Meat is made up of tiny fiber like strands. You would expect to see fibrous looking things when looking at meat under a microscope.

The chicken nugget fibers (that are not obviously muscle fibers) are probably mostly environment fibers that got in it after it was ripped open. But you can't rule out there being a bit of airborne dust getting into it during the manufacturing process. It's not exactly the highest quality stuff in the world.

But it's just dust. People are not used to looking at dust through a microscope. It looks like lots of really small fibers.

i'll have a read. any opinions on the chicken nugget video would be great though
Well, it's from Mike Adams so there ya go. Things do look strange under magnification to most people who have little or no experience with viewing the fine details at a microscopic level. Of course, that's what Mike Adams is counting on so he can sell more product.

All that's necessary to explain the images in that video are understanding some basic facts; Fibrous tissue is the most common connective tissue in animals and processed foods commonly contain insect parts, rodent hairs, rodent feces and a bunch of other stuff. Knowing that, it's not surprising to see fibers and little dark specks in a chicken mcnugget under magnification.

Anything grown outside in the dirt is going to have a certain amount of contamination, even from a home garden it's pretty much unavoidable.

I strongly suspect that if you were to take a steak from even the cleanest looking meat counter, you'd be able to find fibers on it if you looked close enough.


If it's open to the air, and slightly damp, then it will get dust on it. But it's no different to what you breath in every day.

My microbiology class had a field trip to the local FDA lab. We got to see them looking for 'contaminants' in food. When we hear 'bug parts' we see entire heads or legs. When the lab looks, they are seeing extremely tiny, microscopic parts of an insect. A single weevil, that gets ground up in a flour mill will yield hundreds of parts. A tiny piece of a leg, even the 'hairs' on an insect leg.

The average person doesn't really understand what all is in the air and such. Our clothes shed fine fibers all the time, not just in the dryer.

This video is interesting, but there is nothing alien-like in the sample examined. What appears to be omitted by the maker of the video is the fact that Chicken nuggets are made of pieces of chicken (mostly from the breast) which are then dipped into batter and deep fried. The outer crust he zoomed on is nothing but fried-on batter. The colour is consistent with the colour of fried batter, the orange-like colour could be food substance from other items fried in the same deep fryers. The gelatinous-like transparent parts are stabilisers and fats arising from residues of mixtures of frying oil and the batter base. The foreign fibres do appear like atmospheric impurities as have been effectively dealt with by other posters. The inner part is the chicken and I see nothing strange in the chicken apart from the fact that it may not be of the best quality.

Doing some biochemical or microbial or food chemistry test on the sample is more scientific, but then that'll probably not have found anything wrong with the food. But then he would have to predetermine what he is potentially hoping to find and testing for that. What he's done here is purely an organoletic test which depends on the senses of sight, smell, taste and feel and which has its brilliant use in physical quality assurance work but completely inappropriate in analytical or food chemistry use.

Things look very different close up, so it's easy to be surprised by what you see.

It just took this photo of a raspberry.


Not only does it have these weird yellow "antenna" poking out, but the surface is covered by tiny translucent fibers. Invisible to the naked eye.

The microscopic world is strange.

Now the photos they have shown you may look unappetizing, but of course they aren't showing any magnified pictures of other common foods, because I'm sure that they look just as un appetizing.

Here is another video showing what McNuggets are made from. A quick overview: Same stuff hotdogs are made from. :eek:

I honestly don't know what issue is with MSM. It is usually done with water under pressure. It us using as much of the animal as possible. It I have a carcass it would get booked down for soup or stock and I end up pulling the meat off by hand. Just the same thing.

There are dog/cat food companies that use the, our product doesn't contain or doesn't use as much "byproduct meal" in their brands. I find this a bit funny since if a cat or dog say killed a chicken, they would probably eat the byproducts.

Years ago I had a kennel of show/obedience/field Irish Setters. I allowed the sharp talking of a 'new' (to the general market) dog food company convince me that I needed to switch to their premium food that did not have by products in it. It also reduced the feces, which is a big plus when one has a lot of large dogs. The food was a lot more expensive, but it seemed that with reduced amounts needed and such that the price difference was not that bad. So I switched and I proclaimed the 'benefits' of the food to others, even wrote about it in our club newsletter and I had a representative come to a meeting to tout it. A lot of folks switched.

The dogs seemed to do well on it, but after a while, some new behaviors started. First they all seemed to develop a taste for Kleenex, TT and paper towels, used and clean. Then I noticed them starting to eat leaves, grass and even the bedding hay/straw I used in the outdoor houses. All this eating of non edible items started to cause some major digestive issues. After more research, it seemed the problem was a lack of FIBER in their food. A predator's digestive system is designed to handle skin and hair, feathers and such. The expensive food was missing in these. I was considering buying and adding 'wheat shorts' to their diet, when the light bulb came on and instead I switched back to a less pricy brand. I still avoided some things, like soybean meal, because of the possibility that it could be a cause of gastric torsion bloat, a killer in Irish Setters. The change in food, stopped the worse of the 'pica' in my dogs.

I learned a good lesson in this however. What sounds good, may not be good. Look deeper
 
Hey this is all cool info but I take exception to one point. MSM and the video of pink slime is NOT used by McDonalds to make chicken nuggets. Chicken Nuggets at Mc DONALDS are in fact made with 100% White Meat chicken. The video with the microscope is unfortunately crap and not science its like a 5th grader took his lunch and put it under a scope these people have NO understanding or experience in a LAB that studies food. I would gladly have enjoyed REAL SCIENCE to make a neat study about foods we eat but as has been mentioned before Microscopic stuff does end up in food and most of it is completely harmless and digested whether its bug parts or human hairs or bits of clothing. Not a big deal these boobs take food and go OHHHHH WHATS THIS WHAT COULD IT BE??? ITS ALIEN FOOD ITS CONTAMINATED! And its crap its not worth your time they make no real scientific study. Ever look at your own skin with a magnifying glass? Same thing lol whats that brown spot? Oh its dirt wash your hands already LOL BUT McDonalds chicken is made with 100% white meat the good stuff and processed.

FURTHER no BEEF is used and consumed in Hot DOGs or Beef products in the US since 2004 thanks to Mad Cow Disease. Due to FSIS regulations enacted in 2004 to protect consumers against Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy, mechanically separated beef is considered inedible and is prohibited for use as human food. It is not permitted in hot dogs or any other processed product.

In February 2012, fast food chains McDonald's, Taco Bell, and Burger King announced they would stop using BLBT in their food products. In March 2012, the grocery chains Kroger, Safeway, Supervalu, Bi-Lo, and Winn-Dixie announced they would stop buying BLBT products.

Our food is pretty safe now lol.

Even under sterile conditions we find fibers in our cultures. This is a picture of Pseudomonas bacteria with a visible fiber (the black dots are just part of the filter paper). Fibers are ubiquitous, this one likely came from my clothes.

It's the microscope problem.

So you can take a chicken slice, dice, cube, grind, quarter, half or even whole and fry, bake, boil, grill ,saute, bbq or stir-fry and it comes out white. But puree it, form it into a nugget and cook it in a fast food restaurant and all of a sudden you have to add chemicals/preservatives to make it turn white? o_O

McDonald's put up a video on this.
