Pink poultry paste, what's the big deal?Pink poultry paste, what's the big deal?

I feel like I just had a flashback to 4th grade when my friends told me Bubble Yum was made out of spider eggs and Alice Cooper at live bats. Notice she's fussing that "muscle tissue" is included in the mix. Precisely what does she think boneless breast of chicken is if not "muscle tissue?" There are no eyeballs, blood or other questionable items. It's not soaked in ammonia (though ammonium hydroxide can be included, but you may as well fuss that sodium chloride and di-hydrogen monoxide are used). But if 20th century meat-processing isn't for you, go read "The Jungle" or, for that matter, try to find an authentic scrapple recipe on the net. Let's be real about this: for all of recorded history we've used every bit of the animal but the oink, cluck and moo... we're just better at doing it now. But keep in mind that saltpeter has been used in sausage making for centuries, and I hope everyone knows where that's found. But if you're wanting to check out something fun and related to the meat paste, check Amazon for "meat glue."

Di-hydrogen monoxide?!? That's that stuff used in most chemical processes, factories and industrial cleaning that ends up in our babies food, and even finds it's way into our taps... ban it, ban it now!

Latest comment: Those pictures are from Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution, watch the nugget experiment and you will see that even knowing the ingredients wont change the minds of most kids...

so what? if they didn't use whats left they would be accused of being inefficient. If a chicken has to die to feed us, it's better that we use it all.

Well first off, the young turks are WAAAY behind. This has been mentioned long long ago... Secondly, as others have mentioned here, maybe they're not the finest cuts of meat but it's edible, can be healthy and more importantly if an animal is going to die for our dinner, why should we be throwing bits away?!? We kill an animal, and throw bits away? That is wasteful and disgusting. You want a story? Look at how commercial chickens are kept while alive! Beaks trimmed, claws cut, wings clipped, kept in ridiculously small cages and killed within a few months of birth... the males are dispatched in a grinder straight away as they're useless... I'm all for eating every part of an animal, I love meat and can't stand waste.

Yeah, God forbid we might eat muscle tissue. A dense moment from an otherwise fairly intelligent American. They need to watch Food, inc. Most retail burgers in the US are treated with Ammonia after a kid died then they are turned into huge slabs, flavoured and dyed.

Am I missing something here? It might sound disgusting using the terms she does, but most food could be made to sound repulsive in a negative advertising sort of way. Is it unhealthy? Is it bad for you? As far as I can find out the answer is “No!”. Okay, if you eat too much of it, it probably is. But that goes for anything. If it’s part of a balanced diet or just the occasional “treat”, does it really matter? I'm still having a Mc after playing football at weekend.
