Chef Jamie Oliver has just won a battle against the largest chain of junk food in the world. Once Oliver demonstrated how hamburgers are made, McDonald’s, the franchisor announced that it will change the recipe.
According to Oliver, the fatty parts of the meat are “washed” with # ammonia # hydroxide and then used in the preparation of the meat ‘cake’ to fill the hamburger. Before this process, according to the presenter, and that meat was not suitable for human consumption.
Oliver, radical activist chef, who has assumed a war against the food industry, says: we are talking about meats that have been sold as #food for # dogs and after this process humans are served. Apart from the quality of the meat, ammonium hydroxide is harmful to health. Oliver says to this: “The Process of Pink Pigsty”.
What human being in their right mind would put a piece of meat soaked in ammonium hydroxide in the mouth of a child?
In another of his initiatives Oliver showed how chicken nuggets are made: After selecting the ‘best parts’, the rest: fat, skin, cartilage, viscera, bones, head, legs, are subjected to a liquefied mechanical separation is the euphemism that engineers use in food, and then that paste pink by the blood, is deodorized, discolored, reodorized and repainted, weathered in deep-fried marshmallow and fried, this is reboiled in oils generally partially hydrogenated, that is, toxic.
In #USA, #BurgerKing and #TacoBell have already abandoned the use of ammonia in their products. The food industry uses ammonium hydroxide as an anti-microbial agent, which has allowed McDonald’s to use meat in its burgers, which is unfit for human consumption.
But even more annoying is the situation that these ammonium hydroxide-based substances are considered ‘legitimate components in production processes’ in the food industry with the blessings of health authorities around the world. So consumers will never be able to find out what chemicals they put in our food.
