Someone sent me a link to a video about Meat Glue and the application of it in the food industry.
Having never heard of it before, I was certainly intrigued by it. Here watch this:
I did a search on Wikipedia to find out more. Meat Glue has a sexier name. It is called Transglutaminase. Apparently this is not new. Meat Glue had been discovered since … 1960s. As a matter of fact, Heston Blumenthal introduced the Meat Glue in the Fat Duck restaurant (was #2 best restaurant in the world after El Bulli). I am trying to find out more about this. I read that Blumenthal uses Meat Glue to bind different meat together (like chicken with pork, etc). Read more about this here and here.
It seems like, as a product, Meat Glue is safe. It is the application of it that is the problem.
Is Meat Glue something you would be concerned about?
