    Western Family Frozen Chicken Breast?

    I picked up a few boxes of 3kg Western Family Boneless Chicken Breasts because they were about 50% cheaper then the non-branded chicken breasts at my local supermarket. I noticed that the nutritional value of the Western Family chicken to be very different compared to the nutritional value that Google was saying. I am wondering if:

    1) Is the Google chicken breast nutritional value search result roughly accurate?
    2) The non-branded chicken breast will have roughly the same nutritional value as the Google search result?
    3) Western Family chicken breast was processed so it contains much less nutritional value then a normal chicken breast?
    4) The Western Family chicken breast box says that it has "16% meat protein". What does that mean?

    Western Family chicken breast (per 100 g):
    Calories: 100
    Fat: 2.5 g
    Sodium: 380 mg
    Protein: 19 g

    Google's chicken breast nutrition search result (per 100 g): Google "chicken breast nutrition"
    Calories: 165
    Fat: 3.5 g
    Sodium: 74 mg
    Protein: 31 g

    Western Family chicken: Google "western family chicken breast frozen"
    Non-branded chicken: Google "chicken breast package"

    I don't think Google do chicken breasts lol...ha, but serously just go with what's on the box.

    If it's processed then as someone pointed out a little while ago to me that it may not be the most nutrient-filled chicken, but the protein quality won't differ too much. Most people get protein from fast food these days and that's hardly the purest form so don't worry about it too much.

    I'd be more concerned on coming up with some good ideas for all that chicken.
    I have a good joke about water retention. But I'm going to hold onto it for now.

    I'm not an elevator, but I certainly do lift.

    Going to the gym? Ha, it's just a weights of time.

    Steroids and ass. They certainly go well together.

    I'm the BB king..of puns. I train my back using only fish. I love my macker-rows.

    Cheap chicken will be pumped with water to increase the weight, so while you are buying 3kg of chicken in reality it's probably a lot less before it's weight was increased by pumping it with water. That's probably why you are seeing a difference in the nutritional value, your not actually getting 3kg of chicken.
