Well, this seems relevant.

Carbshark will be delighted to hear this, I'm sure:

In December 2018, the United States Department Of Agriculture’s Food Safety And Inspection Service quietly reclassified “lean finely textured beef,” which some deride as “pink slime,” as “ground beef.”

Not related to the pink slime thing, but this bit seemed weird to me:

(…) saying it will make consumers nervous about beef products and could even open the door for lab-grown or cell-based meat to be labeled ground beef.
Um, yeah? Of course it's ground beef. What the hell else would it be?
What is the exact opposite of delighted?

‘Deboarded’ is the exact opposite of ‘boarded,’ so perhaps ‘lighted’ is the direct opposite of ‘delighted?’

I was looking for a word of the opposite meaning in English. Should have been clear about that.
and Donald Trump is President of the United States.

I'm not a doctor, I'm just someone who has done a ton of research into diet and nutrition.

Well, ‘lighted’ is an English word.  It was a wordplay.  I took your comment as a wordplay too, since obviously you could have done a Google search yourself.

Take your pick.  I don’t know what context you’re trying to use the direct opposite of ‘delighted.’

Playful way to deliver an idea:

What is the exact opposite of delighted?

Cute humorous response:

Weirdly making it into an actual discussion:

Actually, I think we’re well and truly off topic, and we’d better stop before the site Nazis moderators issue us with an infraction.
