Watch How McDonald's Makes French Fries in Canada

Hoping to prove to skeptical Canadians once and for all that its french fries do indeed come from real potatoes, McDonald's Canada has unleashed a video with "a behind-the-scene tour from the farm all the way to the fryer." This is the latest in a series of videos that make up the chain's new transparency campaign in which it promises its burgers are all beef, its egg McMuffins use real eggs and more.

In the video, supply chain manager Scott Gibson leads a tour from the farm as the potatoes are harvested and sorted, to the processing plant, where Gibson explains that the fries are "cut and they're never formed." Finally, the fries hit McDonald's stores, where Gibson uses a demonstration to answer the question: "Why is there soooooo much salt on the fries?"
