    Many years ago, I was involved in a private study of Cooking oils (Olein) used for frying chicken in a fast food chain... surprisingly, the levels of Mono unsaturated fats increased due to Chicken fats. Therefore, there might be some benefits in Chicken fat ?

    they didnt hear the keyword the kids say, "Its Free what!" they should tell the kids how much those nuggets will cost if handmade vs the store sold ones. and if the kids were to make a purchase decision based on the price and taste they would not choose the "healthier and costlier" one

    One day we will have a vege nugget that taste like chicken. Scientists already working on replacement using vege while having the same textures and taste, likewise nutrients. Of course, it can never fully replace meat, specifically dishes that is made from whole meat instead of minced meat. Still, replacing most of the meats will significantly reduce the carbon footprint.

    The answer from the 'food influencer' seems like it came out from a textbook. Complicated and far from truth. Lot's of people eat chicken nuggets because it seems a simple food. Literally a chicken, mixed with some herbs, then made to be a nugget and fried. That's it. Nuggets are simple.

    <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="655">10:55</a> A little extra bit of info for locals. How is it that when you order chicken rice, the drumstick and thigh meat cost so much more than the breast meat whereas in this documentary, it is said that the chicken leg and thigh meat is cheaper compared to breast meat. Simple, the meat they used are frozen imported meat from western countries where breast meat is favored more than the leg meat, hence the less desirable dark meat is exported out to asian countries where it is more desired. A win-win situation. The same goes to salmon skin. It is a by-product which used to be of little use in western countries when they process the fish into fillets. Here in Asia or at least in Singapore, we find a use for it as in crispy fish skin snacks. It is sold at a premium because it is perceived as protein based rather than simple carbs. So people think there is a limited amount you can get with each fish processed. Just google alibaba for example for a sense of reality. Here's an example : www.alibaba.com/product-detail/FROZEN-SALMON-SKIN_60759666674.html?spm=a2700.7724857.normalList.2.741e5e2cQAoWSg Max about $1.50/kg or $0.15/100gms... So how much are brands like Irvin's selling for their 105gms packet?

    Singaporeans should not shortchange themselves and wakeup , slap themselves hard and learn to question and demand for hygiene, food standards etc. Or are they too poor to afford first world standard despite the self praising? Successful people do not self praise. They let others praise them without paying them

    Frequent self-praising does not escape from the fact that Singaporeans est mostly imported and processed foods. Is this first world standard? Fresh? Are the food qualities within sg control if ts not being controlled by sg? Or let's continue to be complacent until someone spoonfeeds us?
