McDonalds and the crispy fries!! Now you
> know why!
> McDonald's announced in the 1990's that it changed
> its frying oil from animal fat to vegetable oil for
> those who are vegetarian. However, it turned out
> that this information did not turn out to be
> completely true French fries are fried slightly in
> animal fat then frozen and shipped to all the
> McDonald's stores for the final frying. The
> following information was announced on the Arabic
> BBC channel: Basically, what they do is they cut the
> potatoes into slices and then coat them with a thin
> layer of lard (pig fat) or cow fat so that when it
> is fried it will crunch. Then these fries are
> shipped to McDonald's stores in different parts of
> the world including India and the Arab countries.
> McDonald'sapologized to the Indians after receiving
> complaints, since a good number of Indians do not
> eat anything that has ingredients derived from
> animals. And of course no apology has been made to
> the Arab countries. So in summary, McDonald's fries
> are coated with a layer of either cow fat or lard
> (pig fat which is thicker and cheaper) then shipped
> to all McDonald's stores over the world, which is
> then fried in vegetable fat. Please alert all those
> you know of this information
