McDonald’s To Remove ‘Artificial Additives’ From Its Burgers

by | Sep 27, 2018 | Headline News | 23 comments

In a quest to keep up with the ever-changing times and research on healthy eating, McDonald’s has decided to remove all artificial additives from their burgers.  The fast-food company, which hopes to attract more health-conscious consumers to its drive-thrus and counters, announced changes to its most popular hamburgers Wednesday.

According to CNN, McDonalds’ seven classic burgers — the hamburger, cheeseburger, double cheeseburger, McDouble, Quarter Pounder with Cheese, Double Quarter Pounder with Cheese and Big Mac — will no longer include artificial preservatives, flavors or coloring.  This change will apply to all parts of the burger, from the buns to the cheese, to the meat, and sauce.

So far, McDonald’s has specified that it has stripped components like calcium propionate, an artificial preservative, from its buns and eliminated sorbic acid, a preservative, from its American cheese. The iconic Big Mac Special Sauce is also being reformulated to remove any artificial ingredients. McDonald’s said it’s removing the artificial preservatives including potassium sorbate, sodium benzoate, and calcium disodium EDTA without “sacrificing that signature taste.”

“This development demonstrates our commitment to leading with the customer and building a better McDonald’s,” said McDonald’s US president Chris Kempczinski in a statement. It appears that McDonald’s is attempting to keep pace with other fast food restaurants taking the same path. Companies like Taco Bell, Subway and Panera Bread have all recently moved to a more natural food product by removing the artificial ingredients from their menus.

Earlier this year, the company jumped on the “healthy” bandwagon and replaced their frozen beef with fresh beef in its Quarter Pounders and re-engineered the infamous Happy Meal offerings with healthier options, such as milk. This trend shows that some Americans seem to be wising up to the devastating these chemicals and preservatives can do to the human body.

But that pickle on your McDonald’s burger? That will still contain an artificial preservative.

        But for now, the sawdust remanufactured chicken parts, carboard, famaldahyde, gmos and cancerous food coloring stays. I get instant diariah after consuming MacD’s. My body knows.

      Mc D’s used to make $1.00 Hamburger… but
      there was a question as to whether ther was
      real meat in them.

      I like Burger King…. but, is it a better burger?

      What is a burger, anyway? It used to be ground 100%
      beef…. but now it could mean mystery meat ….or ground road kill.
      We assume a lot these days.
      Always question everything this day of greedy, deceitful, manipulative
      and unethical merchants.

      Bravo McDonalds…. for getting rid of the cancer foods.

        You truly are insane, and just more proof the American Holocaust and Chemical Culling is moving along smoothly and just as planned with insane clearly already chemically lobotomized COWARDS like you denying what is happening right in front of your dumbed down face…the Lord truly has blinded you for a reason!!!

        Better FF Burger? There’s plenty of them, In&Out and the Habit to name two… Burger King is imported beef, I had to stop them back in the 90s

      This is good news.

      I commend MacDonalds. Certainly will help their bottom line. They have pretty much come to the point of having to do something or go out of business. I hope the quality of their treatment of cattle improves. And those buns could afford to be toned up.

      Hold the pickle. Did I say that? Hehehe

        Hold the pickle.

      Darn, just when I finally acquired a taste for sawdust, odd hairs, unpronounceable chemicals and the occasional insect. What comes next? A Democrat who suddenly becomes truthful, ethical, decent or moral?

      Anything in my preps beats McDonald’s hands down. I don’t touch it at all.

      So they’ve removed artificial ingredients and what remains is over-processed poorly produced products that barely qualify as foodstuff, e.g. feedlot beef.
      No thanks, I’ll eat my own stuff and cook it the way I like.

      All of the traditional farm animals were bred for mass and vigor and could essentially live on the weeds or other refuse, found outside of a cabin.

      The average land and water use, etc, for lawns could reportedly cover your cereals consumption, as an entire country. I defy you to make one basic bun, successfully, by the recipe, as crappy as their standardized version. Can you grow tall grass, without a sci-fi chemistry experiment.

      Well-tended tomatoes, lettuce, potatoes, pickling cucumbers, grown in temperate climates, under traditional methods, are something altogether different from what is mass produced. They’ve reported apple shortages. Oranges have to be outsourced. These seeds grow with 100% germination, using archaic methods.

      If any corporatists think I am talking about something dirty, mine has never caused me a week and a half of indigestion (like every time I eat yours.) It doesn’t require me to retain more labor than I can support, physically.

      If they remove all the artificial additives, will there be anything left?

      Now if you can keep their workers from spitting in the food you might just get what you think you are getting…

      It’s so easy to make a great hamburger at home and homemade french fries, especially in the Belgian fashion. Why in the world would you eat a McDonald’s hamburger? They are gross.

      People have taken their food, put them glass jars…and they don’t rot and barely mold over! Think about the chemicals that must be in them for this to take place. Why would you put a food that resists breaking down in your digestive tract??? The whole purpose is to break it down!

      People must be dolts or have no cooking ability and have enormous sums of money to waste. I sure don’t.

      If young people ate a hamburger from yesteryear, I doubt they would recognize it compared to this pale shadow at McDonald’s.

        m says, “People must be dolts or have no cooking ability and have enormous sums of money to waste.”

        World Star Hip Hop crowd and yuppies in yuppie mobiles.

        Where money is no object, shame on you all.

        I Like food. Hooray for food. Calories are not what I am shaming.

          Here is a four year old McDonald’s burger without any mildew or mold. It resists any attempt to rot.

          Why would any intelligent person put garbage like that into their stomach???

          George Carlin once famously quipped, “No thanks, I don’t want to be part of your experiment.”

          • Beaumont

            If you gulped it down with lots water, like in those hotdog eating contests, these literal, yoga mat chemicals and Olestra would very possibly exit your body in recognizable condition.

            If you dug a well and used it to water a cow and bbq’d that, in a liberal jurisdiction, you could get put in jail.

      Why did they ever have that junk in their food? What else do they not tell us, like we never knew about this, about their food? This is a good step on their part.

      Thanks for admitting that you sons of bithes have been poisoning the public, and admitting this crime. What makes you think that we are going to eat your shit infested meats, just from a hear say.


      You are what you eat, and if you eat shit, you look like shit and smell like shit.

      Before fast food really existed in rural Kentucky, there were mom and pop diners and the locals genuinely supported these very hospitable places. Regardless of what people may think, everybody was welcome there. These were not just for white folks. It was a warm polite place where the waitress greeted you with a smile and knew your name and addressed you.

      A young teenaged boy could take a pretty girl there and have a delicious but simple and inexpensive meal. I cannot recall any misbehaved children in that kind of diner.

      Contrast that with the general ugliness of fast food. Things have really run down hill.

      Believe it or, some of these places still exist here. You can go in and get some BBQ or a fried chicken special or have a sundae. Wouldn’t you rather take your family and eat unadulterated food and have a pleasant experience than deal with surly smelly help at McDonald’s?
