Chicken nuggets, are they good for you?

White boneless chicken, water, food starch-modified, salt, seasoning (autolyzed yeast extract, salt, wheat starch, natural flavoring (botanical source), safflower oil, dextrose, citric acid, rosemary), sodium phosphates, seasoning (canola oil, mono- and diglycerides, extractives of rosemary). Battered and breaded with: water, enriched flour (bleached wheat flour, niacin, reduced iron, thiamin mononitrate, riboflavin, folic acid), yellow corn flour, food starch-modified, salt, leavening (baking soda, sodium acid pyrophosphate, sodium aluminum phosphate, monocalcium phosphate, calcium lactate), spices, wheat starch, whey, corn starch. Prepared in vegetable oil (Canola oil, corn oil, soybean oil, hydrogenated soybean oil with TBHQ and citric acid added to preserve freshness). Dimethylpolysiloxane added as an antifoaming agent.

Frying chicken is fairly simple, if a little messy. You dip pieces of chicken into a mix of egg and milk, roll them around in flour and spices, then cook the chicken in sizzling hot oil until the pieces are brown, crispy and delicious.

But wait! Don’t forget to add a dash of dimethylpolysiloxane, an anti-foaming agent made of silicone that is also used in Silly Putty and cosmetics.

Now add a heaping spoonful of tertiary butylhydroquinone (TBHQ), which is a chemical preservative and a form of butane (AKA lighter fluid). One gram of TBHQ can cause “nausea, vomiting, ringing in the ears, delirium, a sense of suffocation, and collapse," according to A Consumer’s Dictionary of Food Additives. Five grams of TBHQ can kill you.

Sprinkle on thirteen other corn-derived ingredients, and you're only about twenty shy as many ingredients as a single chicken nugget from McDonald’s. And you were using pulverized chicken skin and mechanically reclaimed meat for your chicken, right?

No one in his or her right mind would cook chicken like this. Yet every day, hoards of Americans consume these ingredients in Chicken McNuggets, which McDonalds claims are “made with white meat, wrapped up in a crisp tempura batter.”

This will definitely shock the 2 or 3 people across the country who thought McD's was the place to go for a healthy meal.

Don't light it or inhale - you'll be fine.

I wonder if they thought that puking and dizziness after ingesting McDonalds food was a perfectly natural reaction to food in general.

Makes me hungry for some chicken strips :)

Can't remember the last time I had chicken nuggets...

But who EVER thought they were good for you? :137:

Homemade strips/nuggets are good ... marinate in buttermilk, coat with seasoned panko bread crumbs and bake or deep fry.
Dance as if no one's watching, sing as if no one's listening, and live everyday as if it were your last.

Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain.

You know, that actually happened to me once many years ago - ironically, after eating 20 mcnuggets. Even went blind for about 10 seconds. No joke.

Haven't had McD's since.

It amazes me how the people will eat anything, as long as it tastes good.

While I agree that McD's isn't in any way shape or form healthy, this article is so stupid I can't take it even the slightest bit seriously.

Fast food everything from Subway to McD's and all points in between are either so full of sodium or heavily laced with sugar.
Eating this crap even close to regular bases your on fast track to both type 2 diabetes & hypertension aka high blood pressure.

So junk food is just that junk.
When you have to start compromising yourself and your morals for the people around you, it’s probably time to change the people around you. Do what makes you happy, and do it a little better every day… and don’t forget to breath! Please ☞ ♻︎
