McDonald’s Selections Getting Healthier

The 325 McDonald’s fast-food restaurants in the DFW Metroplex will begin serving preservative-free fare from selected menu items; some won’t contain artificial colors or flavors, either, including its iconic Chicken McNuggets. Other foods include pork sausage patties, eggs served on McGriddles, bagel and biscuit breakfast sandwiches, and scrambled eggs on breakfast platters.

McDonald’s is rolling out new buns this month that no longer contain high-fructose corn syrup. The Artisan roll introduced in 2015 never contained it. In total, these changes touch ingredients in nearly half of the food on McDonald’s menu.

“I am delighted to see Mc- Donald’s committed to providing good food that meets its customers’ expectations,” states local McDonald’s Registered Dietitian Carina Saez. “Chicken McNuggets without artificial preservatives is just another example of how McDonald’s is improving their food with new choices and better ingredients.”
