The fast-food chain Taco Bell revealed the ingredients of its mystery meat. This can’t be too surprising, can it? I expect fast food to have ingredients like this. I think the public/media is too hard on Taco Bell and fast food chains, and I think it’s unfair to single out Taco Bell. Fast food isn’t just fast, it’s cheap, and with that cheapness comes a certain quality.
What outrages me is that the food in our grocery stores contains ingredients like these. Every product uses soy lecithin as an emulsifier. And every product has some kind of variant of corn. So we’re getting plenty of GMOs in places we’d least expect it, so why worry about getting it somewhere we would expect it–like fast food?
Taco Bell can work on its waffle taco though. (Just want to point out that I don’t eat fast food. This pic was from a friend.)
