    I'm gonna wait 20 years or so. By then we should know that it's non-carcinogenic.

    But you eat diseased chicken that's been pumped full of hormones and antibiotics? The ingredients are right there on the label.

    So, is deep-fried "plant-based" crap healthier than deep-fried chicken?

    I'm guessing the deep-fried part is pretty much the elephant in the room.

    Bring on the industrial Frankenfood . Perfect match for the corporate fast food world. Watch the chronic disease rate continue to increase not only in the less educated demographic but now In the higher educated vegan demo.

    I don't see how modified, artificially made plant based food is any better than real meat, even if it came from meat that are made from fast growing chickens, chickens have livers and they filter and chicken meat is young, like 40 days old. Plants , on the other hand are fed with pesticides, fungicides, insecticides etc and then with some chemical magic and engineering something comes out that they call vegan chicken. Why would anyone eat that.

    And it is perfectly natural to eat meat , everyones is doing it icon_lol.gif in nature, well, that is how nature works, sure it would be great to eat chicken that comes from wild and plants that have nothing added to them while they grow, but we don't live in ideal world. Ideally it is best to eat wild stuff. But there are like 7 billion people on the planet and all of them need to be fed, not enough clean food to go around, that is just the reality, but on the other hand, west is overeating , not good either.

    And anyway, KFC is fast food, does not matter, plant or animal based, it is still fast food that shouldn't be consumed too often.

    Chicken in America, truly is fowl.

    We try to avoid anything deep-fried. A reason we got an air fryer. Both of us have to control high cholesterol, and circulation system plaque buildup. I don’t care what’s inside, vegan or meat, it’s the deep-frying that’s the issue for us.

    Actually I don’t even know of a KFC near us. But if this vegan thing will be deep-fried like their chicken, we won’t be looking for their location.

    Except for the breading, wouldn't that be like tempura in a Japanese restaurant (admittedly taken in smaller portions, and much healthier)?

    Haven't eaten it in years, but do remember the taste of fried chicken, and the great pleasure of eating it. I think the human brain is programmed to like salty and fatty foods - programming left over from before the discovery of agriculture, when eating the most calories counted toward survival.

    The mammalian body (our body) needs salt. In our modern world where salt is plentiful, at times TOO plentiful in our foods, we’re ignorant of how vital it is.

    In ancient times Roman soldiers were given a regular issue of salt. Some have wrongly assumed it was their pay, but it was part of their food rations. Nevertheless, the Latin word for salt (salis) has morphed into our English word “salary”.

    When I was in the US Army our fabric canteen covers, that we wore on our web belts, had a pocket for salt tablets that we were issued. We were supposed to drop them into the canteen’s water. To replenish the salt we’d lose from sweating in the field. Same thing as happened to ancient Roman soldiers.

    I don't think anyone has claimed this to be health food. LOL. It's simply a plant-based alternative. But yes, I would definitely rather eat the plant-based version rather than a saturated fat-laden chicken that has been pumped full of hormones and antibiotics. But fried anything is not going to be very healthy. If it tastes good, I might eat it once or twice a year as a treat but that's about it.

    I agree with you. I’m sure KFC is hoping this might appeal to Vegans who object to eating animals.

    The way in which a food is prepared, however healthy it may be in its natural state, is a different matter. I prefer fish or poultry over red meats for health reasons, but only grilled, baked or broiled. And never charred, that can add carcinogens.

    Plus I simply don’t like the taste & texture of charred. While deep fried can actually turn my stomach, I hate the smell of hot grease & oil. Perhaps a natural defense mechanism.

    As for chicken (and turkey) their appeal to me, besides taste, is their relatively low fat compared to red meats. I like duck, too, but it’s a bit fattier, though there’s a trick to removing some of it during cooking.

    Regarding growth hormones & antibiotics, the former I don’t approve using. The latter actually helps protect me, against diseases chickens can carry. It also helps preserve the flock, because otherwise the market cost could skyrocket due to high bird mortality.

    Even small flocks that “free range” can be ravaged by disease and become unmarketable, if they survive at all. Although before antibiotics are required in the presence of an active disease or as a prophylaxis, there are vaccines that can be preventive. I don’t know if those vaccines are an issues for human who consume chickens, or other farmed animals, to include for eggs & dairy.

    I have found, eating chicken in America, to be a fowl experience. It's just so pale, full of muscle, and tasteless.
