BUT THERE MIGHT BE MORE IN THE RAW CHICKEN YOU BUY, THAN YOU REALIZE.

NBC'S SUSAN SHAPIRO FINDS OUT WHAT MAY BE ADDED TO IT, THAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT. Return to index of stories...


ENHANCED CHICKEN-PKG


DEB DEHNE EATS QUITE A BIT OF CHICKEN. SO SHE WAS SURPRISED TO RECENTLY DISCOVER THAT SOME RAW CHICKEN HAS ADDED INGREDIENTS.

"I didn't really expect that in a chicken breast "

CHICKEN PROCESSORS OFTEN INJECT POULTRY WITH WATER, SALT AND SOMETIMES PHOSPHATES AND BROTH. ITS DONE TO IMPROVE THE FLAVOR AND TENDERNESS. THIS PACKAGE INDICATES IT CONTAINS A 15% SOLUTION.

Q:Do you know what it means when it says 15% solution.

MOS:I have no idea. More likely water added

Q:Do you know it adds a lot more salt

MOS:No I didn't know that that is really important to a lot of people

EDWARD MILLS IS AN ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR OF DAIRY AND ANIMAL SCIENCE AT PENN STATE. HE MIXED UP A SALT AND PHOSPHATE SOLUTION TO SHOW US THE PROCESS HE CALLS "INJECTION MARINADE", AND THE INDUSTRY REFERS TO AS ENHANCEMENT. HE INJECTS IT INTO THE MUSCLE OF THE CHICKEN BREASTS.

"I'm going to push those openings in the needles inside just release a little bit because I am looking for my 10%."

HE SAYS THERE ARE NO REGULATIONS THAT LIMIT THE AMOUNT THAT CAN BE INJECTED.BUT IF THE PERCENTAGE IS TOO HIGH IT CHANGES THE TEXTURE OF THE CHICKEN.

"Commercial processors would use a machine like this it controls the pressure and also the cycle of the injector needles and the speed of the conveyor that allows for precise amount of injection marinade."

HOWEVER ITS DONE, THE INGREDIENTS MUST BE LISTED ON THE LABEL AND INFORMATION ON THE NUTRITION PANEL.

CONSUMERS WITH DIET RESTRICTIONS.OR EVEN ALLERGIES NEED TO BE AWARE.

"Salt is the second ingredient in that solution and we are up to 480 mg. of sodium per serving that's up from another package where it was 70 mg. For folks that are trying to control sodium really important pay attention to that "

DEB DEHNE SAYS SHE WILL STILL BUY CHICKEN, BUT SHE'LL PROBABLY GO FOR THE ONE LABELED ALL NATURAL WITHOUT ADDED WATER, SALT AND PHOSPHATES.

AND SHE SAYS THAT WAY SHE WON'T BE PAYING FOR WATER WEIGHT AT CHICKEN PRICES.

EXTREME EATING-PKG


CURED PORK, CUSTARD AND BUTTER INFUSED SYRUP. IT'S THE BRULEED FRENCH TOAST AT CHEESE CAKE FACTORY 2780 CALORIES AND THEN THERE'S DESERT.

"3 cheesecakes on for me one for her and one for my husband.

"this is the calorie count for one day this dish"

THESE ITEMS ALL GOT AN EXTREME EATING AWARD FOR THE CENTER FOR THE SCIENCE IN THE PUBLIC INTEREST. AS DID THE MEXICAN RESTAURANT CHAIN CHEVY'S, FAMOUS DAVES WITH IT'S BIG SLAB OF SPARE RIBS AND THE RED ROBIN BURGER CHAIN WHICH FEATURES MONSTER BURGERS WITH THE SALTED CARAMEL MILKSHAKE. IT'S A YEARLY ROUND UP LISTING THE OFFERINGS WITH THE MOST SUGAR SALT FAT AND CALORIES. THE CHEESECAKE FACTORY RESPONDED WITH A STATEMENT TODAY SAYING:

"MANY OF OUR GUESTS COME IN AND WANT TO CELEBRATE AND NOT BE CONCERNED WITH CALORIES. OTHERS WANT TO SHARE THEIR DISH AND A LARGE PERCENTAGE OF OUR GUESTS TAKE HOME LEFTOVERS FOR LUNCH THE NEXT DAY."

"i know i just ate a lot of calories and i love it. it's so good."

