Tracking Chickens Injected with Water and Dyed Yellow

When shopping for chickens, it is important for housewives to be cautious as there are risks associated with purchasing chickens outside of the market. However, chickens are highly versatile and can easily be incorporated into a variety of delicious meals.


However, not everyone is observant enough to choose a pre-cooked chicken that tastes good, as sellers often employ various tricks to make the pre-cooked chicken appear plump and oily.

To maximize profits, many small traders resort to dyeing the chicken with chemicals or injecting water into it to attract customers and increase its weight.

After being dyed with chemicals, the chicken acquires a yellowish color that is visually appealing to buyers. Unfortunately, less careful customers may mistake this artificially colored chicken for a naturally yellow one. To distinguish between dyed yellow chicken and normal yellow chicken, one can rely on the color of the fat inside the chicken. If the chicken is yellow but the fat is white, it has certainly been dyed with chemicals. This is because the chicken is usually immersed in the dyeing solution prior to sale, while the internal parts of the chicken remain unaffected.

Chemical dyeing and water injection pose serious health risks if consumed. Chemical dyes used on chicken can be dangerous for food consumption, while the water pumped into chicken is often mixed with prohibited additives used in the food industry. Therefore, housewives should exercise caution when purchasing chicken from sources outside of trusted markets. When selecting pre-cooked chicken, it is advisable to choose firm, naturally-colored chicken with a normal smell. A genuine chicken should have a pale yellow color and not stick to the hand when touched.
