No… please no.
First pink slime, then tuna scrape and now… MEAT GLUE!
Is there nothing safe to eat anymore other than rocks and shadows?
Meat glue is a protein adhesive that takes leftover pieces of meat and holds them together so they can look like normal, good cuts of meat.
The two most popular meat glues are Activa and Fibrimex.
Activa is a white powder form of a natural coagulant enzyme called transglutaminase.
Fibrimex is made of enzymes extracted from pig or beef blood.
That is absolutely disgusting. Excuse us, we're feeling sorta barfy.
A policy consultant for the Center for Food Safety said:
"For decades, the meat industry has conveniently operated in the dark, not sharing the dirty details of their practices with the public, while the federal government looked the other way. But now, consumers are demanding to know the truth about what they are."
The worst part of all this is that not even vegetarians are safe. Activa is being used in vegetarian meat substitutes.
