Nothing helps mass-produce bread like ammonium sulfate. Unfortunately, nothing fertilizers soil or kills bugs like it either.

2.) Silicone Oil

Chicken McNuggets are full of dimethylpolysiloxane, a silicone oil that is often used for making contact lenses and other medical items.

3.) Cysteine-L

Fast food restaurants use Cysteine-L, an amino acid synthesized from human hair or duck feathers, to flavor their meat and soften their breads and pastries.

4.) TBHQ

TBHQ can be found in 18 McDonald’s menu items. It’s potentially lethal, but don’t worry, the FDA says it’s generally regarded as safe (GRAS).

5.) Propylene Glycol

Propylene glycol is a chemical compound that can be found in anti-freeze, e-cigarettes, and that’s right! Fast food!

6.) Prescription Drugs

By testing feathers, researchers from Johns Hopkins University found anti-depressants as well as other prescription drugs are added to chicken feed for fast food “poultry” items. Enjoy your drugs second-hand!

7.) Dimethylpolysiloxane

You’ll find Dimethylpolysiloxane in almost any fried fast food menu item, as well as silly putty, contact lenses, caulking, shampoo and conditioners, cosmetics, polishes, heat resistant tiles…

8.) Carminic Acid

Synthesized by Cochineal beetles, Carminic acid is used to dye foods, especially meats, red.

9.) Cellulose

10.) Silicon Dioxide

This industrial sand is used in things like Wendy’s chili to keep it from clumping together. Mmm… industrial sand.
