Mcdonald's French Fries Not Safe?
0

349 posts in this topic

Perhaps this has already been posted but I thought McDonald's fries were safe... at this web site for McDonalds USA ingredients it clearly says that the fries contain wheat ingredients! When did this change occur?

The french fries are listed about half way down the page and it clearly says:

natural flavor ( beef, wheat, dairy sources).

This was the only place I would eat french fries and now it looks like that is out.

the page is here:

These are the ingredients that I see for fries:

French Fries:

Potatoes, partially hydrogenated soybean oil, natural flavor (beef source), dextrose, sodium acid pyrophosphate (to preserve natural color). Cooked in partially hydrogenated vegetable oils (may contain partially hydrogenated soybean oil and/or partially hydrogenated corn oil and/or partially hydrogenated canola oil and/or cottonseed oil and/or sunflower oil and/or corn oil).

They are also still listed on their gluten free menu items. I think you must have mis-read somewhere. Sorry!!

French Fries:Potatoes, partially hydrogenated soybean oil, natural flavor (beef, wheat and dairy sources), dextrose, sodium acid pyrophosphate (to preserve natural color). Breading set in vegetable oil. Cooked in partially hydrogenated vegetable oils (may contain partially hydrogenated soybean oil and/or partially hydrogenated corn oil and/or partially hydrogenated canola oil and/or cottonseed oil and/or sunflower oil and/or corn oil). Contains wheat and milk ingredients.

I guess that is proof that they are not safe. No wonder I always felt sick after eating their fries!

Hi Susan,

I'm a Suzanne, but people call me Susan about half the time :lol:

As for the fries, I'm not seeing what you're seeing...this is what the page says when I pull it up:

French Fries:

Potatoes, partially hydrogenated soybean oil, natural flavor (beef source), dextrose, sodium acid pyrophosphate (to preserve natural color). Cooked in partially hydrogenated vegetable oils (may contain partially hydrogenated soybean oil and/or partially hydrogenated corn oil and/or partially hydrogenated canola oil and/or cottonseed oil and/or sunflower oil and/or corn oil).

Is there something else I'm not seeing?

I am horrified, by the way, to see that the fries still contain beef. I'm no longer vegetarian, but I bet alot of people who are think these are okay for them. I thought they changed this years ago after vegetarians got upset.

I am not seeing it either. I am looking at the page for the USA though, so that may be making a difference. I live in the US, so not concerned with outside of the US.

The link that Susan provided is from the US and MacDonald's states that,

"French Fries:

Potatoes, partially hydrogenated soybean oil, natural flavor (beef, wheat and dairy sources), dextrose, sodium acid pyrophosphate (to preserve natural color). Breading set in vegetable oil. Cooked in partially hydrogenated vegetable oils (may contain partially hydrogenated soybean oil and/or partially hydrogenated corn oil and/or partially hydrogenated canola oil and/or cottonseed oil and/or sunflower oil and/or corn oil).

Try reading the link she posted. :rolleyes:

The part I quoted before is exactly what it reads when I use the link pixiegirl gave. No wheat. I wonder if we are being routed to different sites based on where we are located? Why would a huge company like McDonald's trick people by changing the ingredients around?

ON the page I posted it clearly says wheat. the page is here:

http://www.mcdonalds.com/app_controller.nu...ents.index.html

to find it i went to mcdonalds.com then to USA then to nutrition then to ingredients.

I copied the ingredients for fries below:

French Fries:

Potatoes, partially hydrogenated soybean oil, natural flavor (beef, wheat and dairy sources), dextrose, sodium acid pyrophosphate (to preserve natural color). Breading set in vegetable oil. Cooked in partially hydrogenated vegetable oils (may contain partially hydrogenated soybean oil and/or partially hydrogenated corn oil and/or partially hydrogenated canola oil and/or cottonseed oil and/or sunflower oil and/or corn oil). Contains wheat and milk ingredients.

Be sure that you have cleared your history as you may not have update to this page but pulling an old page up from your cache. Again I see it clearly.

