No thank you: Strawberry Shake from McDonald’s McCafe
McDonald’s Strawberry McCafe Shake, 12oz size has 90 grams of carbs.
This is not a surprise when we see the long list of sugar ingredients (sugar, corn syrup, high fructose corn syrup)
Probably the corn syrup and high fructose corn syrup are derived from GMO corn.
The other problem ingredients:
- Artificial and natural flavor (MSG)
- Citric Acid (read where this comes from, not lemons!)
- Caramel Color
- Red 40
- Mono and Diglycerides (Trans fats)
- Polysorbate 80
