    why don't mcdonalds food rot

    Hello! McDonald's food is just like the food you prepare at home. If you think about the ingredients of our beef burgers for example, you will find 100% pure and Halal beef patties, farm-fresh tomatoes, lettuce and onions and high quality buns sourced from our approved bakery. Therefore, our food will also decay or rot when left for sometime in an environment that supports the rotting process. 

    However, there is something important to note about the process. Essentially, the microbes that cause rotting are a lot like us, in that they need water, nutrients, warmth and time to grow. If we take one or more of these elements away, then microbes cannot grow or spoil the food. McDonald's food generally has less humidity (or water) content, due to the fact that our patties are grilled on a double-sided hotplate, which extracts most of their humidity in the form of vapor; and our buns are toasted, thus losing significant amounts of their humidity, too. In a nutshell, McDonald's food would decay, but it could be in the form of drying rather than rotting, unless the cooked food's humidity is maintained by wrapping the food with cling foil or storing it in a high humidity environment.

    is it that your French fries are covered in chemicals?

    At McDondalds, we never use any harmful chemicals. As for additives and preservatives, like many food items that you buy at your local grocery store, some of our food items do contain preservatives. However, we have to point out that we strictly abide with regulations of the local authorities when it comes to the amount and type of preservatives used. Also, you will find several of our ingredients that do not contain any preservatives, such as our 100% pure and Halal beef patties.
