. But did you ever think that your favorite burger would have crushed beetles, soil fertilizer or plastic in it? Well we are sorry to inform you that you might just be eating these disgusting additives every time you decide to hit the drive-thru.
If you eat fast food regularly then chances are, you have been regularly consuming ammonium sulfate which is a soil fertilizer. Fast food companies openly list “yeast food for bread” in their ingredients which actually is ammonium sulfate bought from chemical companies.
Preservatives derived from Petroleum:
Most of the processed food contains Tertiary butyl hydroquinone (TBHQ) which is a compound made from petroleum. And guess what McDonald’s has about 18 items including your favorite MC-Nuggets in which it is used.
In order to stabilize the foods, and boost fiber content in them, the food processors use wood pulp which is known as cellulose.
Silly Putty – (Plastic):
In order to stop the fryer oil from foaming, fast food restaurants use Dimethylpolysiloxane which is a form of silicone. It is commonly used in stretchy toys. So next time you order Fillet-O-Fish or anything deep fried, chances are you will be consuming some plastic.
The Baked Hot Apple Pie of McDonald’s contains an ingredient derived from duck feathers.
When you eat those MC-Nuggets do you really think that you are eating some healthy chicken? MC-Nuggets actually are a mixture of carcass of chicken and its bones. A famous ingredient of MC-Nuggets is Pink Slime. It has ammonia and small amounts of petroleum as well.
The $200 billion fast food industry wants to keep feeding you these disgusting chemicals and preservatives. Now it’s up to you to lose your money on unhealthy food or eat fresh and healthy food which will also save you money.
