Even if you are just an occasional fast food eater, this will gross you out to the max! This clip from Jamie Oliver’s show is shocking and enlightening! You will never look at a nugget the same again!
If you are in a place where this video can’t be watched (i.e. work) then here’s a short break down…
The kids in the Midwestern town threw a fit because Jamie removed the nuggets from the school menu. To prove a point Oliver sits them down to show them what a chicken nugget is composed of. First he blends all of the part of the chicken that aren’t used including the carcass, tendons, bones and giblets. Next he adds a blended mixture of chicken skin, fat, salt, and flour. They are then formed and deep fried! Who would have thought that a nugget that appeared to be “all white meat” was actually full of left over junk that no one eats!
Sometimes knowing food processing can be scary! Always try to find the source of your food. Think back to the origin.. if it comes from the ground, a tree, or meat that hasn’t changed shape then it’s pretty safe to eat.
