MCDONALD’S has revealed it’s removed all artificial ingredients from its burgers… except for pickles.
The world’s largest burger chain today said classics like the Big Mac and Quarter Pounder with Cheese are preservative-free, with reformulated buns and sauces.
Pickles on the sandwiches still contain artificial preservatives, but customers can request sandwiches without them.
McDonald’s has been gradually removing preservatives from its menu for several years in an effort to appeal to more health-conscious buyers.
In 2016, it removed high-fructose corn syrup from its buns and took artificial preservatives out of its Chicken McNuggets.
The Chicago-based company says around one-third of its sandwiches still have artificial colors, flavors or preservatives, including Egg McMuffins and Filet-O-Fish. It hasn’t set a timeline for removing those ingredients.
