That was really interesting. I was surprised that they're actually using real food, as opposed to more camera-friendly materials. I always thought that the buns were typically made from foam and painted to look browned, and that ketchup wasn't really ketchup but some type of red gel made to look like ketchup, but is much stiffer so it can sit under the hot lights for hours and not sag.
The law, at least in the US is that any ancillary food can be made from whatever you want but the primary thing being advertised must be made from the ingredients you get at the store. If you're selling ice cream topping, the ice cream can be made from mashed potatoes and if you're selling cereal, the milk can be made from glue but if you're selling a hamburger, you can hand tweezer the sesame seeds and use a syringe to apply the ketchup but they have to be real sesame seeds and real ketchup that you actually use for the burger.

Even back then McDonald's only used the exact ingredients used in their stores, purchased from regular McDonald's suppliers.
