How McDonald's makes their fries: Video reveals secrets behind the popular potato strips at the fast food joint


McDonald's is revealing how a potato makes it from the farm to the fast food joint.
A new video chronicles the plants' journey to become the tasty fried strip and aims to quash the rumors circulating about where the restaurant chain actually gets its food.
Scott Gibson, who works for McDonald's Canada, stepped forward to explain the process and set the story straight. Read all [link to www.dailymail.co.uk]

Re: How McDonald's makes their fries: Video reveals secrets behind the popular potato strips at the fast food joint
Wow

That process is drastically different than the process in the US!

They first take wood grain, potatoe paste and farmaldahyde into a forming mixture

From there, the liquid is dumped into a "potatoe cake square mold" then flash frozen. After freezing a conveyer takes them to a slicing block where a specified number of fries is precisely cut from each mold.
From there it's onto bagging and to your local McDonald's store!

It's much more cost effective and healthier for the life of the fry. US fries cost 80% less than those used for McDonalds Canada and we are lucky the USDA allows such methods that would never be tolerated by other governments for human consumption!

That guy is acting like a kid with his new toy tablet...so stupid. They could have just put the question on the screen in post production. It doesn't make you cool or hip to be holding electronic devices on camera. Reporters and weather channel people do it, too, and it's just so cheesy.

McDonalds fries are made and the potatoes grown just down the highway from me. I can vouch it's all real and non gmo. The French fry plant is beautiful and clean and modern. The only bad thing is the canola oil the fries are fried in.

Re: How McDonald's makes their fries: Video reveals secrets behind the popular potato strips at the fast food joint
that is not the whole secret , read on yahoo a while back that they soak the cut potatoes in cold water for 2 hours , changing water in between stated time to remove the starch so the potatoes don't cook too fast.thus allowed them to become crispy when frying longer.

Yes
McDonald's Canada!

Notice how they keep differentiating that the video represent McDonald's.ca
Instead of McDonald's, Inc.

There are already reports on how they are made in the us & they simply wanted to cover the "Canadian ass"

Wow :-)

China banned the use of potassium bromate in flour in 2005, as did several Western countries, including the European Union, Australia and New Zealand. It is still permitted in the US and Japan?

what do they add into wood grain to make it taste like potato?
why not to make potato fries once a month and freeze them? it is cheaper and instead of frying bake it crisp

If a company like McDonald's is forthright in providing this information, it is disinformation. They will only tell you what they want you to know.

Of course they are GMO. They are bred to be the perfect size, perfect colour, texture, and harvest volume.

Nobody can tell me that McDonald's fries are natural fried potatoes the way you and I would make them at home. I soak mine too.

I grow 4 varieties of potatoes in my garden and when I make homemade fries they are NOTHING like McDonald's. They are waaaaay better.

All I'd want to know is, WHAT chemical are they spraying on them?
No one is perfect. A babe before walking will first stumble and fall many times but NEVER gives up until he succeeds.

Always remember, ultimately, to never follow any person's belief. Your relationship with God is between you and God.

If nothing else, remember this: religion = subservience, control and conformity, the same template as EVERY government

"Most believers would kill truth if truth threatened their religion." L. K. Washburn

"This crime called blasphemy was invented by priests for the purpose of defending doctrines not able to take care of themselves." Robert Ingersoll

"If anyone wants to know how God feels, it's a warm light as if the sun is poking through dark clouds and lifting your spirits with pure joy."

That's YOUR opinion. They're fine with me, and the video said you can ask for fries Without salt. So, if you get too much salt, it's Your own damned fault.

they do that. It is actually a great way to be sure you are gettign fries fresh out of the fryer, as they have to make a new batch just for you! As for whether or not i believe this vid, I do. I think they made it, not to answer questions about the fries (seriously, who questions the fries??) but to deflect questions away from their meat products.

Listen, I wouldn't feed McDonald's to my dog but you're wrong about this one. Selective breeding or monoculture has nothing to do with genetic modification whatsoever. GMOs are the biggest threat to the planets health but it's no help throwing the label around where it doesn't apply.

That being said, GM potatoes WERE at one point used but when McDonald's realized it could effect their profits they forced producers to switch. McDonald's is the largest purchaser of potatoes, and apples among other things on Earth therefore all potato producers quit with GMO potatoes.

The key to defeating GMOs is to make companies realize It's hurting their profits.
