How to Recognize Low-Quality Chicken: Expert Advice

In addition, scientists from the University of Texas 2016 studied more than 285 servings of chicken sold in grocery stores. Experts found that more than 96% of the fillets on store shelves were affected by the disease, and their declared nutritional value is extremely far from the real one.
