McDonald’s is rolling out a yolk-free version of its Egg McMuffin this spring.
The world’s biggest hamburger chain says the “Egg White Delight” will be made with a whole grain muffin, Canadian bacon and white cheddar cheese. It will be available nationally April 22 and clock in at 250 calories, compared with 300 calories for a regular Egg McMuffin.
The Oak Brook-based chain says the egg whites will be cooked on the grill with a spatula. Customers can request the egg whites for other breakfast sandwiches as well.
The move is intended to address criticism that fast-food chains contribute to rising obesity rates and appeal to customers looking for healthier menu options. AP