"so you want to burn those calories off well 5 hours of jogging for the chicken and pasta dish from the cheesecake factory and that reese's peanut butter chocolate cake cheesecake? at least 4 and a half hours of aerobics"

SO MAYBE IT GIVES YOU PAUSE THAT THE CENTER SAYS ONE CANTADINA STYLE STEAK FROM MANGIANOS IS IS EQUIVALENT TO EATING NINE MICKEY D'S QUARTER POUNDERS WITH A CHEESEBURGER ON THE SIDE. BUT DINERS WE TALKED TO SAY THAT EATING OUT ISN'T SUPPOSED TO BE THE SAME AS COOKING FOR YOURSELF.

"salt calories fat, i'm aware of that so i do try to order more reasonable."

WATER THERAPY-PKG


THIS IS ONE OF DELANEY BOSWORTH'S FAVORITE PARTS OF THE WEEK. ITS HER AQUA THERAPY SESSION AT KENNEDY KRIEGER.

AT 14 YEARS OLD, DELANEY IS TEACHING HER BODY TO WALK AGAIN AFTER SHE SUDDENLY COLLAPSED AND BECAME PARALYZED THREE YEARS AGO.

"I didn't know what was happening I was very scared no one knew what was happening and that was the scary part. "

DELANEY WAS EVENTUALLY DIAGNOSED WITH A RARE CONDITION CALLED TRANSVERSE MYELITIS, OR T-M. DOCTORS BELIEVE HERS STEMMED FROM A VIRUS THAT ATTACKED HER SPINAL CORD.

SINCE THEN SHE'S BEEN UNDERGOING TRADITIONAL PHYSICAL THERAPY AND JUST A COUPLE OF MONTHS AGO ADDED AQUA THERAPY.

"It's so different than land therapy because you are weightless so you can do things that you couldn't do on land I can walk around no brace no walker just walk around sometimes with the help of my p-t and the parallel bars in the pool so its really easy for me to take a step and get the full range of motion in my foot and everything."

THESE POOLS ARE EQUIPPED WITH TREADMILLS, AND THEY'RE HEATED TO ALLOW THE MUSCLES TO MOVE MORE EASILY.

BECAUSE SHE'S WEIGHTLESS IN THE WATER SHE CAN GET MUCH MORE ACCOMPLISHED IN ONE SESSION.

"The water therapy allows her to walk for more repetitions for longer bouts and that practice is really great for the nervous system and for Delaney she can then carry that over on land. We can also use the water to do standing and balance activities and strengthening activities for her core."

"One of the cool things about aqua therapy is there are underwater cameras so Delaney can see her feet moving and that visual cues helps give feedback to her brain. "

DELANEY HAS MADE A LOT OF PROGRESS IN THE LAST THREE YEARS. SHE CAN MOVE HER LEGS ON HER OWN AND EVEN STAND WITH ASSISTANCE.

AS SHE ENTERS HIGH SCHOOL THIS FALL SHE'S GOT ONE GOAL: BEING ABLE TO WALK AGAIN.

"Its all up from here basically I can't get any worse so i'm just going to keep making progress and just do therapy as much as I can with school an try to incorporate as much as I can."

AND WITH HER POSITIVE ATTITUDE SHE'S WELL ON HER WAY. Return to index of stories...

THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

Showers will be common through the day Monday.

An area of high pressure is situated itself over southern Florida and is working to bring scattered shower chances to the area this afternoon. Due to weak steering winds, pin pointing exact locations of rain will be tough the next few days. Will mention every area within Southwest Florida able to receive showers and storms the next few days.

Temperatures on the high end again this afternoon. Additional cloud cover will help cool some of us down. Still aiming for highs today right around 90° - 92°.

The next few days our weather pattern stays put. Expect nearly the same conditions up through the middle of the week with temperatures gradually getting warmer. Return to index of stories...

"We're using fire to actually end up the split ends."

Alicia: What's the Brazilian name for it? There's actually a technical term.

"Yeah, the technical term is called velaterapia."

HAIR EXPERT - RICARDO GOMES - LIGHTS UP A CANDLE AND GETS STARTED!

"So actually what you guys can see is by twisting the hair, I have all this hair coming out and that's what gets burned. and the candle, we don't get too close to the hair. If I run my fingers through it, they just fall off."

Alicia: So those are all the split ends?

"Yes."

"the cool thing about it is that when you burn the hair it stops right where it's supposed to stop because you're twisting it, so the hair is actually safe inside of that."

AFTER ALL THE HAIR HAS BEEN BURNED. GIVE IT A WASH. AND A DEEP CONDITIONING.

"so this is the final process-I'm just blow drying her hair as you can see i invite you to just run your fingers through her hair."

Alicia: That's a huge difference

"feel the texture, it looks nicer, healthier, stronger. It-you can feel the difference. It's silky and nice and she's ready to go." Return to index of stories...
