- Chicken Nuggets
The rumor that chicken nuggets are made with pink slime is false, but the real process for making them isn’t too much better.
The meat that they are based on is in fact ground chicken breast. But, it only makes up about 50% of the nugget – the rest is ground chicken skin, bone, blood vessels, and connective tissues, plus fat. They also contain some salt, sugar, starch, and “binders and fillers”, whatever they are.
