What's in a McDonald's McNugget? Chicken is just half of it

What's in a McDonald's Chicken McNugget? Only about half is chicken - the rest is made up of taste enhancers and preservatives such an anti-foaming agent, and a chemical used in lighter fluid.
Even the chicken parts come from pulverized chicken skin and mechanically reclaimed meat, says consumer action group Organic Authority.
The group has dissected McDonald's recipe for its Chicken McNuggets to discover that ingredients include dimethylpolysiloxane, a silicone-based, anti-foaming agent used in Silly Putty, and TBHQ (tertiary butylhydroquinone), a form of butane found in lighter fuel.
The new recipe is supposed to be healthier and improved after a judge had described McNuggets as "a McFrankenstein creation of various elements not utilized by the home cook".
Of course, McDonald's sins are no worse than those of most fast and processed food manufacturers, who use the same preservatives and 'enhancers'.
