What really in Mcdonalds


The Cheeseburgers

They ingredients changed a lot but its still made with....
  • Ammonium chloride… sounds tasty right? Did you know it is also an ingredient in fireworks, safety matches and contact explosives? Eat up.
  • Ammonium sulfate is used most commonly as an artificial fertilizer for alkaline soils. It’s also in flame retardant materials. Ammonium sulfate activates yeast, so it helps to get industrially produced bread to rise.
  • The soybean and/or canola oil used here are most likely GMO. They are also foods I generally avoid for a number of reasons.
