Our Food Philosophy

At McDonald’s, we’re making changes based on what we’re hearing from all of you.

That’s why we work hard to make tasty food with a “less is more” philosophy. But what does that mean for our ingredients? It means we use 100% real beef patties seasoned with just a pinch of salt and pepper. It means our Egg McMuffin® sandwich is made with a freshly cracked egg. And, in the US, our fish filets are made from sustainably sourced Alaskan Pollock. It means we use real buttermilk in our Buttermilk Crispy Chicken and our Chicken McNuggets® are made with white meat chicken. To put it frankly, it means —The Simpler The Better™.

Chicken McNuggets®

Our Chicken McNuggets® are made with 100% white meat chicken, no artificial colors, preservatives or flavors.
