What lovely, lovely chicken nuggets are made from
You might want to look away if you’re a fan of chicken nuggets because THIS is what they’re made from. Probably too late now – it’s staring you in the face.
This pink stuff is mechanically separated chicken and is what your fast food chicken is made from. We’ll let blogger Michael Kindt take up the story.
Basically, the entire chicken is smashed and pressed through a sieve—bones, eyes, guts, and all. it comes out looking like this. There’s more: because it’s crawling with bacteria, it will be washed with ammonia, soaked in it, actually. Then, because it tastes gross, it will be re-flavoured artificially. Then, because it is weirdly pink, it will be dyed with artificial colour.
