Pink Slime- What’s all the fuss?

This whole pink slime thing is out of control. It’s a filler. A Bulking agent. It’s made from the very thing it’s filling/bulking. And they cleaned/disinfected it for us!

Consider that low calorie foods, cereals, pastries, breads and most processed foods also have bulking agents in them! Some of the most common bulking agents are :

  • Fibers: Guar Gum, Psyllium Husk
  • Carnuba Wax
  • Mannitol
  • Maltitol
  • Glycerin
  • Methylcellulose
  • Polydextrose
  • Beta Glucan
  • Pectin

Check your ingredient list for these! You’ll find them in all kinds of foods. Good luck avoiding them too!

ABC news is reporting that the manufacturer of this pink slime (better known as lean finely textured beef ) is going on the offensive to defend its product. It’s just beef after all right?
