Have you ever wondered how they make McDonald’s french fries? They taste so good and you can never get the same taste anywhere else!
Now, the former Mythbusters host Grant Imahara reveals the 13 other ingredients contained in a humble McDonald's fry as he travelled to the fast food chain's potato processing plant in Idaho.
He has witnessed the whole production process from start to finish.
According to Imahara, McDonald’s fries are involved in two rounds of frying and also discovered that dimethyl polysiloxane is used in the making of McDonald's fries along with a petrol-based chemical called tertiary butyl hydroquinone (TBHQ).
However, the both additives are safe and consumed for perfectly good reasons. Dimethylpolysiloxane is added to prevent the cooking oil from foaming while tertiary butyl hydroquinone (TBHQ) is applied as a food preservative.
