5 Really Disgusting Foods

Logo for 5 Really Disgusting Foods

Bangers with just five per cent meat and hot dogs made with a meaty product that doesn't even qualify as meat are back on the menu as Alex Riley rounds up his favourite worst bits uncovered in the Britain's Really Disgusting Food series. Along with some new disgusting gourmet moments Alex reacquaints himself with chicken breasts pumped up with watery goo to make them bigger and chicken kievs where skin, connective tissue and fat have helped to double the 'meat' content on the label. And for pudding there's the gallons of palm oil used in virtually all our favourite chocolate bars. It sticks in Alex's throat when he discovers how it is helping to destroy the rainforest and wiping out orang-utans.
