McDonald’s chicken nuggets are not healthy or nutritious at all! Furthermore they are addictive causing kids to become victims of obesity. This is the common refrain of the general public even as the kids along with a considerable number of grown ups continue to gorge on McDonald’s chicken nuggets.  Getting to know about the presence of dimethyl polysiloxane or tertiary butylhydroquinone along with a host of other unpronounceable chemical additives in Mc Donald’s chicken nuggets might make you look at the product with apprehension. But is the tasty food completely bereft of nutrients? Let us try to find out what's inside your Chicken Mc Nuggets.


Michael Pollan, the author of ‘Omnivore’s Dilemma’ claims that there is more corn than fowl in McDonald’s chicken nuggets. The statement is not quite true as the corn that the chicken fed on cannot really be counted as maize. However, the image of breaded chicken breast slices being fried in healthy oil is not quite what the McDonald’s chicken nuggets are made of.


Sodium phosphate serves as one of the prominent additives in McDonald’s chicken nuggets which helps to bind the food item together. Canola, corn or soybean oil is used for frying the nuggets usually which also contains certain chemicals. While this does not make McDonald’s chicken nuggets an ideal nutritious food product, there is no reason to panic either especially if you consume the delicious tidbits in moderation.
