This is right about Iceland chicken:
Had some chicken legs from Iceland just this week. They were huge, the biggest I have ever seen, and were nearly as big as turkey legs. Sampled it, but I couldn’t eat them. They did not look natural and put me right off. Bigger doesn’t necessarily mean better, it might in size, but not in taste when pumped up !! Clever packaging means you can’t see what you are getting with some food products. Either these chickens are going to the gym 3 times a week, though I have yet to see any in mine, or steroids might have something to do with it.
The fresh fillets don’t seem pumped up and gelled – the dry texture of the meat is still there but the cooked fillets are awful – they have a glazed feel and taste rubbery, not at all like real chicken breast which tends to shred. I simply couldn’t eat the precooked and as for frozen, I never would.
The steak cubes seem Ok.
Either way, it is fraudulent, despite it being on the label, when it is – the precooked had nothing on the label. It’s frankly disgusting – there’s no reason a whole chicken should cost over a fiver in the UK except for profits.
