"This white powder sold by the kilo, is the meat industry's dirty little secret. It's called "meat glue." It makes pieces of beef, lamb, chicken or fish that would normally be thrown out stick together so closely that it looks like a solid piece of meat."

Meatglue - Gluing meat together

Meat Glue

Meat Glue Copenhagen


70% of ALL Beef and Chicken has been treated with Carbon Monoxide Gas. It makes bad meat look good even though it may have spoiled. The practice of treating meat with carbon monoxide could hide thegrowth of pathogens such as Clostridium Botulinum, Salmonella and E. coli O157:H7.

'Meat glue' approval draws criticism

February 10, 2010

Sweden's approval of thrombin - a new so-called meat glue, has drawn criticism from consumer groups and politicians alike who fear that consumers stand to be misled.

Meat: Ready for its Close-Up

by Michelle Greenhalgh | Mar 11, 2010

Last week, all but one of the European Union nations voted in favor of using Thrombian, or Transglutaminase (TG), otherwise known as Meat Glue, or to some Meat Make-Up.

Thrombian is an enzyme that catalyzes covalent bonds between free amine groups and gamma-caroxminid groups of protein or peptide bond gluatamine.

"Meat glue" sounds kind of awesome

Maggie Koerth-Baker at 5:26 PM Wednesday, Mar 30, 2011.

Trouble is: I kind of think meat glue sounds pretty cool. I like the fact that we've found new ways to use scraps and parts of meat that aren't sell-able on their own. That alone is nothing new. Humans have been doing that for centuries (See: sausage, soup stock). Transglutaminase—meat glue's real name—is just a newer tool.

Meat Glue?

Of course, this is not true if the meat is glued together for there are lots of outer surfaces inside of the meat that are not being cooked, thus you have increased your chances of getting food poisoning.

Meat Glue — industry secret exposed
March 30, 2011 · 10:01 am
Miriam Kresh, from Green

Restaurants and butchers can now sell their scraps as premium meat. Good way to use them up – and charge premium prices for them too. Best of all, you don’t have to tell the customer. Once the glued meat is cooked, even professional butchers can’t tell the difference.

“Meat glue” is transglutaminase, an enzyme in powder form, derived from beef and pork blood plasma

We do respect the hard work of the authors of the publications and the copyright. We show only a very short quote from each article and the link to the original publication. There are much more articles about this problem and you can easily find them. We just wanted to point you to this problem.

Just reviewed all these videos today. Look scary for me. Angry I recalled my last trip to my nearest store where I saw these long packages of meat. These pork packages were suspiciously cheap. I remember how this meat looks like when I cut it, and it doesn't look like one piece. But I trusted this store. I think I will make a photo of the package and post it here when I visit this store again. I'd like to get a second opinion.
