Whether Veg or not, Its best not to eat there!, No one Knows if the people who cook the food may put the veggie stuff mixed with the meat when frying!

...and heres what they say about the bun... Q8: I would like to know if the buns and cheese used in the filet o fish are suitable for vegetarians. I am aware that in the USA, the buns and cheese contain 'enzymes', are these plant-based or animal derived? A: Good news, the cheese and burger buns used by McDonald’s UK are suitable for vegetarians. Additionally both the McDonald’s Milkshakes and Fries are suitable and have been approved by the Vegetarian Society. (September 2009)

 

2009, that was almost 3 years ago so you never know, the recipe might have changed...

 

but however, Best option for a muslim, DO NOT eat there!

Here is my research about ingredients in mcdonalds food:

 

Desptite healthier-looking menu options, McDonalds foods still contain toxic synthetic ingredients, high sugars, and trans-fats

 

Every mouthful of McDonalds meal contains a handful of chemicals that raise 'bad' cholesterol levels, increase diabetes risk, lower immunity, and damage DNA. In fact fast food contains so many harmful ingredients that I wouldn't even feed it to a pet because it would be cruel.


When you go to the fast-food drive-through, you are:

  • paying to harm your own health;
  • your children's health;
  • reducing your quality of life because the toxicity of eating synthetic chemicals will trigger illness;
  • put more money into the hands of the medical insurance companies.

Still lovin' it?

Heard it before? Well despite the illusion of a gradual switch to a healthier menu containing salads and smoothies, McDonald's line-up still contains nasty health-eroding chemicals: trans-fats, high levels of sugar, artificial sweeteners, petro-chemicals, and high-fructose corn syrup. The kids meals and salads also contain frightening ingredients and high levels of sugar.Having perused their menus and nutritional information for their meals, it's incredible what synthetic chemicals they add to salads, chicken meals, burgers, and even to their drinks. Did you know that many of their foods and drinks contain tertiary butylhydroquinone (TBHQ), a chemical preservative that is so deadly that just five grams is fatal? One gram of TBHQ can cause nausea, vomiting, ringing in the ears, delirium, a sense of suffocation, and collapse.


McDonald's foods still contain trans-fats, in addition to a whole host of synthetic chemicals to produce a taste which they deliberately engineer to be addictive, so you spend more money with them according to investigations by Eric Schlosser in his book Fast Food Nation.

 Trans Fat Lie

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration decided that a food can contain trans-fats and that the amount doesn't have to be listed on the ingredient or nutrition list, providing the amount is not more than half a gram. Many burgers, shakes, and breakfast meals contain trans-fats . The problems with these oils is that they induce free radical damage in the body, which leads to artery damage, DNA damage, and oxidation of cholesterol, a.k.a. 'bad cholesterol'. You are getting this with every mouthful.


Almost all foods on McDonald's menu contain hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated oils, that are also harmful to the body because they damage your tissues and raise your 'bad' cholesterol. Did you know that if a food manufacturer's food contains less than 0.5g of trans-fats then it doesn't have to legally list trans-fats on the label?

Here is just one example of what McDonalds put in their foods. The unhealthful ingredients in McDonalds' Chicken nuggets (straight from the McDonalds' web site) include:

  • sodium phosphates;
  • bleached wheat flour (nutrients removed);
  • food starch-modified (likely genetically-modified);
  • dextrose (sugar);
  • partially hydrogenated soybean oil and cottonseed oil with mono-and diglycerides, (trans fats);
  • Prepared in vegetable oil (Canola oil, corn oil, soybean oil, hSydrogenated soybean oil) (trans fats);
  • TBHQ, tertiary butylhydroquinone, a petroleium dervived product;
  • Dimethylpolysiloxane added as an antifoaming agent (a form of silicone used in cosmetics, and Silly Putty).
