Do you put dimethylpolysiloxane
, an anti-foaming agent made of silicone, in your chicken dishes?
How about tertiary butylhydroquinone (TBHQ), a chemical preservative so deadly that just five grams can kill you?
These are just two of the ingredients in a McDonalds Chicken
McNugget. Only 50 percent of a McNugget is actually chicken. The other
50 percent includes corn derivatives, sugars, leavening agents and
completely synthetic ingredients.
Organic Authority helpfully transcribed the full ingredients list provided by McDonalds:
"White boneless chicken, water, food starch-modified, salt,
seasoning (autolyzed yeast extract, salt, wheat starch, natural
flavoring (botanical source), safflower oil, dextrose, citric acid,
rosemary), sodium phosphates, seasoning (canola oil, mono- and
diglycerides, extractives of rosemary).
Battered and breaded with: water, enriched flour (bleached wheat
flour, niacin, reduced iron, thiamin mononitrate, riboflavin, folic
acid), yellow corn flour, food starch-modified, salt, leavening (baking
soda, sodium acid pyrophosphate, sodium aluminum phosphate, monocalcium
phosphate, calcium lactate), spices, wheat starch, whey, corn starch.
