Yuck! It turns out the McRib may actually be McGross!
America seems to be lovin' the McRib, mostly because it plays hard to get and only appears periodically, but we bet the sandwich would lose a few fans if they learned what chemicals are inside of it.
Among the 70 ingredients you'd only find in a chemistry lab, one is BANNED from Europe and Australia as a food additive!
Azodicarbonamide is a flour-bleaching
ingredient chemical found in the McRib's bun, which is also used to manufacture foamed plastics like in gym mats and the soles of shoes.
Even more disturbing than knowing what else the chemical is used for, azodicarbonamide has been determined by England's Health and Safety Executive to be a "respiratory sensitizer" that potentially contributes to asthma through occupational exposure!
As much as we love eating things we can barely pronounce, we'll be skipping the McRib next time we stroll through the golden arches.
If you're cool with asthma causing chemicals in your food, don't forget to check the McRib's nutrition label.
It's got nearly half of your recommended daily intake of sodium with 890 mg, plus 24 grams of fat!
Maybe McDonald's is actually doing our population a favor by offering the McRib for a limited time only.
We're warning you now!
It's not for the faint of heart! LITERALLY!
The always elusive McRib has somehow slithered its way back into the McDonald's menu at select locations throughout the country, and although it's no secret to most that no, it's actually not a real rib, one may surprised to find out exactly what's in it - and how unhealthy it truly is!
According to the fast food joint's website, there are 70 ingredients in the sandwich - 34 in the bun alone - which include ammonium sulfate, polysorbate 80, and azodicarbonamide, which is a flour-bleaching agent most commonly used in the manufacturing of foamed plastics and the soles of shoes!
And if that isn't incentive enough, one contains 980 mg of sodium, more than half your recommended daily intake, and 10 g of saturated fat!
YUM! Who's hungry?!
While the country was rocked by the midterm elections yesterday, the biggest news of the day had nothing to do with politics, and everything to do with juicy pork slathered with BBQ sauce and gently placed in between two buns.
We’re talking about the McRib — it’s back!
While we normally wouldn’t endorse fattening McDonald’s food, we might make an exception for the McRib. If you can squeeze a little unhealthiness into your diet, go grab a McRib! If nothing else, do it for nostalgia’s sake!