Wow I can't believe it doesn't say wheat on your pages, i cleared all my history and cookies and went back again thru the main mcdonalds.com web site, again went to USA and it still says wheat. I can tell you it changed because I looked at this a few months ago and it did NOT say wheat and it does now. I'm in the USA so I'm not sure why I would get a different page then anyone else in the USA.

Wow this has me really upset! I wrote them a nasty letter!

Well, no matter how much refreshing I do, mine won't update (tried the shift trick too, but no luck). Strange since I've never been to the site before, but I trust you guys. That's crappy...I hadn't even treated myself to any since going gluten-free.

Try dumping your cache. Assuming your unsing a current version of IE (most ppl do..) go to the TOOLS menu then INTERNET OPTIONS then click the button that says "DELETE FILES" (warning, it could take a hwile to complete depending on your setup).

Once that is done, thry again with the SHFIT-REFRESH.

This is unbelievable! I have pasted the link to their gluten free menu (for the US) and french fries are clearly not on there! But hash browns are - and wouldn't you assume that the hash browns are fried in the same frier as the fries?????? UGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHH

Thank you for posting this - I still cannot believe it!

    • JaneWhoLovesRain, what is odder to me than that there is an older disease that Doctor's have forgotten that explains many of the same symptom's and doctor's do not even think about it today since the "War on Pellagra" was declared over a 100 years and why doctor's don't (at least in the West) think about it any more. Dr. Heaney wrote a nice online article about this topic. http://blogs.creighton.edu/heaney/2013/11/18/pellagra-and-the-four-ds/ Here is fairly recent article about how Pellagra can present in patients and the title says' it all from the International Journal of Dermatology. https://www.researchgate.net/publication/227807440_Pellagra_Dermatitis_dementia_and_diarrhea Dermatitis, dementia and Diarrhea are the 3 D's (4th D is death) of Pellagra. Typically it is only diagnosed today if you are in a subset of the population like an alcoholic for example or you have a gastric bypass. See this article from the New England Journal of Medicine http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMicm050641 and despite all the signs of Pellagra (skin issues etc.) . . .. Pellagra in it native tongue (Italian) where it was first diagnosed was called "rough/sour skin" who knows that today??????? Very few I would venture to guess. The NEJM can only say they have "Pellagra-like dermatitis" it has been so long since any doctor's seen it they can't (with confidence) diagnose it clinically. But taking Niacinamide 3/day for 6 months can help alleviate your symptom's if indeed the DH of Celiac is the dermatitis of Pellagra being medically misdiagnosed. Here is a an article featured on celiac.com about why/how Pellagra can be confused for Celiac disease. https://www.celiac.com/articles/24658/1/A-Differential-Diagnosis-How-Pellagra-Can-be-Confused-with-Celiac-Disease/Page1.html Because they haven't seen Pellagra in 75+ years no one recognizes it anymore. ****this is not medical advice. I hope this is helpful. Knitty Kitty and I are the Niacin warriors on this board. See this thread where Knitty Kitty says Niacin helped the itching of DH. If that is so then it might help your DH (if you have it) and your GI problems too if they are caused by co-morbid Pellagra. see my blog post about where I say "I had Celiac Disease and Developed Pellagra" that talks about this in more detail. Again good luck and your continued journey and I hope this is helpful. 2 Timothy 2: 7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things” this included. posterboy by the grace of God,
    • I should say I am confused about how to interpret---   Does this mean celiac or no celiac?   Thank you all---I greatly appreciate it.
    • KathleenH, I swear by MatteosPizza and they make National Delivery. I have been known to buy them by the dozen. https://www.matteospizza.com/ BellaMonica's is not a bad corn based crust.  By not bad I mean "suprisingly good" that can be bought at most grocery stores. Here is there ZIP locator page to see if they are carried in your local area. http://glutenfreepizza.typepad.com/gluten-free-pizza/where-to-find-bella-monica.html I hope this is helpful. posterboy,  
    • Hey all--have Hashimoto's and am being worked up for epigastric discomfort and IBS like symptoms---   My blood work had an IgA within the lower end of normal range, negative TTG, but weakly positive DGP.   My endoscopy showed a "nodular" duodenum with the biopsy stating there was "reactive lymphoid hyperplasia"...   I have a follow-up with the GI in 3 weeks.   Wondering about any help?
