Are McDonald’s Chicken McNuggets Made From Pink Slime or Real Chicken?

Almost everyone has wondered at one time or another what McDonald’s Chicken McNuggets are actually made from. There has been a lot of speculation that there is either no chicken in them at all, rather they are made from pink slime, or they grind up whole chickens and use everything. Nearly everyone wants to think the worst.

So what’s the truth behind what’s in MacDonald’s Chicken McNuggets?

In this video, Grant Imahara, best known from the hit series MythBusters, takes you through Tyson Foods in Tennessee, one of five facilities in the U.S. that make Chicken McNuggets for McDonald’s, to see the process from beginning to end.

The video touches on the pink slime accusations and Imahara’s description of how people think Chicken McNuggets are made: “People think that you just come to this giant factory, you have a bin of chickens that you just put into a grinder, you grind ’em up and you pour that into a mold, [squeezing noise] and that’s what you use to make a Chicken McNugget.”

Here are some of the highlights from the video behind the process of making Chicken McNuggets:
