I'm almost afraid to ask (because my children love them) but what is in them?

I searched and searched for the original article to no avail; his major gross-out was skin and ligaments. Here's some other things some put in their nuggets:

"Some manufacturers were using a new technique - injecting so-called hydrolysed proteins. These are proteins extracted at high temperatures or by chemical hydrolysis from old animals or parts of animals which are no use for food, such as skin, feathers, hide, bone and ligaments, and rather like cosmetic collagen implants, they make the flesh swell up and retain liquid."

Eew.

Chicken nuggets are gross, unless you buy them at Chick-fil-A (I worked there while in college and it was real chicken meat). Anyway, I'm allergic to many fruits and vegetables, but I feed my kids those things anyway. I wish I wasn't allergic!

Yuck, I'm sure it is miserable to be allergic to a variety of foods.
