What Happens To Your Body When You Eat Canned Chicken
When you’re pressed for time and need a quick and easy meal, canned goods seem like a smart alternative. And sometimes, they are. But other times, they come with some risk factors. Such is the case with canned chicken. Though you may believe you’re receiving the same meat from the butcher in a different form, that’s not always the case.
Fresh chicken typically comes out of a farm to a grocery store and straight into your oven. On the other hand, canned chicken is processed and sterilized under high heat to avoid bacteria growth. And as celebrity chef and nutritionist Serena Poon explains, meat processing deters from its texture, flavor, and, most importantly, nutritional value. More often than not, Poon notes, canned chicken brands source their chicken from a factory farm, which can affect the quality and healthfulness of your meal.
