High-priced chicken is not as good as ordinary chicken

The reporter sent ordinary chicken and high-priced chicken samples to the Animal Science College of Zhejiang University for experimental testing. The results showed that many nutrients showed that ordinary chickens were more nutritious than high-priced chickens.

Recently, Miss He, who lives in Hushu South Road, wants to buy a chicken in the underground supermarket of Hangzhou Building to make up for her family. She unexpectedly discovered a kind of “original chicken” from Hangzhou Xiangxiang Farms Co., Ltd. The chicken price is 360 yuan. It is understood that an ordinary live chicken on the market, the general price is about 15 yuan / kg, free-range chicken, about 25 yuan per catty, 360 can be described as high-priced chicken. The price is expensive, but what Miss Miss can wonder is that the nutritional value of this kind of chicken is higher than that of the average chicken? The reporter and the big secret agent also found the high-priced chickens that Miss He said in the underground supermarket of Hangzhou Building.

Online search for the farm is located in the Tongshan Township of Tonglu, Hangzhou. Last week, the reporter and the big secret agent conducted a field visit. The result was unexpectedly discovered that the local villagers did not know this large-scale farm, and even the Lushan Township Government did not know the specific conditions of the farm. Throughout the Laoshan Township, the price control of the local chicken is relatively stable, and the highest price of the chicken is 60 yuan a pound. The farmers have never heard of local high-priced chicken.

Immediately, the reporter called the person in charge of the company’s surname Fu. “We can’t tell you the address, because our chickens are all native stocks, and because the chickens here are all fed with Chinese medicine, if there are more people coming in and out, the chickens are more susceptible to bacteria, so the base staff rarely enters.” The person in charge has been evading and has never refused to disclose the address.

The local professional chicken farmers also broke the news to reporters: “These stocked chickens, even if the Chinese medicine is eaten, how much ingredients are absorbed in the chicken, these Chinese medicines are not beneficial to the human body, there is no authoritative argument “And the chickens in the farms of the township, after forcibly feeding Chinese medicine, had hair loss and could not be cured. When asked where the farms in Shuxiang were, the farmer said that he did not know, but he had heard of it.

Sending to Zhejiang University: Nutritional value is not as good as ordinary chicken

On the company’s website, there is a saying: “The protein, amino acids and various trace elements contained in the chicken chicken in the township are much higher than ordinary chicken, and the fat content is only half that of ordinary chicken.” This is exactly the same as what the salesperson said. Is the nutritional value of high-priced chickens really higher than that of ordinary chickens?

To this end, the reporter and the secret agent Dafu prepared the chickens in the township and the chickens bought in the general market, and sent them to the Institute of Feed Science, Zhejiang University, to conduct a comparative test on the nutritional value of the two chickens. The experimental researchers will test three types of chicken meat, the crude protein content in chicken, the crude fat content in chicken, and the amino acid content in chicken.

First, the experimenter took the chicken of the two chickens and air-dried them into powder. The experimenter took the same amount of chicken powder and weighed the two chicken powders. Then, with 0.5 g of catalyst (copper sulfate and potassium sulfate) The ratio is integrated and there is a carbonization reaction process; the two samples are then heat treated.

After two days of experimental testing, finally in the experimental report, the reporter saw that the crude protein content of high-priced chicken is 77.83%, while that of ordinary chicken is 74.68%; the crude fat content, high-priced chicken is 4.56%, and ordinary chicken is 4.61%. The amino acid data is even more amazing. The high-priced chicken shows a value of 73.93, and the average chicken is 74.53, which is still high in common chicken.

The test results, crude protein, crude fat are similar, and the amino acid content, high-priced chicken is not even normal chicken. It seems that the high price of chicken is only the price. The Chinese medicine department of Hangzhou Chinese Medicine Hospital believes that some merchants claim that the nourishing effect of Chinese medicine chickens is good, or whether they are specific Chinese medicines that are fed, and what are the active ingredients of these Chinese medicines, but after they have fed these Chinese medicines, can they It is also a problem to accumulate these active ingredients and how much can be absorbed by our body.

“If I really eat this so-called ecological chicken, I think it is better to eat these nourishing Chinese medicine directly.” He Yingchun said.
