WHAT THE #&!% ARE YOU EATING?!?
WHAT ARE THEY?
Injections of water, salt and other additives to ‘enhance’ meat flavors and ‘pump’ it up.
WHAT IS THE PROBLEM?
Enhanced chicken can have 5+ times more salt. Too much salt can increase your risk of:
- High blood pressure
- Kidney malfunctions
WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR?
Read the fine print on nutrition labels: “flavored with up to 10% of a solution”, “up to 15% chicken broth”.
WHAT TO DO?
If you’re concerned… avoid packaged meat.
