Why don’t we just pay up and eat nothing but prime rib, or grind our own meat?

This stuff isn’t slime, it’s small meat parts that aren’t wasted. Otherwise known as protein.

So now the price goes up for all meat and we will end up wasting a significant portion of it. No doubt the whiners will also say we can’t send it to any countries with starving people. Let them eat sirloin.

Do you see evidence that the American consumer is lacking protein in the diet? I could see using this product to enhance the protein content of food aid sent to starving people in North Korea…but I certainly don’t want it added into food I buy at my local grocery store.

And the way it was sneaked into items with zero labelling that a highly processed, chemically treated ingredient was in there? Sorry, that’s adulterated food in my opinion, and should have been clearly labelled as such, at the very least.
