I ran across this article about Wendy's new natural cut fry's  We dont eat fast food often, but gosh! I may never eat fast food again. Silicone based chemicals added to the fry oil? EWWW The added sugar I knew but not about the oil.

  • "ya'll can sit around and freak out and worry about stupid stuff like this and avoid everything or you can just live your life"

    When you can make simple changes for the better, then why not? Go ahead and suffer the side effects of consuming silicone, clorox, and other nasty non-edible things. That's your choice.

  • Something else that you may not know. Baby cut carrots are preserved with clorox to keep them from turning brown.

  • That explains why Wendy's is suddenly making my husband sick (we don't eat there often), it didn't happen until the new fries and other ingredients. He has a few food allergies, like soy and other preservatives... guess we wont be eating there again.
    Same thing happened a few years back when the fast food changed the oil they used to fry their stuff.

  • I had heard at some point but never confirmed it that the soft serve at McDonald's also had a form of silicone. I'll have to see what I can find.
