If you like fast-food, more specifically McDonald's food you will without a doubt have heard of their famous Big Mac. But it turns out this legendary burger, as well as its famous secret sauce, is made in quite a specific way.
What is in a Big Mac?
If you’re wondering whether the Big Mac is hiding anything new the answer is: NO. And that’s the good news. A Big Mac is very simple to make and consists of just 2 patties from European farms, their famous burger sauce, a little lettuce, cheddar cheese, a few onions, gherkin and a sesame seed burger bun.
However, Big Macs also have food additives such as:
- Calcium propionate E282
- E270 lactic acid
- E211 sodium benzoate
The fast-food company has also said on their website:
Every additive in Europe is evaluated but he EFSA. Their use is authorised by the European Commission after evaluation and after demonstrating they are completely safe. They present no health risks for consumers.
Big Mac sauce in the UK?
The brand announced on Monday 8th June 2020 that they would be launching a limited edition version of their famous Big Mac sauce that you can purchase as an extra. From now, the sauce used in the world-famous burger will also be available to buy for boxes of 4, 6 and 9 Chicken Nuggets.
