    If you enjoyed this list of 10 McDonald's fires secrets that you would never have known, then comment: #McDonalds #Fries #FastFood
    0:24 McDonald’s Fries are more than they appear!
    2:04 McDonald’s fries are made from real potatoes
    3:05 McDonald’s fries are actually cut with a knife
    4:13 That special flavor that makes McDonald’s fries so tasty!
    5:49 You can always ask for ‘fresh fries’
    6:59 McDonald’s fries come pre-frozen and are re-fried before being served to you
    8:37 These fries are not for the weight-watchers!
    10:20 Ask for salt-free fries at Mickey D’s
    11:27 More than just ketchup to use as dipping sauce
    12:34 There’s a reason why they always look the same
    - It would be quite natural to assume that the ingredients to make fries would be very simple, probably just potatoes, oil, and salt. But that’s not the case with the world-famous McDonald’s fries. What gives them their unique taste (and shelf life) is a whole load of other ingredients, a grand total of 19!
    - Adding to the shroud of mystery surrounding McDonald’s fries is the rumor that they are not made from real potatoes, but some sort of fake potato substitute. Well, that’s not true at all. McDonald’s fries are made from real potatoes that are sourced from a wide variety of regions across the U.S.
    - Contrary to popular belief, McDonald’s fries do not have any ridiculous-sounding secret manufacturing process where potato pulp or mush is carefully shaped into uniformly sized fries! McDonald’s fries are made from real potatoes that are cut with a knife.
    - Ever wondered what makes the fries at McDonald’s taste so yummy and different from fries at other fast-food outlets? Let’s just say that there’s a secret ingredient for that too! It’s their ‘natural beef flavor’ that imparts the famous ‘McDonald’s fries taste’ to the fries.
    - Did you know that you could ask for ‘fresh fries’ at any McDonald’s outlet? Everyone loves hot crispy fries that are well salted and straight out of the fryer. Most often, it’s the delicious fries that draw most people to McDonald’s.
    - Believe it or not, there is an actual assembly-line production process involved in creating the perfect McDonald’s fries! As mentioned earlier, the process involves the unloading, peeling, and washing of potatoes before they are fed into a high-pressure water tube to be sliced into precise fry shapes.
    - The calorie-count of fries at most McDonald’s outlets is seriously high. On average, a medium portion of McDonald’s fries has about 340 calories, 44 grams of carbohydrates and 16 grams of fat. Yes, you heard that right, 340 calories for just a side portion of fries!
    - Just like there is an option of asking for ‘fresh fries’ at McDonald’s outlets, you also have the option of asking for ‘fries without salt’. Who knew! While the option of asking for ‘fries without salt’ definitely qualifies as a hidden McDonald’s secret.
    - While most fast-food restaurants offer just the usual ketchup, mustard, and mayonnaise dipping sauces, McDonald’s has a plethora of options that you can pick from. While most McDonald’s outlets in the U.S. offer specialty dipping sauces only with their McNuggets, there’s nothing stopping you from asking for those same sauces for your fries as well.
    - If you’ve always suspected that the fries at McDonald’s always look the same or look exactly ‘as shown on TV’, then you’re right - they do always look the same! And according to the people at McDonald's, the secret to this uniformity in appearance is the dextrose that is added to the fries right after they are cut into the quintessential fry shapes.

    So you can ask for 'fresh fries' and you'll get them no problems asked. But if you ask for 'salt free fries' which would require them make you fresh fries and they hate you? lol

    Maybe you could make the video without the stupid, unnecessary movie shots? This is the second vid like this of yours. I find it annoying, and really takes away from the validity of what your video is actually about. I wont be watching any more of them if this is your modus operandi. Thumbs down.

    Way to avoid the actual truth about fries. Try talking about the growing and cultivating the potatoes.

    Don't ask for "fresh fries." you sound like a dick. You ask for "fries without salt." both requests mean the same and pisses off the cooks.....but the lattre is less offensive.

      Joseph Bennett 4 months ago

      @Daniel Gonzalez yes , McDonald's does nothing but marketing they don't actually produce the food themselves it's all made by other companies and then McDonald's purchases the products in Mass quantity for a large amount of money. The products are constantly supplied to them to keep them in business.

      @Daniel Gonzalez nope, McDonald's doesn't make any of their own food they purchase the nuggets from Tyson in Tennessee and the fries are made by a company called Simplot, And the beef is purchased from a meat supply company.

      BabbleTop so as you say “only they (being McDonalds) know what goes on in their restaurant” so why do you bother with these videos then? And how can we believe any of it is true?
      Show us your evidence to prove any of what you say in this video and other McDonalds videos is actually true then......

      BabbleTop I don’t eat thin crappy fry’s, I either make my own chips (and I ain’t talking about what you Americans call chips) from real potatoes and cook them in my air fryer or get some decent chips (again made from real potatoes) from the local chip shop.
      That way I know exactly what going into making them..... 100% potatoes and oil (when purchased from the chip shop) and not all the crap McDonalds use.....

    When you ask for no salt on your fries, we just use a clean serving trey to put the new fries on and then use the gloves or unsealed scooper to do your fries. Fuck wiping the thing down. Also if you want it fresh just fucking ask, don’t as for no salt.

  • techmaester
    techmaester 4 months ago +1

    Actually what this video does not tell you is that if you ask for these sauces they charge 10 or 15 extra cents. Not free. At Wendy’s it is free though. Dairy Queen it used to be no extra cost but they charge for sauces for fries. Unless it comes with sauce such as chicken strips, and when you want more sauce when you run out for your strips or nuggets that is free.

    One of the secrets is all the addictive chemicals they put into a sack of potatoes. I mean fries are suppose to be cut potatoes and grease. That's it. But not McDonald's.You'd be better off cutting your own potatoes and cooking them. It doesn't matter if they used real potatoes if they throw all of those chemicals in it.
