    The McRib is a product of "restructured meat technology."

    11 Amazing Facts about the McDonald's McRib - Yahoo! Finance



    3. The McRib is a product of "restructured meat technology."

    Rene Arend came up with the idea and design of the McRib, but it's a professor from the University of Nebraska named Richard Mandigo who developed the "restructured meat product" that the McRib is actually made of.

    According to an article from Chicago magazine, which cites a 1995 article by Mandigo, "restructured meat product" contains a mixture of tripe, heart, and scalded stomach, which is then mixed with salt and water to extract proteins from the muscle. The proteins bind all the pork trimmings together so that it can be re-molded into any specific shape — in this case, a fake slab of ribs.

    4. The whole process from fresh pork to frozen McRib takes about 45 minutes.

    Director of McDonald's U.S. supply chain Rob Cannell explained how regular pig gets transformed into the famed McRib in an interview with Maxim: "The McRib is made in large processing plants—lots of stainless steel, a number of production lines, and these long cryogenic freezers. The pork meat is chopped up, then seasoned, then formed into that shape that looks like a rib back. Then we flash-freeze it. The whole process from fresh pork to frozen McRib takes about 45 minutes."

    5. The entire McRib sandwich contains about 70 ingredients — including a flour-bleaching agent used in yoga mats.

    Flickr/Calgary ReviewsAs it appears out of the box, the McRib sandwich consists of just five basic components: a pork patty, barbecue sauce, pickle slices, onions, and a sesame bun.

    But, as recently reported by Time magazine, a closer inspection of McDonald's own ingredient list reveals that the pork sandwich contains a total of 70 ingredients. This includes azodicarbonamide, a flour-bleaching agent often used in the production of foamed plastics.

    The entire sandwich packs a whopping 500 calories, 26 grams of fat, 44 grams of carbs, and 980 milligrams of sodium.

    Yeah....I will stick with the meat, lightly seasoned, and just carved off of the bone.

    Is anyone actually surprised that it's the pork version of chicken nuggets?

    Permanent item on the menu at McD in Germany btw. Tripe, heart and scalded stomach? Sounds like Saumagen. Or haggis. Except in neither case we chemically break it down first.

    It's an amazing age in which we live that meat byproducts can be shaped into any form we desired then artificially colored and flavored!! I also hear there's this glass ball thing that light comes out of that can be used to warm the meat product as well.
