12g of protein is pretty bad when you compare that to a bonelesss/skinless chicken breast. Why not just eat those? Much better meat.

I used to eat those all the time. It's 12g of protein in each piece, and they are small. 170 calories each maybe...and I would eat 4 or 5 at a time.

The only thing that concerns me about nuggets is the glue.

BN - you're sure it's not 12g of protein/serving? I don't think there could be 12g loaded into each piece...

IMO it depends on what you're trying to do. Bulking? Sounds good. Cutting? Sounds unstaisfying.

Not nuggets, I meant the tenders since he mentioned those too.

Risks custom chiken nuggets


Wow, its that time again folks! I get to tell you all about reconstitution! What's that you ask, well I'll tell you. :) Reconstitution is a process, where food manufacturers 'recover' losses from the little bits of real food that they also process. An example, a beef boner will be required to trim bones until they are pretty god damn white - and those trimmings are resold as a product known as 65CL/VL (Visual/Chemical Lean).


What about chicken, chicken frames? Just get sold as bones for soup and dogs right? Well it does, but what about if another company buys ALL of the chicken bones? They can mince them into a pet food, double their money - seems resonable. Or they can do this....




Mine large quantity of chicken frames into a pulp, bones are often super soft and mince incredibly easily. Add skin, trace amounts of chicken trimmings, bread crumbs, emulsifiers (Binding agents), Sodium Dioxide (preservative), 621/MSG (flavour enhancer). Mix together and put into moulds that resemble a nugget shape, batter and crumb - pagage and lable!





There you have it guys! And that company that bought all of those chicken frames for about 10c a kilo, can now sell them at about 2.99-5$ per kilo! Wow, and you all wanted to be lawyers!

Take some chicken breasts, dip in egg, then in bread crumbs, bake in oven. Taste better, better for you.
