Chicken Nuggets Anyone?
This showed up on The Healthy Home Economist and Fooducate this week. Since I know a lot of people don't follow those, I thought I would pass it along. Guess what this is?
Mechanically separated chicken. After chickens have been processed, the bones are passed through a high-pressure sieve, stripping every possible scrap off of them. What you get is a foul, bacteria laden and nasty tasting paste that is soaked in ammonia to kill off the germs and then mixed with artificial colors and flavors to make it palatable. It then becomes things like bologna, hot dogs and chicken nuggets...
Anyone else wonder how different our schools would be if we were feeding school children real, responsibly raised and butchered meat instead of a chemically cocktailed meat paste every day? Ugh.
