In the U.S., McDonald’s is taking out the artificial preservatives, flavours and added colours from its classic burgers.  

McDonald’s recently announced its classic burgers will no longer contain artificial preservatives, flavours, or added colours. Only the pickle contains an artificial preservative.

U.S. consumers can expect this from the hamburger, cheeseburger, double cheeseburger, McDouble®, Quarter Pounder® with Cheese, Double Quarter Pounder with Cheese, and the Big Mac®.

The fast-food giant also reiterated that its quarter-pound burgers contain 100% fresh beef and the Chicken McNuggets® are free from preservatives.

Cheese is made with a blend of real cheese, including Cheddar and Colby, and other ingredients including salt, cream and colour, but no oil, starch or fillers. The American Cheese is made without added colours from artificial sources and sorbic acid.

Even the potassium sorbate, sodium benzoate and calcium disodium EDTA will be eliminated from the Big Mac Special Sauce.

The Pounder and Big Mac buns are free from calcium propionate, an artificial preservative, while the buns on classic burgers do not contain artificial flavours or added colours from artificial sources, and artificial preservatives.

The beef is 100% pure, without additives, preservatives or fillers, only a pinch of salt and pepper.

This initiative to remove artificial ingredients is a continuation of McDonald’s commitment to improve its products and services. It also commits to sustainable sourcing of all McCafé® coffee by 2020, to transition to cage-free eggs in the US and Canada by 2025. By 2020, it will source a portion of beef from its top 10 beef-sourcing countries from suppliers participating in sustainability programs aligned with the Global Roundtable for Sustainable Beef principles and criteria. – Source: McDonald’s
