Your average processed chicken

Looks like ice-cream - a 99 will never be the same.

This was shared with me on facebook, so I’m sharing it here. (Credit to Deb Mahan – http://www.facebook.com/fitfarmgirl)

This is mechanically separated chicken, though their isn’t much that is separated about it. It’s more like mechanically conglomerated chicken. It’s what chicken nuggets and other processed chicken products are made from.

“The entire chicken is smashed and pressed through a sieve — bones, eyes, guts, and all. It comes out looking like this.”

Because it is covered in bacteria it will be soaked in ammonia to kill everything, but then will taste disgusting  and so will be artificially flavoured and because it looks so weird they’ll add artificial colour

I avoid this stuff anyway,  but now I can point to why it is a good idea.
