What is the McRib Pork Patty Made Of?

McRib is a barbecue-flavored pork sandwich that is only regularly published on the McDonald's menu. According to McDonald's, the sandwich is made of ground boneless pork shoulder emulsified with water, spices, dextrose sugar and preservatives to refine its flavor and texture. The mcrib is made of restructured meat, even though it has the shape of a real rib. The pie used in the mcrib sandwich in the past was made from composite ground pork shoulder.

During the pork shoulder milling process, all bones are removed and water, salt, dextrose and preservatives are added to the meat. From there, they ship them to McDonald's stores across the region for McRib fans to smear in barbecue sauce and bite into. The hamburger, which contains pork, water, salt, dextrose and preservatives, is sprayed with water to prevent dehydration during the freezing process. A Twitter user who goes by the name of “Strange and Amazing Facts” shared that the McRib is made from meat products including heart, calluses and more.

Chicago Magazine published the story that the ingredients actually consist of restructured meat products such as heart, calluses and scalded stomach. After visual inspection, the meat goes through the grinder before taking the shape of a rib rack. In an attempt to give pork the same height as beef in the institutional market, the National Council of Pork Producers funded Mandigo to show how to apply the new technique. Even more horrifying than the ingredient list are the allegations of animal abuse against Smithfield Foods, the world's largest pork producer and the origin of the meat used to form McRibs.

Azodicarbonamide is a flour bleaching agent that, when not used in McRib buns, lives on gym mats, yoga mats, and shoe soles. McDonald's lovers are looking forward to the big return of the fast-food restaurant's beloved McRib sandwich, which will be available nationwide starting December 2.The sandwich, as well as the cultural phenomenon of chasing the McRib, were the main theme of the Simpsons episode I'm Spelling as Fast as I Can, in which he parodies himself as the Ribwich and gains cult followers.
