Jimmy sets out to discover how economy chicken kievs can be made so cheaply. Premium chicken kievs are made with 100% chicken breast while economy use the left over chicken. He demonstrates how factories can go about mechanically recovering chicken meat from the carcass using tools and a car tyre in his barn. He uses the meat he recovers and mixes it with soya protein to make his own economy kievs. He then deep fries it to crispen the outside before baking and sampling!

The clip explains what is required for commercial food products to be labelled meat, rather than 'mechanically recovered' meat, and shows the structure of meat under magnification. This clip could be used to generate discussion on food processing and what happens to our food within food factories.
