Was just reading an article on Yahoo news on the McRib. It says there are roughly 70 ingredients that make up the bun, sauce, and the McRib together. 70!?! It also says if you really knew all the ingredients, like the one's you can not pronounce, you may not want to eat another one.
Here is more on the McRib.
The bun alone contains 34, says TIME's Melnick. In addition to chemicals like ammonium sulfate and polysorbate 80, the most egregious may be azodicarbonamide - "a flour-bleaching agent most commonly used in the manufactur[ing] of foamed plastics like gym mats the and soles of shoes." According to McDonald's own ingredient list, the bun also includes calcium sulfate and ethoxylated mono- and diglycerides, among other chemicals.
Think I will just keeping making McKen's. At least I know of most of what my ribs are.
