All food and drinks companies in Europe calculate the nutritional values based on an adult: 2000 kcal or 8400 kJ. This is simply an average and the amount of energy you need can vary based on age, sex, and physical exertion. Traditionally, men are considered to have a higher RI than women.
At McDonald's, the nutritional information is mentioned on the packaging. This is sometimes not the case for temporary products.
Additional information about the allergens
This information concerns the 14 main allergenic ingredients listed by the European regulations in effect (with the exception of ingredients provisionally excluded by this regulation). They have been identified through data provided by our suppliers on the composition of their products made from ingredients which have been intentionally used. However, we cannot completely exclude the accidental presence of other allergenic ingredients that may have been introduced during the production of these food products on our suppliers' premises or during their use in a restaurant.
The composition of the products is subject to change. We will do our best to update this section, in particular as soon as we receive information on changes in the composition of any of these products. We therefore suggest that you check this section on a regular basis. We recommend that you show the information in this section to your attending physician or allergist so that he or she may provide you with advice for your food plan.
