is simply delicious unlike the one in some other countries. However even in Mauritius it all depends on where you are eating it. KFC Shoprite being one of my favorite. Well whatever the level your KFC Fan meter indicates, this delicious piece of chicken is so full of sh*ts to propel you to hell sooner or later. Here are 7 unbelievable facts that might (or not) discourage you from eating KFC.

KFC Waiter Joke

The Chicken

KFC uses factory farming to produce their chicken. This means maximization of profits by neglecting health conditions at farms. The chickens are provided with no room to move and are deprived of sun. They are fed the cheapest quality of grain (including newspaper and cardboard), a lot of antibiotics and hormones to accelerate their growth. They are thus deformed and ill. Also, all of the chemicals, newspaper, cardboard and medicines are injected into the food chain and make their way into your body!


This version of sugar added to KFC recipes suppresses the immune function of the body and leads to diabetes. This can also potentially cause addiction to KFC products.

KFC Salt

KFC uses highly refined table salt. This means that it is devoid of essentials minerals and has a ton of additives that potentially lead to heavy metal toxicity, Alzheimer’s disease, high blood pressure and kidney problems.

Partially Hydrogenated Oil

This is where you should really start getting worried. The oils used at KFC are literally saturated with omega-6 fatty acids. Though useful, but consumption in such large quantities causes heart problems and impaired brain function.

Monosodium Glutamate

The infamous MSG is no stranger to many folks. Many food manufacturers including KFC use MSG (Also known as Adinomoto in Mauritius) as a flavor magnifier. Seems great. The only problem being that in addition to flavor enhancing, it also kills brain cells and dumbs you down. It acts quickly and is not good for you. Other ingredients such as the Autolyzed yeast also contain MSG.

Chicken Fat and Beef Fat

If coming from a healthy farm raised animal, these fats can do a lot of good to the body. However, there is a small problem. The animal bodies are designed to protect themselves from toxicity by trapping the toxins in the fat reserves. Thus, in a factory-raised animal, as in case of KFC, these fats can prove to be pretty toxic on consumption.

Bleached Wheat Flour

Since the bleached wheat flour is an extremely refined source of carbohydrates, its consumption can cause rapid insulin spikes in the blood sugar level and cause problems with insulin control. This is a certain path to diabetes and gaining a good amount of fat on you.
