An activist group Compassion in World Farming is urging people to learn about “white striping,” which is a muscle disorder affecting chicken breasts.
According to a study conducted in 2013; the condition known as “white striping” ups fat content by 224 percent & lowers the amount of protein.
Fat increased and muscle decreased proportional to the amount of white striping present in the chicken.
The condition looks like white striations running parallel to the regular muscle.
The condition “negatively impacts meat quality” by affecting marinade uptake and cook loss.
According to FoodEnvy.tv:
Chicken A shows you a regular chicken breast, Chicken B gives you an example of slightly moderate white striping. Chicken breast C is the most severe.
