McDonald's is responding to consumer demand with a variety of recipe changes that make more than 50 percent of its menu more nutritious.

Meals affected will be the Big Macs, Quarter Pounders, as well as a number of sandwiches and all salads on the menu.

Although the recipe changes won't change the taste of McDonald's products significantly, each will be more nutritious in that the company will stop using artificial preservatives, "eliminating chicken treated with certain antibiotics," swapping margarine for butter and "adding red leaf lettuce and carrots to salad mixes." Although the prices for certain items are more expensive for the company, McDonald's is confident that its recipe changes won't cause a loss of profit over time.
