McDonald's Breaks Down The McNugget

 Are Chicken McNuggets Real Chicken



The food industry absorbs a lot of disinformation on many of its products which i find annoying because there is plenty of red flags out there without every fool promoting pure nonsense.  We really do not need the help.  What we have here is reassurance that chicken Mcnuggets are formed strictly from white meat and using a coarse chop to maintain texture.  It really is a good product and that really is not the issue.
The issue i have is the poor living conditions experienced by factory raised birds when it happens to be rather unnecessary. The diet is not augmented and we have inferior meat using protocols that beg plenty of questions.  I would really like to have superior meat used and it is not impossible either.

The truth is that every square mile of farm land is improved by the managemnt of a flock of pastured birds who are tasked with processing the soils.  It would not even take land out of cultivation.  It would put land back into cultivation faster.

Set up properly we can have a chicken surplus and no factory farms at all.

McDonald's Breaks Down The McNugget

McDonald’s is really getting sensitive to accusations the quality of its food because it’s just put out its second video in recent weeks explaining to us how its meat-based food products are actually made from real meat. This time, McDonald’s takes us on a tour of a Tyson plant in Tennessee to reveal the magic behind its famous deep-fried meat globules.

“We’ve been asking consumers for their questions about McDonald’s food,” explains the McDonald’s tour guide at the start of the video. “And the No. 1 category, by far [is] Chicken McNuggets, specifically what’s in the Chicken McNuggets.”

McDonald’s goes on to explain that its chicken nuggets contain no “pink slime,” which is a nickname for the meat-based goo that has been banned for human consumption by the European Union. McDonald’s also wants to make sure you know that there are no beaks or feet in its nuggets and that the meat only comes from the chicken breasts, thighs and other parts of the chicken that people normally eat.

The video also interviews a chicken nugget quality control tester who eats McDonald’s nuggets at least once an hour and who is still somehow alive.

Watch the full video above, although whether it will make you feel better about eating McNuggets is open for debate.
