McDonald’s Reveals How It Makes McNuggets — And You Won’t Believe What’s in Them


Just kidding. You will absolutely believe what’s in them. Everywhere you look on the Internet today, you will find the videos below, produced by McDonald’s Canada, which purport to demonstrate exactly how McNuggets get made. (The pro-cess, as they say up in Canada.) The good news: There is no “pink goop.” The completely expected news: There is a lot of beige goop. In fact, it’s all beige goop! They just grind those birds up until they’re a formless mass of flesh, shape ‘em, batter ‘em, fry ‘em, freeze ‘em, and ship ‘em on off to your local Mickey D’s. Somewhere along the line, McDonald’s Canada employs a silicone-based polymer called dimethylpolysiloxane, but the videos do not show you that part of the pro-cess.
