Some industry analysts believe McDonald’s may soon add kale to the menu.
A report from analysts at Janney Capital Markets to clients stated that “McDonald’s U.S. plans to roll out kale as an ingredient in its restaurants at some point in the not-too-distant future,” CNN reports. The fast-food giant plans to incorporate the leafy green in salads, and possibly a smoothie.
A company spokesperson would not confirm the rumors to TIME, only saying: “As we continue to listen to our customers, we’re always looking at new and different ingredients that they may enjoy.”
Steve Easterbrook was appointed CEO of McDonald’s in March, and the company has since rolled out a number of changes that cater to the concerns of health-conscious America. Last week, McDonald’s announced new standards for the chicken offered on its menu, promising that the animals would only be treated with antibiotics for legitimate health reasons. In addition, the low-fat white milk and fat-free chocolate milk “Milk Jug” products, popular Happy Meal items, will be sourced from cows not treated with the controversial growth hormone rbST.
