You may have heard or seen many horror stories about the fast food industry, but now it’s time for the truth!
McDonalds have tried to cover up many things over the year, but finally we have the facts and be warned they will SHOCK you.
(Article continues below)
Did you know that there is high probability that you’re eating crushed beetles, or duck feather with your fast food burger.
Here’s the truth, and it aint pretty…
1. Ammonium Sulfate
This is a nasty additive that is used to mass-produce bread. It is also used as a soil fertilizer and bug killer.
Nothing helps mass-produce bread like ammonium sulfate.
2. Silicone Oil
Did you know your beloved Chicken McNuggets are full of a silicone oil called dimethylpolysiloxane that is used for making contact lenses and other medical items.
Chain fast food restaurants use Cysteine-L, an amino acid synthesized from human hair or duck feathers, to flavor the meat.
This is an additive that can be found in a staggering 18 McDonald’s menu items. It has the potential to be lethal, but hey, not to worry cause the FDA say’s it’s ‘SAFE’.
5. Propylene Glycol
This is a chemical compound used in anti-freeze, e-cigs, and you guessed it, fast food!
6. Prescription Drugs
If you thought the pink slime scandal was bad prepare to be amazed. Anti-depressants as well as other prescription drugs are added to chicken feed.
You will find this in almost any fast food item, and also:
§ Silly putty
§ Contact lenses
§ Heat resistant tiles
8. Carminic Acid
This kind of acid is synthesised by Cochineal beetles and used to dye foods.
This is in almost every fast food menu item and is produced from pulp.
10. Silicone Dioxide
This is more commonly known in industrial sand, and is used to keep things from clumping together like Wendy’s chili.
If this article hasn’t put you off fast food restaurants for life, then nothing will! Have fun eating beetle juice and industrial sand.
However, if this has inspired you to cook at home more, why not start growing your own organic produce. It’s so easy, all it takes is a quick google search, start your own project today!
