Propylene glycol isn't an ingredient in our Chicken McNuggets, Nick, however you'll see in our Nutrition Centre that many of our sauces use this ingredient. Propylene glycol alginate is an additive used mainly as a thickening agent in certain types of food. It is made from the kelp plant or from certain kinds of algae. This ingredient can be added to foods that require thickening. It has also been used for many years as a food preservative or to protect colour. Most types of gel-like foods, including yogurt, jellies and jams, ice cream, and salad dressing contain propylene glycol alginate.
