What's Inside the McRib? Uncovering the Main Ingredient of McDonald's Iconic Sandwich

The McRib sandwich is an iconic fast-food item that has been around since the early 1980s. It's a boneless pork sandwich that is dipped in a spicy BBQ sauce, topped with shredded onions and dill pickles, and served on a homemade toasted bun. But what is the main ingredient in the McRib?McDonald's claims that the sandwich consists mainly of shoulder meat. However, Chicago Magazine published a story that revealed the truth: the ingredients actually consist of restructured meat products such as heart, calluses, and scalded stomach.

Yikes!In terms of nutritional information, the McRib contains 480 calories, of which 20 come from fat. You'll get 24 grams of protein and 45 grams of carbohydrates. It also contains 890 mg of sodium, 80 mg of cholesterol, and no trans fat. But that's not all - the entire McRib sandwich contains approximately 70 ingredients, including a flour bleaching agent used in yoga mats. If you thought calluses, scalded stomach, and heart sounded bad, wait until you hear about some of the other ingredients.

The sandwich has been featured in an episode of The Simpsons, where it was parodied as the Ribwich and gained cult followers. It's not clear how long the McRib will remain on the menu this time around or if any changes will be made. But one thing is for sure - it's an iconic fast-food item that has been around for decades and will continue to be enjoyed by many.
