22% fish hmmm



Where did you read that? The cod part the ingredients is as follows:

Battered Cod (41%) [Cod Fillet (54%) (Fish), Wheat Flour (Wheat Flour, Calcium Carbonate, Iron, Niacin (B3), Thiamin (B1)), Sunflower Oil, Water, Rapeseed Oil, Palm Oil, Wheat Starch, Salt, Raising Agents: Diphosphates, Sodium Bicarbonate; Maize Flour, Mustard Flour, Dextrose, Flavourings (contains Mustard), Wheat Gluten, Dried Skimmed Milk, Colours: Curcumin, Capsanthin; Spices]
Formed. Which means this is a giant fish finger basically.

I find fish often smells of urine recently, ammonia from not being too fresh. Sometimes faint, sometimes overpowering, but always there. I'm sure it's a recent thing. One dead one in the batch?

22% of the 300g is fish so basically 66g of reformed cod which is OK for a snack
Marketing at its best. Advertised as beautiful fish fillet but in reality, open the box and its like a frozen piece of cardboard. Paper think and not flakes of fish, but more mush.

Do your colon a favour and get a piece of fish from the fish counter or a fishmonger.

Very simple maths!! chips 59% then battered cod 41% of which 54% is cod fillet so the actual amount of cod is 54% of 41%

Yeah, but what they're saying is stupid. Why you would say '22% fish' when it is boxed with a different product is ridiculous.

People use percentages to derive perceived quality. ie. this burger is only 60% beef it must be packed full of rusk and onion and be low grade. You can't go round saying '22% fish' trying to suggest that there's nearly 80% garbage in the fillet.

They fooled you into thinking that, hence you posting that there isn't 22% anywhere to be seen.
I stopped buying Youngs fish products years ago, i find them rank!, i wouldn't even give these to my cat!, i used to find the fish very dark and the batter very mushy which give the family upset stomachs, i actually emailed them at the time but got no reply, i now avoid them like the plague!

All super market frozen fish are rubbish except M&S but you pay about 70% more but well worth it
