The McRib Contains an Ingredient Found in Yoga Mats
At least it’s not made from downward dog meat.
The McRib is nasty. Nobody—McDonald’s included—has made any bones about it (crappy pun intended). One serving has 28 grams of fat, 8 of which are saturated, and 890mgs of sodium. Eating them daily would be like getting your nutrients from a crisco-slathered salt-lick attached to the wall by your bed.
Besides being nutritionally vapid, the pork-based sandwich is gross to look at: The bun is bright white and otherwise nondescript, and the meat is grey, lumpy, and molded into the shape of a small dog’s rib cage. As pointed out by Time’s Healthland blog late last week, the horrible sandwich is made from a full 70 ingredients—34 of which are found in the bun. Among those ingredients: “azodicarbonamide, ammonium sulfate and polysorbate 80.”comments powered by Disqus
