Pink Slime

Whats everyone's thoughts on the pink slime they are putting into hamburger. I think I am buying organic from now on and just eat less of it. I don't want my body full of amonium hydroxide.

Yeah I'd say that's a good option. Not ready to go veg but my wife is a nutritionist and I've read way to much to enjoy my old diet.

This documentary offers some insight. I started buying organic after this, especially after the ammonia bit.

I eat hamburger that's ground at a local store. I was invited to a cookout though a couple of years ago where someone used Wal-Mart ground "beef." Nobody said anything but no matter how much ketchup and mustard you put on those burgers you still knew you were eating crap.

I wonder if Jamie Oliver was more upset that it was trimmings "that no one wants", or that it is sprayed with ammonia solution to kill off bacteria? Can't tell if they took his quote out of context.

I guess the big thing is that no one was surprised fast food chains have always used it (which I thought people knew), but no one was aware that it is used in allegedly 70% of US processed ground beef.

I work for the Department of Ag and while I don't do much with the actual processed portion of the meat and food, I do see a huge differance between 'organic' and 'natural' or local.

I think the biggest thing is knowing where your food comes from. IMHO, just mine, organic is a load of BS, organic farmers are some of the worst farmers out there. They think that just because something is 'organic' or 'green' means that it causes zero harm. What they don't realize that even an organic compound can be harmful once it meets a certain threashold, no differant than anything else. My father in law and I raise beef and ocassionally hogs, we process our own venison, and all that. We're not organic, we'll give a sick calf some anti-biotics if and only if it needs it, but we're local, and consider ourselves pretty 'natural'

So, just my .02c and not trying to offend anyone. Don't buy into the big prices of organic just to avoid the pink slime, you can easily get something not filled with pink slime that won't kill you at a much cheaper price by just looking at local farmers.

I just eat. I will look at ingredients now and if it says mechanically separated anything I will usually bypass it if I can. Hot Dogs(the non penis type) are delicious though.

I really try to follow the 100 mile diet. Having worked with MDA for nearly 9 years I've come to know most of the farmers in my area and like to support them. This really helps to make sure I'm getting clean fruits and vegetables and healthy meat, all while supporting my local economy.

agreed. I'm pretty big into gardening and the mis-use of the word "organic" just drives me crazy. Read below:

"There is a conflict between definitions and scientific facts. The problem is that “organic” is not defined by ecologists or scientists – it is defined by bureaucrats, by government functionaries who often don’t have a clue what they are talking about from a purely scientific point of view and are often making decisions for special interest groups including organizations that put up a lot of money to twist the rules in their favor. ‘Organic’ has become big business.

The rules that define ‘organic’ vary from place to place. European rules that define ‘organic’ are significantly different from the rules in the United States. Canada has its own rules and many states in the US have different rules. Within the United States there is the NOP (National Organic Program) from the US department of Agriculture, there is OMRI (Organic Materials Review Institute), there is CCOF (California Certified Organic Farmers) to name a few… and there are many more regulatory groups. Their rules are not the same and their definitions are not scientific. They tend to be well meaning, non-scientific, closed minded groups that ‘know better’ and will apply their views to all who wish to use the term to make money.

On the other hand, when “organic” is looked at scientifically it’s really about protecting the environment and making more wholesome products – that’s what it should mean. But the bureaucrats and special interest groups have set different definitions. Fortunes are being made by companies selling weak and often ineffective products, and sometimes even harmful products, to a largely uneducated marketplace.

As a scientist I find value in both mineral and organic ingredients – and I am really looking at products from the point of view of what works better; what grows plants better, what gives customers higher quality and larger yields and what reduces the strain on the planet. That may or may not be ‘organic.’

Fundamental to the US ‘organic’ regulations is that purified ingredients cannot be used to make fertilizers; all ingredients need to be in their natural form … with some exceptions passed for special interests. This has led to some ‘organic’ ingredients having high levels of ‘heavy metals’ and sometimes pathogenic organisms such as E. coli and salmonella bacteria (this happens with mined ingredients and poorly composted materials that contain manures or other dead animal ingredients). If the poisons are removed, the product is no longer ‘organic.’ I consider this completely absurd.

One positive note is that fertilizer regulations in many places now require manufacturers to have their products tested for ‘heavy metals.’ This is a case where the rules provide the consumer some measure of protection from dangerous produce. I find that many state regulations for fertilizers are in fact very good rules offering the consumer assurance of product quality and consistency. Many of the state regulators I have worked with for years consider the ‘organic’ rules absurd. Nonetheless, rules are rules and regulators must apply the rules whether they like them or not, that’s their job. For more info see: www.aapfco.org.

I’m in my 32nd year in this business and I take the word “organic” very seriously. I’ve worked very hard in the field of modern plant growing technologies, always from a scientific point of view. If ‘organic’ was always based on good science and consistently resulted in better and healthier produce, faster growth rates and higher yields, as well as less impact on soil and water, I would be much happier about the definitions."

A farm can be certified organic and use 80% of the pesticides used on a typical non-organic farm.

'green' is my favorite un-defined term that everyone uses.
