McDonald’s to reduce ingredients in their chicken

There has been pressure lately from consumers on restaurants to deliver healthier foods with more wholesome ingredients.

A press release was published stating the intentions of McDonald’s to reduce ingredients in their chicken.

McDonald’s is introducing Artisan Grilled Chicken, which they state will be prepared in their restaurants.

As written in McDonald’s statement: “Artisan Grilled Chicken will begin rolling out across all McDonald’s U.S. restaurants replacing all grilled chicken entrees including Grilled Chicken Deluxe Sandwiches, Premium McWraps, Snack Wraps and Premium Salads.”

The famous fast food restaurant will be dropping six ingredients from its current chicken breast, and will only use the following 12 ingredients: boneless skinless chicken breast with rib meat, water, salt, vegetable starch, sugar, garlic powder, lemon juice concentrate, honey, onion powder, dried vinegar, natural flavors, and baking soda.

Compared to the previous grilled chicken recipe, the new Artisan Grilled Chicken filet has fewer ingredients and no longer includes sodium phosphates, a type of salt that helps retain moisture,” according to McDonald’s statement.

The chicken is free of artificial ingredients, colors and preservatives. It will be seasoned with pantry spices and herbs like parsley, salt and onion powder, and will be cooked in a canola and olive oil blend.

This move comes after McDonald’s also stated that they would remove antibiotics from their chicken.
