Doner kebabs sold in the UK contain "shocking" levels of salt, fat and calories, a survey has concluded.

 

Officers from 76 councils sampled 494 kebabs to test their nutritional value, during the Local Authority Coordinators of Regulatory Services (Lacors) study.

 

The average doner they tested contained almost 1,000 calories - half a woman's recommended daily intake.

...

Among the kebabs sampled - without salad or sauces - the average doner contained 98% of an adult's recommended daily salt and 148% of their daily saturated fat allowance.

 

Uh-huh, big surprise.

 

Some 35% of labels listed a different meat species than that actually found in the kebab.

 

Six kebabs were found to include pork when it had not been declared as an ingredient. Two of the six were described as Halal - food or drink permitted for Muslims, which must not contain pork.

 

Mr Theobald said it was "totally unacceptable" that people with certain faiths were unknowingly eating meats that were against their beliefs.

 

Shouldn't laugh like :lol:

What if a muslim gay couple want to have a 'manmeat' meal? Are they prohibited from a bit of membrane nourishment?

Don't know why people are "shocked" that they are full of crap.

 

Agreed, always thought it was known as common knowledge. It's why most people feel the need to get wasted before they take the plunge and go down on a kebab.

Rumour had it that the kebab meat moved under a microscope. Common knowledge surely.

Kebabs aren't actually that full of shit, well if you buy it from a decent takeaway. Those types are around 1 part mutton, 2 parts lamb 1 part flank (basically fat) with soya and onions. Although it can get a lot worse if the shop sells cheap shit, which most in town more than likely do.

Never eaten a kebab in my life, am I missing out?

 

Don't eat them sober.

 

If drunk, they are very rewarding.

 

 

just as nice when sober tbh.

If you have the skewered and grilled meat pieces from the tray they are perfectly fine actually.

I often go to Kebabish on the West Road, its superb. Chicken Tikka kebab on a freshly baked Naan bread is superb. SU-fucking-POYB
