McDonald’s has announced it has removed all artificial ingredients from its burgers.

As of Wednesday, the world’s largest burger chain says classics like the Big Mac and Quarter Pounder with Cheese are preservative-free, with reformulated buns and sauces, shares Daily Mail.

Pickles on the sandwiches still contain artificial preservatives, but customers can request sandwiches without pickles.

McDonald’s has been gradually removing preservatives from its menu for several years in an effort to appeal to more health-conscious buyers.

Good to hear!

  • Good one McDonalds,way to go!


  • So no changes with the cheeseburger then? I had one yesterday and it tasted weird.


  • I didn’t think MacDonalds were massively unhealthy anyway. Mind you, we hardly ever have it, so I guess it doesn’t affect us much. Those that eat it daily will benefit


  • Its about time they have decided to change


  • Fresh is best. Well done on changing some of your ingredients.


  • Good to hear they make attempts to make their menu healthier.

    • Yep little changes do make a difference.


  • Good on them for looking at this change to their menu.


  • This is a very welcome change


  • Some improvement is better than none, I guess..still not a healthy place to eat at…although I love it! :)


  • Now for the benefit of people with wheat and other grain allergies (including people with Coeliac Disease) they need to introduce the option of Gluten Free rolls and salad dressings. There is two stores (Singleton is one of them) that are certified as Gluten Free Options. The criteria is very strict.
