Read this and you may never eat chicken again

Most meat animals are raised with the assistance of daily doses of antibiotics. By 2050, antibiotic resistance will cause a staggering 10 million deaths a year Every year I spend some time in a tiny apartment in Paris, seven storeys above the mayor’s offices for the 11th arrondissement. The Place de la Bastille – the spot where the French revolution sparked political change that transformed the world – is a 10-minute walk down a narrow street that threads between student nightclubs and Chinese fabric wholesalers. Twice a week, hundreds of Parisians crowd down it, heading to the marché de la...

ARTIFICAL MARBLING BEEF!!! 人工雪花牛

You like beef that has a nice fat marbling? We say Beef should be lean and tender. NOT FAT! WATCH THIS! 有些雪花牛以人工方法注入牛脂製成,模仿雪花紋理。 日本雪花和牛(又稱霜降牛)入口即溶,口感鬆軟,令人垂涎三尺。不過,天然雪花牛數量有限,有些雪花牛其實是以人工方法注入牛脂製成,模仿雪花紋理。 最近網上流傳《神戶新聞》早年拍攝和牛雪花加工過程的影片,可見製作工場內有經溶解的液體牛脂、混合調味料,以一部約有100口針的機器將牛脂注入牛肉內,製作成雪花和牛,過程約為1至2分鐘。   有日媒曾報道,製作加工雪花牛的調味料,包含食鹽、寒天、乳蛋白化合物、氨基酸調味劑等,連同液態牛脂於攝氏40至50度環境下注入牛肉內,然後迅速冷藏,經處理的牛肉肉質會變得柔軟多汁。有食品製作商稱,製作過程嚴謹,以防牛肉有病菌滋生,所有器具亦會徹底消毒及清潔。   作為消費者,想分辨天然和人工雪花牛,可留意會否有以下標示字眼: 霜降り加工 やわらか加工 據報「注脂牛」做法早於30至40年前已出現,現時有些日本餐廳亦會採用這些牛肉作食材。在日本,「注脂牛」並不犯法,但商戶須列明相關牛肉涉及加工製造。

Your Grass-fed Beef is just different! Don't follow the crowd!

Your Grass-fed Beef is just different! Don't follow the crowd!

What different grades of meat mean, and why meat grades don’t matter for grass-fed beef If you’ve dined at a local steakhouse recently, you may have seen USDA Prime Beef advertised on your menu. What does this mean? Is prime beef better or healthier than other beef? Prime is a designation given by the USDA and is a label that producers can choose to pursue, to distinguish their meat from lower-quality products. However, in the case of USDA meat grades, “quality” refers to the amount of flavor, the juiciness, and the tenderness of the meat. It has absolutely nothing to...

Your Morning Avocado is Killing This Beautiful Endangered Species

Your Morning Avocado is Killing This Beautiful Endangered Species

Follow a few food bloggers on Instagram and you will find the world’s latest obsession everywhere: avocados. While full to the brim with potassium, heart-healthy fats and fiber, the avocado’s effect on the world is not always net positive, especially when it comes to avocados from Mexico. This newest foodie trend is threatening an ancient yearly migration of monarch butterflies. Each year, millions of monarch butterflies migrate from their summer mating and feeding grounds in the United States and Canada and make the arduous 3,000-mile (4,828-kilometer) journey south to central Mexico where their winter roosting forests are. If you visit the...
