The McRib: 70 ingredients all restructured into one 

Did you know that the McRib is processed with 70 different ingredients which include azodicarbonamide, a flour-bleaching agent often used in producing foamed plastics? McRib’s are basically “restructured meat technology” containing a mixture of tripe, heart, and scalded stomach.

Proteins are extracted from this muscle mixture and they bind the pork trimmings together so they can be molded in a factory. The McRib is really just a molded blob of restructured meat, advertised and sold like fresh ribs.

There’s nothing real about it, the preparation or the substance. In fact, McRibs really came about because of a chicken shortage.

The restructured meat technology approach kept the McRib on the menu, despite the shortage, and the profits continued rolling in.
