5Cats, unless you want to eat black french fries the blanching process is necessary before the potato is frozen to prevent oxidization.
But by all means child, continue to criticize something you know nothing about.

"They seem to have missed the bit where they add the damp cardboard flavouring."
That was 2:10 to 2:38...

Carbohydrates are the redheaded stepchildren of the food world.

The "blanching process" is relatively new: It removes many of the spots and discolourations which are natural in potatoes. It also removes large amounts of the nutrition...
They add a coating because without those nutrients the "fry" falls to pieces. It needs the coating to preserve it`s shape.

Evil! Fast food is evil.

You can have all the great ingredients you want, if you can`t teach a retarded teenager how to cook the fries or clean the oil on a regular basis, they`ll still turn out crappy.

I like their fries. They are magical. I watched the debating video before this, but I still can`t put myself in those devil worshipers position and try to argue against McDonalds fries.

My apologies to all the devil worshipers. That was unfair. I am sure some of you like fries.

@An-egg There`s no natural beef flavour in the French Fries from McDonald`s here in Canada. McDonald`s ingredient list:

Pg. 13
French Fries: Potatoes, canola oil, hydrogenated soybean oil, safflower oil, natural flavour (vegetable source),
dextrose, sodium acid pyrophosphate (maintain colour), citric acid (preservative), dimethylpolysiloxane (antifoaming
agent) and cooked in vegetable oil (Canola oil, corn oil, soybean oil, hydrogenated soybean oil with THBQ, citric
acid and dimethylpolysiloxane).

in the uk they have to adhere to european food labelling laws, so their 100% vegetable oil IS 100% vegetable oil.

The fries are the only thing I`ll get at McDonalds anymore. And even that`s rare. The food for the most part tastes stranger than what I was served in high school.

@tedgp you have to be careful, McDonalds does different things in different countries. It is quite possible that they use this amount in Canada.

But this is what they`re calling 100% vegetable oil:
vegetable oil (canola oil, hydrogenated soybean oil, natural beef flavor [wheat and milk derivatives]*, citric acid [preservative]), dextrose, sodium acid pyrophosphate (maintain color), salt. Prepared in vegetable oil (Canola oil, corn oil, soybean oil, hydrogenated soybean oil with TBHQ and citric acid added to preserve freshness). Dimethylpolysiloxane added as an antifoaming agent.
CONTAINS: WHEAT AND MILK.
*(Natural beef flavor contains hydrolyzed wheat and hydrolyzed milk as starting ingredients).

Obviously they didn`t want to hurt our little minds with all that so they used 100% vegetable oil instead.

Data From McDonalds USA but Canada is the same (I looked) but can`t be cut and pasted.
