What's Really In Those Nuggets

Sometimes, you’re better off not knowing what’s in your food. Just the same, a new study looked at the real contents of the average chicken nugget…and the results may take away your appetite. Researchers examined nuggets from unnamed fast food chains in Mississippi and found that they contained only about 50% real chicken breast and thigh meat. So what exactly made up the other half? “An artificial mixture of chicken parts,” including fat, bone, cartilage, blood vessels and nerve cells. Not only does that sound gross, but it also results in a snack that’s super-high in fat, salt and calories. On second thought, maybe you don’t want fries with that. Read more about the report here. So, do you care what chicken nuggets are made of? Do you like to know exactly what goes into your food (or do you prefer NOT knowing)? Drop us an email,
