For the past 1 1/2 years, I have been under the understanding that McDonald's french fries were one of the only things that I could eat at their establishment. Last night, when looking at their allergen list on their website, I found this statement about their fries:
Potatoes, vegetable oil (canola oil, hydrogenated soybean oil, natural beef flavor [wheat and milk derivatives]*, citric acid [preservative]), dextrose, sodium acid
pyrophosphate (maintain color), salt. Prepared in vegetable oil (Canola oil, corn oil, soybean oil, hydrogenated soybean oil with TBHQ and citric acid added to
preserve freshness). Dimethylpolysiloxane added as an antifoaming agent.
CONTAINS: WHEAT AND MILK *(Natural beef flavor contains hydrolyzed wheat and hydrolyzed milk as starting ingredients).
Their OIL contains wheat?? Say WHAT????
I will admit that I was so upset by this statement! For some reason I found myself crying about it. It's not that I love their french fries, but it was an option for me that I used from time-to-time when I took my son for his favorite Chicken Nuggets.
