The Toxic Ingredients in KFC Foods

Kentucky Fried Chicken is one of the fast food industry’s largest users of MSG. This taste-exciting chemical (excitotoxin) is found in so many of KFCs products that it’s nearly impossible to eat a typical meal at KFC without ingesting it.

Fried chicken is coated in starches. The recipe for the KFC chicken batter is basically flour, sugar, salt, black pepper and monosodium glutamate (MSG). All by itself, this is a recipe for chronic degenerative disease because the flour and sugar are highly processed, and the MSG is an excitotoxin that Dr. Russell Blaylock links to obesity, cancer and neurological disorders.

When you fry starches at high temperatures, you also create acrylamides, toxic chemical by-products of cooking that are believed by many health experts to promote cancer (…). One scientific study, for example, demonstrated that eating acrylamides boosts kidney cancer rates by 59 percent. Acrylamides are also linked to ovarian cancer.

What other chemical ingredients might you find in KFC foods?

  • Partially hydrogenated soybean oil (contains trans fats)
  • High-Fructose Corn Syrup (linked to diabetes)
  • Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) (linked to cancer)
  • Titanium Dioxide (used in sunscreen)
  • Yellow #5 (chemical coloring)
  • Propylene Glycol (used as antifreeze in RVs)
  • Red #40 (another chemical coloring)
  • Sodium nitrite (linked to pancreatic cancer)
  • Sodium Benzoate (chemical preservative)
  • Hydrolyzed Corn, Soy and Wheat Protein (may contain hidden MSG)
  • Corn Syrup Solids (more processed sugars)
  • Autolyzed Yeast Extract (another hidden source of MSG)

… and many more.

Here’s an ingredients list from just one product on the KFC menu. How many times does MSG appear in this recipe?

    Yet the collective “we” continues to eat it. I am not an advocate for government involvement in matters such as this, but at some point people need to stand up say enough. Go eat a freaking carrot for goodness sake.

    I’m amazed. All those poor ingredients which are contained within a KFC meal yet there is no mention of the ONE which puts me off more than all those put together. That is L-Cystine – E920/E923 (UK) which amongst other things can contain human hair in the KFC buns.

    In case you think I work for Mcdonalds? It’s also found in THEIR burger buns as well as pizza hut and domino’s pizza dough.

    If you are eating any of those things currently? I sympathize with you, because until I found out I used to eat all those too.

    Keep up the GREAT work! Spread the information about these toxic foods being produced by many different corporations. It’s really amazing that people will pay to slowly kill themselves…..That people will PAY to make themselves SICK, while the corporate titans keep getting richer and richer.

    Let’s all keep waking up! :-)

    It was a sign but tonight a stupid manager was absolutely awful with me talking to me like I was a bum.
    I was checking on google, the rules of management in kfc restaurants and eventually arrived on your article.
    Thank you god or whatever you call it for the warning and helping me to find your article.
