McPlant is cooked separately from other McDonald’s burgers and sandwiches, using dedicated equipment to ensure it doesn’t come into contact with meat products.

 

How is the plant based patty cooked in restaurant?

The plant based patty is cooked in an oven, not on the grill. While meat products are also cooked in the oven, this will not be at the same time or using the same equipment as McPlant. McPlant uses specific equipment, including oven trays and tongs, so it will not come into contact with meat products, and the ovens and equipment are cleaned regularly.

How can McPlant be vegan if it states it may contain milk?

  

McPlant does not include any ingredients within the recipe that contain milk. Our products are prepared with care and we have procedures and controls in place throughout our supply chain and in our restaurants to ensure any risk of milk cross-contamination is minimised. However, due to the nature of our kitchens we cannot guarantee any product is allergen free. If you have an allergy please check out our allergen information in our nutrition calculator here.

What other McDonald’s products are vegan certified?

  

We have other vegan items on our menu including Veggie Dippers, the Spicy Veggie Wrap, fries and some drinks- look out for the Vegetarian Society's vegan logo.
