We are all guilty of grabbing a quick meal at Mcdonald’s and then feeling guilty about it after. Most of us know that Mcdonald’s isn’t exactly the healthiest meal option, but we may not know why!
Yes, obesity is a major problem when eating excessive amounts of junk food. However, there are many secret ingredients found in these meals which would ruin our appetites if we knew about them, and some of them could affect our health as well!
Let’s go behind the scenes, into the world of Mcdonald’s hidden ingredients, and discover why we should stop eating it once and for all!
Dangerous: Ammonium Sulphate
Ammonium Sulphate was originally produced from ‘ammonia released during manufacturing coal gas (used to illuminate cities) or from coal coke used to generate steel’. Doesn’t sound too appetizing, does it? Well, it’s now an ingredient you can find in the McDonald’s buns!
Ammonia sulfate can affect our health in different ways, being toxic to anything it comes in direct contact with, such as your eyes, mouth, skin and digestive system. If you enter into contact with extreme amounts of ammonia, it can cause severe burning, lung disease, blindness and even death.
Not quite the outcomes you’d want after eating a humble looking Mcdonalds bun!
