Since when does chicken contain sucrose, glucose, maltodextrine, additives, so on, so on.

They are fine generally speaking, but I would treat them as more of a rarity than a staple BBing food. You would be better off preparing your own chicken.

i know but at the moment i just started uni and that is way too time consuming. But put it like this. If i eat them within my calorie allowance will it affect my cut.

Generally speaking mate, they are fine. Very few people's diet will be 100% clean 100% of them time. Good luck with the cut!

For convenience, I dont see how you can beat it. The couple carbs from the bit of sugar they put in, will NOT make or break anyone. Enjoy the food and move on.

They look fine bro, not everyone works 9-5 and has all night to prepare food. Time is important.

you really 5g of maltodextrin is going to make or break your diet? It's probably a seasoning, btw

Like spikey said, if you think a little suger is gonna make a big difference I suggest you not look at the nutritional labels of ANYTHING you eat.
