McDonalds Reveals Secret French Fry Formula

As part of its new “Transparency” campaign, McDonalds has revealed the process and ingredients involved in making their highly-addictive french fries.  

One might be surprised to discover that there are 19 different ingredients in the golden, crispy and delicious carb sticks. 

The ingredients are as follows:

Potatoes
Canola oil
Soybean oil
Hydrogenated soybean oil
Natural beef flavour
Hydrolyzed wheat
Hydrolyzed milk
Citric acid
Dimethylpolysiloxane
Dextrose
Sodium acid pyrophosphate
Salt
Canola oil
Corn oil
Soybean oil
Hydrogenated soybean oil
TBHQ
Citric acid
Dimethylpolysiloxane

According to Yahoo News, even though a lot of those “chemical-sounding” ingredients sound scary, there’s really only one item that might raise any health questions:  

“For the consumers, they see this long list of more than 10 ingredients and many of them look like big, long, alien chemicals. However to a nutritionist with expertise in biochemistry, the one that makes me not eat McDonald’s French fries is hydrogenated oil,” Fear said. “Hydrogenated oils are a source of trans fat, which is shown to be negative for human health in many ways.”

Hydrogenated fat is often present in solid shortening, vegetable shortening and some margarine. Liquid canola and vegetables oils do not contain it.
