Meat injected with salt water looks plump and different from flat natural meat product. Organic chicken without salt water injection is good for health and your payment would be worth enough only for meat and not for salt water intentionally weighed as meat by misconceiving the innocent customers.
2) Carbon Monoxide

Before meat is packed and held in meat case, carbon monoxide is used, as it is capable of being fixed to myoglobin and helps it to remain reddish.
