People Are Left ‘Worried’ After Finding Out What’s Inside Their Doner Kebab


People are still in shock after learning what’s hidden inside a doner kebab.

After a wild night out, the British tradition is to eat a doner kebab with extra chilli sauce, no onion, and no tomatoes, boss man. But have you ever wondered what exactly goes into one?

No? I didn’t either, but Jimmy Doherty of Food Unwrapped made the decision to gather nine doner kebabs from nine different eateries and send them to forensic expert Paul Hancock for analysis to find out exactly what was inside.

The majority of us might think that the popular takeaway item is entirely comprised of lamb, but Hancock decided to investigate and searched for other sorts of meat, including beef, chicken and pork – as well as the less common horse, donkey and goat.

Hancock said: “There’s only one doner kebab that is actually doing the real thing is the real deal.

“Most of them contain chicken. We’ve also got a couple which contain beef. Fortunately, we found no goat, no donkey, and no horse in any of the products.”

Doherty then asked what Hancock thought the outcome would be with a larger sample size.

“If I gave you 900 doner kebabs, who knows the kind of results we’d have found?” he asked.

Hancock replied: “I would expect to see probably around a 60 percent failure rate. That would probably be typical.”

As you can imagine, takeaway fans were slightly taken aback by the revelation with one person posting on the Food Unwrapped’s YouTube channel: “Even if I could overlook the rubbish mixed in with the meat the fact that these meats are heated and cooled many many times bothers me.”
Another said: “Scary. What is really sad is that only one store out of nine used lamb. If they can get away with it and it costs them nothing, they will do it!”

While a third added: “This is important to know often these kebab shops people tell people it’s lamb but in reality contains beef and pork too. We might not care what its made of but still should be able to make informed decisions and they should punish these people who just add random stuff.”

But not everyone was horrified – one kebab-lover wrote: “As long as they taste like they do I’d still eat them even if it had humans in it.” Not sure I’d go that far, but each to their own.

After discovering the doner kebab might not be all it’s cracked up to be, people were shocked to find what’s inside their fry up favourite – The black pudding
