What are McDonald's buns made of? 

At McDonald’s people often ask us about our burger buns. Rumour has it we use sweeteners in our buns – that’s sort of true, sugar is sweet, but we use less than a teaspoon in each bun. The team at McDonald’s New Zealand aim to put all the rumours about our buns to rest and show that McDonald’s burger buns are made of fresh, quality ingredients and nothing else.



Our buns are made fresh daily at Aryzta’s dedicated bun bakery on Auckland’s North Shore.



We have high standards and our bakers do too, which is why there are multiple quality checks in place at the bakery and only the best looking buns make the cut.



We use less than a teaspoon of sugar in each of the buns which gives them the colour and texture that makes them perfect for burgers.
