Pink Slime: McDonald’s wants you to believe that every time you bite their McNuggets, you are eating chicken. But, that is far from the truth because it is a mixture of bones and chicken carcass, chicken parts that you won’t normally eat. Other ingredients included in the mixture popularly known as pink slime includes ammonia to kill bacteria and small amounts of petroleum.
Silly Putty plastic: Dimethylpolysiloxane is a form of silicone used in the stretchy toy, but it also keeps fryer oil from foaming and as such, you’ll find it in McDonald’s Filet-O-Fish and fries … or almost anything deep-fried in a fast food restaurant.
Wood (cellulose). Processed wood pulp, known as cellulose, is used in everything. Food processors use it to thicken and stabilize foods, replace fat and boost fiber content
Petroleum-derived preservatives (TBHQ). Tertiary butylhydroquinone (TBHQ) is made from compounds derived from petroleum and finds a home in processed food. McDonald’s, for example, uses it in 18 products ranging from its Fruit and Walnut Salad to Griddle Cakes to McNuggets.
Soil fertilizer (ammonium sulfate)
Ammonium sulfate is sold by chemical companies to food manufacturers as “yeast food for bread,” and many fast-food companies list the ingredient in their bakery products.
40 years ago, only around $6 billion was spent on fast food. Today that number is more like $200 billion. Not only is the fast food industry serving us disgusting food, they are making tons of money doing it.
