I watched with horror the following video by Australia’s Today Tonight Show and thought it worthy to share. I personally was completely unfamiliar with transglutaminase a.k.a. meat glue. Unfortunately in the United States, there are no regulations prohibiting the use of meat glue or laws to require transglutaminase to be on the label. It is just another reason to seek grass-fed meats and unprocessed foods.
- improving the texture in processed meats like hot dogs,
- making yogurt and milk creamier,
- making noodles firmer, and
- improving the texture of low-grade meat.
All the work my family puts into making our own sausage, our own yogurt, milking our own goat, and raising grass fed beef is all worth it. If you do not have the time or space to raise your own grass fed beef, seriously consider letting us supply your family with all-natural, humanely-raised, real beef. Cross Creek Cattle Company would be happy to fill your order.
