McDonald's fries ingredients:


Potatoes, vegetable oil (canola oil, hydrogenated Soybean oil, natural beef flavor [Wheat and Lecthin derivatives], citric acid [preservative]), dextrose, sodium acid pyrophosphate (maintain color), salt. Prepared in vegetable oil (Canola oil, corn oil, Soybean oil, hydrogenated Soybean oil with TBHQ and citric acid added to preserve freshness). Dimethylpolysiloxane added as an antifoaming agent.


The beef flavor is added to simulate the original beef tallow they were fried in until 1990. McDonald's never claimed the fries were 'vegetarian', although they lost a lawsuit in 1991 filed by Hindus who felt that it was implied.
all french fries are the same mcdonalds french fries are the same than wendy's french fries or other french fries they have exactly the same thing in them.
McDonald fries are made with artificial chemicals, and derivatives of milk and beef extract. The chemicals they use prevent fries from spoiling, and from digesting properly in your system.

This short list of ingredients is from the McDonald's website:

Potatoes, vegetable oil (canola oil, hydrogenated soybean oil, natural beef flavor [wheat and milk derivatives]*, citric acid [preservative]), dextrose, sodium acid pyrophosphate (maintain color), salt. Prepared in vegetable oil ((may contain one of the following: Canola oil, corn oil, soybean oil, hydrogenated soybean oil with TBHQ and citric acid added to preserve freshness), dimethylpolysiloxane added as an antifoaming agent).

CONTAINS: WHEAT AND MILK *(Natural beef flavor contains hydrolyzed wheat and hydrolyzed milk as starting ingredients).

The cryptic phrase "natural beef flavor" hides dozens of chemicals whose affect on our bodies we can only guess.
