In case you were wondering what's in those spicy chicken nuggets...
Unlike Chick-fil-A, you won't find MSG, but you'll still be eating this:
❌ NATURAL FLAVORS: Practically the exact same thing as Artificial Flavor, but it’s derived from substances found in nature (plants, animals, etc). And, this isn’t all it contains. Flavors typically contain preservatives, emulsifiers, solvents and other “incidental additives”, which can make up 80% or so of the formulation. Some of the most common incidental additives in flavors include: sodium benzoate, glycerin, potassium sorbate, and propylene glycol (none of which are labeled).
❌ DIMETHYLSILOXANE: Commonly used as a filler fluid in breast implants, however this substance has started to be phased out due to safety concerns. If this substance is considered to be a hazardous ingredient when it’s placed inside our bodies, doesn't it make you wonder why the FDA says we can eat it
❌ SOYBEAN OIL: This unhealthy oil is too high in omega-6 fatty acids and increases the risk of obesity, inflammation, cardiovascular disease, cancer, and autoimmune diseases.
❌ SODIUM PHOSPHATE: When you eat phosphate additives often, it can lead to excessive levels of phosphate in the blood and puts you at risk of chronic kidney disease, increased mortality, heart disease, and accelerated aging. The EWG warns that sodium phosphate is a top additive to avoid.
