I searched online and found out that a McDonald’s strawberry shake has 59 ingredients (flavors). I’ll also mention the shake’s other ingredients:
milkfat and nonfat milk, sugar, sweet whey, high-fructosecorn syrup, guar gum, monoglycerides and diglycerides, cellulose gum, sodium phosphate, carrageenan, citric acid, E129and artificial strawberry flavor.”
Here’s the different artificial flavors in a McD strawberry shake:
“amyl acetate, amyl butyrate, amyl valerate, anethol, anisyl formate, benzyl acetate, benzyl isobutyrate,butyric acid, cinnamyl isobutyrate, cinnamyl valerate, cognac essential oil, diacetyl, dipropyl ketone, ethyl butyrate,ethyl cinnamate, ethyl heptanoate, ethyl heptylate, ethyl lactate, ethyl methylphenylglycidate, ethyl nitrate, ethylpropionate, ethyl valerate, heliotropin, hydroxyphrenyl- 2-butanone (10% solution in alcohol), ionone, isobutylanthranilate, isobutyl butyrate, lemon essential oil, maltol, 4-methylacetophenone, methyl anthranilate, methylbenzoate, methyl cinnamate, methyl heptine carbonate, methyl naphthyl ketone, methyl salicylate, mint essential oil,neroli essential oil, nerolin, neryl isobutyrate, orris butter, phenethyl alcohol, rose, rum ether, undecalactone,vanillin and solvent.”
Sounds yummy…uh NOT! I haven’t drank a McDonald’s shake in over 10 years, and now that I know what’s in it, you won’t be seeing me step into a McDonald’s restaurant. None of their food is healthy, loaded with lots of fat and sugar.
