    Jamie Oliver...

    Chicken Nugget Experiment

    A few years ago, during Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution series, he decided to make chicken nuggets for a group of American kids. He thought that if they saw what went into chicken nuggets, they would change their food choices. He was wrong.

    As Oliver threw chicken parts, breast meat, feet, and skin along with salt, unnamed filler, and pink-colored binders into a grinder, the kids scrunched up their faces. They murmured, “yuck” and “oh” in unison. They looked disgusted and nearly nauseous.

    When Oliver fried up the nuggets into bite-sized bits. He asked the children if they wanted to try one of them. Every single one of the kids threw up a hand and said, “Yes!” we are hungry, only moments before what had disgusted them, now were appetizing to them.

    Chicken NuggetOliver’s nugget experiment failed because children are raised on hyper-industrial food, and cooking in the microwave, the children couldn’t imagine, and didn’t imagine, a connection between what they ate, where it came from, and how it was manipulated into what sat on their plates.

    It is perhaps one of the more troubling things about our current food system and why this system is so intractable. It has turned so many of us into what Wendell Berry has called “industrial eaters,” people who do not know that eating is an “agricultural act.” As a result, we no longer know about or imagine the connections between eating and the land, between food and processing.

    This disconnect explains why we eat passively and uncritically. The kids in Jamies’s experiment don’t really expect food to have any relation to its preparation and where it came from in the first place.

    Jamie Oliver Campaign makes McDonald’s change recipe

    Chef Jamie Oliver won a battle against one of the largest fast food chains in the world. After Oliver showed how McDonald’s hamburgers are made, the franchise announced it will change its recipe.

    According to Oliver, the fatty parts of beef are “washed” in ammonium hydroxide and used in the filling of the burger. Before this process, according to the presenter, the food is deemed unfit for human consumption.

    According to the chef and presenter, Jamie Oliver, who has undertaken a war against the fast food industry: “Basically, we’re taking a product that would be sold in the cheapest way for dogs, and after this process, is being given to human beings.”

    Besides the low quality of the meat, the ammonium hydroxide is harmful to health. Oliver calls it “the pink slime process.”

    “Why would any sensible human being put meat filled with ammonia in the mouths of their children?” asked the chef, who wages a war against the fast food industry.

    In one of his initiatives, Oliver demonstrates to children how nuggets are made ». After selecting the best parts of the chicken, the remains (fat, skin and internal organs) are processed for these fried foods.

    The company, Arcos Dorados, the franchise manager in Latin America, said such a procedure is not practiced in the region. The same applies to the product in Ireland and the UK, where they use meat from local suppliers.

    In the United States, Burger King and Taco Bell had already abandoned the use of ammonia in their products. The food industry uses ammonium hydroxide as an anti-microbial agent in meats, which has allowed McDonald’s to use otherwise “inedible meat.”

    Even more disturbing is that because ammonium hydroxide is considered part of the “component in a production procedure” by the USDA, consumers may not know when the chemical is in their food.

    On the official website of McDonald’s, the company claims that their meat is cheap because, while serving many people every day, they are able to buy from their suppliers at a lower price, and offer the best quality products.

    In addition, the franchise denied that the decision to change the recipe is related to Jamie Oliver’s campaign. On the site, McDonald’s has admitted that they have abandoned the beef filler from its burger patties.

    You know what all natural organic meat contains? Blood. Poop. Bacteria.

    I wouldn't be excited about eating that either, but that's why we cook the shit.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    Here in Canada lately, we've had more recalls on E-coli/Salmonella tainted salads and veggies than meats. The last ones I remember were spinach and pre-made salads.

    Well, the last veg-related 'issue' we had was in 2011, with beansprouts. They were grown from seeds imported from Germany, which turned out to be infected with Salmonella (the beansprout seeds, not the Germans... )

    They haven't forgiven us for winning the war, you see...

    Everything is going to kill you eventually. No one gets out of here alive.



    And I what I mean by that is: if you want to be vegetarian, do it. If you want to go the other extreme and eat garbage, do that too. Personal freedom is limited by so many things that the one you can control is your nutrition intake. Do whatever makes your heart sing.
