The potatoes used to make McDonald’s fries…?



McDonald’s choice of potatoes


McDonald’s, a major hamburger chain, is very popular not only for its hamburgers such as the Cheeseburger and Big Mac, but also for its side dish, French fries.


The fries are so exquisitely fried and salty that some people go to McDonald’s not for the burgers but for the fries. In the past, nutritionists have explained why people can’t stop eating McDonald’s fries, but there are other reasons why McDonald’s is so particular about its fries.


That is, McDonald’s carefully selects four kinds of potatoes for their fries!

According to McDonald’s USA, the four types are Russet Burbank, Russet Ranger, Umatilla Russet, and Shepody fries.

However, a previous video released by McDonald’s Canada showed the potatoes being washed, peeled, and shredded by a machine, according to Eat This, Not That. In other words, the shape of McDonald’s fries is the way they are cut in the factory.


There are many reasons why McDonald’s fries are so good.


McDonald’s potatoes are grown by Bill Gates.

The potatoes used by McDonald’s come as a surprise to some.


According to an investigation by NBC, the potatoes used in the fries are grown in a field owned by Bill Gates, co-founder of Microsoft and a wealthy man, in Washington State, USA.


Mr. Gates owns 269,000 acres of farmland in 18 states, which is larger than the total area of New York City, making him the largest private owner of farmland in the United States.


Although this does not directly affect the taste of McDonald’s fries, it is another surprise that is not known.
