    oh when did it change? I thought it was still the case:beard:
    I could be wrong but I think the guy who said that was wrong. Mcdonald's fries were actually made freshly in the store daily and friend in real "animal" oil around the 60s. Then it became a big company and they chose to make it from vegetable oil however it contained flaviouring agents that weren't suitable for vegetarians which had changed in the recent few years, sometime just after 2000 I think..

    I could be wrong though it was a while ago I read it and I can't be bothered to check it..

    You're partially right. They did all used to be made from fresh, but then they found it wasn't feasible with the amount the needed, so they bought them in. Now they buy all their fries from massive companies who are destroying the smaller companies who make far better quality fries.
    They were cooked in oil with beef fat in to give them a distinctive flavour that everyone liked, but then they realised that they were really pissing off the vegetarians, so they had to change to vegetable oil, but it took them ages to get the flavour right, which is probably why they use loads of salt.

    Thank you, Eric Schlosser, for teaching me the way of the fries.

    I'll clarify the issue.

    In the UK, fries at McDonalds have been suitable for vegetarians since the early 90's

    If you eat McDonalds in the US, although they did switch to vegetable oil, the fries are flavoured with animal-based flavourings.

    Now, if we're talking about McDonalds, I have curiously noticed that the Spicy Veggie Deli is described as being not suitable for vegetarians on the reverse of the sheets which they put on the trays. Now, does anyone have any gossip on this one?

    possibly because they're sometimes cooked in the same oil as chicken products?

    Or at least that happened when I worked there.
