If you’ve been wondering, what “McNuggets Are Made of?” since watching the pink grounded up goop video a while ago– here’s the answers.
McDonald’s released the video, “Pink goop in Chicken McNuggets? McDonald’s Canada answers”:
Huffington Post Canada noted the following:
Many of the processed chicken and meat products in fast food outlets and grocery stores is “mechanically separated.” The process extracts every last scrap of meat from bones by pushing bits of an animal through a sieve at high pressure.
A recent study from the University of Mississippi Medical Center found that nuggets bought at two fast food chains contained about 50 per cent of what we would regularly call meat. The rest was fat, blood vessels, nerves cartilage and bone.
So, while McDonald’s McNuggets in Canada may be made primarily from chicken breast, that doesn’t mean all nuggets are created equal.
