Original title: Which parts of chicken are not suitable for consumption
Chicken is the most familiar food in our daily life. Many fast food restaurants and barbecue restaurants specialize in chicken. Chicken is highly praised for its tender meat and delicious taste. Every part of chicken is cooked into various delicious dishes and appears on people's tables. However, many parts of the chicken have greater safety risks, and the amount of food should be reduced or not even eaten. Here are some parts of the chicken that are not suitable for human consumption.
First, chicken neck
There is very little meat in this area, but the blood vessels and lymph glands are relatively concentrated. Occasionally, it is no problem to eat some carbuncle. It is best to remove the skin when eating, because some detox glands such as lymph are concentrated in the subcutaneous fat of the neck. These glands include toxins in animals and hormones in feed.
Second, chicken skin
Chicken skin, although delicious, is not good for your health . Generally, chicken skin has more fat, higher cholesterol, and higher levels of contaminants in chicken skin. Especially roasted chicken, after roasting, the cholesterol in chicken skin is oxidized to form cholesterol oxidation products, causing great harm to the human body. Carcinogens may also be produced if temperature is not controlled properly. Therefore, it is best to remove chicken skin when eating chicken, not to mention using chicken skin for cooking.
Three, chicken tip
Also known as "chicken buttocks" and "chicken buttock tips", it refers to the long tail feathers on the upper end of chicken buttocks, and the meat is tender and tender. This part is where the lymph glands are concentrated. The macrophages in the lymph glands can swallow germs and viruses, and even carcinogens, but they can't break down, so the toxins will be deposited in the tip of the buttocks. Over time, the chicken tip became a large warehouse for storing viruses and germs.
In addition, some internal organs of chickens will have toxic residues, but the amount will vary depending on the breeding conditions. The alveoli of chickens can accommodate various bacteria in human chickens. After the chickens are slaughtered, pathogens, especially thermophiles, will still remain in the lungs. They cannot be completely killed even when heated. Eating may pose a threat to human health; stomach Dirty (胗) is responsible for storing and grinding food, so harmful substances may remain here;
Most of the harmful substances in chickens are focused on liver metabolism and detoxification; the kidneys are related to the excretion of harmful substances; the heart is not related to the metabolism of harmful substances. Therefore, although chicken gizzards, chicken liver and chicken kidney have high nutritional value and are delicious, for the sake of their own health, they should reduce the frequency and consumption of food. For chicken hearts, it is safer and can be eaten in moderation.
Experts suggest that the injection site is mostly in the wings, and the wing tip is the easiest to deposit hormones. Mr. Zhang, a professional veterinarian, told reporters that there are many kinds of drugs injected into chickens and other birds. Most of them are subcutaneous injections and intravenous injections in the wings of birds. Subcutaneous injection generally involves injecting the drug into loose connective tissue under the skin of the chicken's neck or wings, which is then absorbed by the capillaries. Intravenous injection is relatively large, and the drug can directly enter the blood circulation.
According to reports, because hormones can make chickens grow quickly, it is common to inject chickens with hormones, and the wing tip is the easiest to deposit hormones. Mr. Zhang said, "Generally speaking, injecting drugs will produce certain drug residues, most of which will be in the blood and subcutaneous tissue.
