This Is What The White Striping On Your Chicken Breast Really Is
Ever noticed those white stripes on uncooked chicken breasts? They are the result of a muscle disorder in the chicken. The result isn't bad for you but it the condition usually adds to the fat content by over 200% and tends to lower the amount of protein. That being said, nutritionists still agree that chicken (as long as it's not breaded and deep-fried) is still a great source of lean protein. If you are buying the bird keep an eye out for labels with a 'No Antibiotics Ever' seal.
