The famous chef Jamie Oliver has finally made his mark by persuading one of the biggest U.S fast food chains in the world to change their burger recipe.
Recently, Jamie Oliver has won a lawsuit against the world’s largest fast-food networks in the world. He discovered a terrible truth about McDonald’s – what those “tasty” products are cooked from.
McDonald’s have altered the ingredients after the Naked Chef forced them to remove a processed food type that he labelled ‘pink slime’.
James gave a statement that the products prepared at McDonald’s, in fact, cannot be called …food. The meat for hamburgers, Big Mac and other goods is prepared from beef fat and is washed in ammonium hydroxide. A procedure that severely harms human health.
The food activist was shocked when he learned that ammonium hydroxide was being used by McDonald’s to convert fatty beef offcuts into a beef filler for its burgers in the USA.
According to the famous chef ‘Basically, we’re taking a product that would be sold at the cheapest form for dogs and after this process we can give it to humans’ .
In England and Ireland ammonium hydroxide was not used to beef mixture, these countries opting for fresh meat from farmers. After his campaign, Jamie Oliver has managed to win the trial, McDonald’s has acknowledged “guilt” and removed ammonium hydroxide from the production of beef mixture.
While in the US, the use of ammonium hydroxide is approved by the Ministry of Agriculture of the United States, and consumers are not informed of the use of this procedure.
He also showed his audience the raw ‘pink slime’ produced in the ammonium hydroxide process used by producers named Beef Products Inc (BPI).
Now after months of campaigning on his hit US television show McDonald’s have admitted defeat and the fast food giant has abandoned the beef filler from its burger patties.
Even the US Department of Agriculture microbiologist Geral Zirnstein agreed with Jamie that ammonium hydroxide agent should be banned.
