Are those french fries vegan? Not likely
by S. D. Wells
(NaturalNews) How many vegetarians and vegans want the juices from chicken in their french fries? Unfortunately, whether they like it or not, that's what they're getting. Commercial "deep fryers" are used at nearly every restaurant, pub and cinema cafe in America. The hydrogenated oils are contained in ONE large fryer for everything they cook -- from the chicken to the fries, and those french fries certainly soak up chicken juice. Plus, the hydrogenated oils are GMO, and so is the animal feed given to those chickens, so the fries are loaded with "meat juice" you probably never even thought to inquire about. "Yes sir, do you have vegetarian fries?"
Picture the metal containers of oil in the restaurant kitchens. You've seen them before. Over the counter by the wall, those boiling fryers full of genetically modified and toxic canola, soy, safflower, corn and cottonseed oils, bubbling and splattering, sometimes burning workers' arms and hands. Then those wire cages full of battered chicken are dipped in, and in just minutes pulled out fried to a tender brown and crispy. Then up come the fries, having soaked up the juice from the meat and served to ALL guests, whether vegetarians or vegans, pescatarians or omnivores; it doesn't really matter to the restaurant industry, unless someone starts asking questions.
Eating CAFO FriesBy eating CAFO fries, you're supporting the CAFO and cancer industries. Confined animal feeding operations are also run by corporations steeped in the use of synthetic hormones that cause cancer tumors, and antibiotics that are used to stave off infection but are now becoming useless against superbugs. Did you know that the world slaughters to keep that industry afoot?
By eating fries cooked in the oil container that's frying the chickens, not only are you consuming meat, but you are consuming hydrogenated oils full of hormones that are chemically altered and that do NOT boil out. This could easily be your number one source of inflammation. In fact, inflammation drives all sorts of diseases and disorders of the body and the cells. Add in some irradiated salts (like MSG) to disrupt those nerve and brain signals. Some of that chicken cooking next to those fries contains dimethylpolysiloxane -- that anti-foaming agent that's been exposed as an industrial chemical used in caulking and sealants.
Yes, vegetable oils for frying fries are a blend of toxic oils. I bet you also know that canola oil is really rapeseed oil. The name was just changed for marketing reasons.
Eating Antibiotics in Hydrogenated OilsEighty percent of all antibiotics sold in the US are used in CAFOs. Even veterinarians sell these drugs to farmers. But what do you really know about deep frying drugs? Let's take a quick look. Deep frying involves plunging food into boiling oil at about 180 to 190 degrees Celsius, or about 375 degrees Fahrenheit. The food stays moist on the inside though, and the cooking process happens quickly. So what happens? Rapid surface heating takes place which changes the surface proteins, limiting the flow of water from the product being deep fat fried. The surface, in other words, is sealed, and moisture inside the food stays in place. So where does that leave the CAFO drugs, including artificial hormones and antibiotics?
Are these restaurants frying the fries with the fish too? Just grab the handle, dump into a bin and then into little bags or onto a "veggie" plate and serve! Some restaurants mix their new oil with the old oils to save money, but those old oils are oxidized and probably experienced hydrolysis, where water escapes the frying food and breaks down the oil into free fatty acids. Imagine what you do to your body consuming all of this. Are your french fries "eating" CAFO chickens before they "hit your plate"?
You might go buy your own organic potatoes and cook them in organic coconut oil to avoid this major catastrophe. Then you could be sure that there's no dead-chicken-meat-juice on your potato skins or inside the batter that's covering your fried vegetables!
