The company just announced that a majority of their burger's are now free of preservatives.

As of Wednesday, the world's largest burger chain the changes have been applied to their: hamburger, cheeseburger, double cheeseburger, McDouble, Quarter Pounder with Cheese, double Quarter Pound with Cheese and Big Mac.

McDonald's quietly removed artificial preservatives and flavors from all of its classic burgers.

"We've been on a journey to remove artificial colours, flavours and preservatives from some of our ingredients, all while continuing to deliver great tasting food people trust", says a statement from McDonald's Canada. According to the company, almost two-thirds of all burgers and sandwiches have cut artificial ingredients (as long as customers hold the pickle, which has yet to make the change).

Fast food may have become slightly healthier this week.

McDonald's rolled out its $1 $2 $3 menu in early 2018, in an effort to provide a consistent value platform that the chain lost with the death of the iconic Dollar Menu.

The rejection of the artificial ingredients and natural replacement will reduce the shelf life of products or require additional freeze, warned the company.

In March, the McD's started using fresh beef in select burgers (we tried it, and the results were surprising), which follows other steps at improving the food standards and fast-food image of the chain, like committing to using cage-free eggs, which it announced back in 2016.

Recently, McDonald's has been going towards a more health conscious route.

"The one-third of the menu not covered includes the Egg McMuffin, Bacon, Egg & Cheese Biscuit, the Bacon, Egg & Cheese McGriddles, the Filet-O-Fish and several of the Signature Crafted sandwiches", reports Nancy Luna for Nation's Restaurant News.

Even the company's Apple Pies were given a recent makeover. Meaning customers have a much wider range of choice when it comes to choosing their food when visiting the chain.
