What In The World Does Ground Beef Added Natural Flavors Mean?
0

10 posts in this topic

The title pretty much says it all. What does ground beef added natural flavors mean on a label? This is the first I have seen of this. I thought that ground beef was ground beef. I know it's not wheat in there but why on earth would they add something to ground beef and what could it possibly be. For those of us that are watchign corn and soy, this is getting harder and harder.

I'm sure you will get answers that they are gluten or radioactive ore from Mars but, according to the US govt, there shouldn't be any gluten in them as spices, oils, etc cannot contain a grain and oleoresin is made from fir trees ( yum :( )

http://www.fsis.usda.gov/help/faqs_flavorings/index.asp

"What substances or ingredients can be listed as "natural flavor," "flavor," or "flavorings" rather than by a specific common or usual name?

Spices (e.g., black pepper, basil, and ginger), spice extracts, essential oils, oleoresins, onion powder, garlic powder, celery powder, onion juice, and garlic juice are all ingredients that may be declared on labeling as "natural flavor," "flavor," or "flavoring." Spices, oleoresins, essential oils, and spice extracts are listed in the Food and Drug Administration regulations."

Maybe they have come up with a different name for pink slime? Whatever it is, I wouldn't buy it.

I already bought it. I guess i'll throw 13 dollars of ground beef away...jeez....This is from a national chain grocery store which also happens to be the only grocery store in my town. I'm going to have to drive to Costco for my beef now.

Bart, I bet you are right...a new name for pink slime. Costco has some organic beef. I guess i'll go buy some of that.

Karen, thanks for looking that up! Makes sense.

Fir trees....omg...wtf.........i'm rolling laughing at that...It's not really funny but it is...

You get your " pure ground beef" and go out your door and get some of that sticky stuff the deers lick, off your pine trees! Add it to your ground beef. You don't need other to add it.

In all seriousness, it is safe from a gluten stand point.

If you really aren't going to eat it, consider 'freecycle' (you can advertize it as dog food), or throw it on the lawn for birds.

I am going to send it with my husband to take to work. Thats what I do with all of the foods that I buy and don't want. Those guys are like vultures. They eat anything. :)

Incredible! They are just like the airport people. An airport waitress told me, people who eat here don't care what they eat so long as it's food :rolleyes:

Normally it is sage oil that they add to it. I researched it after i ate some. Got a really bad bellyache from it.

    • It might not be Celiac, if your tests are negative.  Have you been to a doctor and been tested for diabetes or thyroid issues lately?  What are your parents doing about your issues?  Some things like acne and shin splints might be explained by age or activity, but passing out and depression need to be addressed.
    • I will visit  Johannesburg  international airport, is there any gluten free food available? The so called customer service office did not answer my question! So I am taking it to the forum. If you know of any restaurants inside the airport please let me know.  
    • I will visit Beijing international airport, is there any gluten free food available? The so called customer service office did not answer my question! So I am taking it to the forum. If you know of any restaurants inside the airport please let me know.  
    • Instead of going to my doctor I went to theranos to get a celiac blood test done. Doctors never seem to want to hear about you diagnosing yourself so I decided against going to the doctor . So my symptoms are/were being bloated after eating, stomach pain, constipation, also diahrea (my poop is always green ik tmi), bad anxiety, depression, irritability, insomnia and anger after consuming a big meal of gluten, I also have a rash on my right leg below my butt I don't think it's dh tho, I'm always thirsty (like I can't get enough water), dizzy spells (fainting and blacking out), my left side of my face tingles (could do with anxiety), my face also feels hot after consuming gluten, I have acne, hip pain and shin inflammation, back pain, and dandruff. My theranos results came back negative with everything ranging from 0-3 so it was super low. I had the celiac panal done. Well anyways I thought maybe it's wrong and went off gluten anyways. This is my 6 day gluten free and my symptoms haven't resolved at all really. My bloating has lessened a tiny bit but I still get bloated after every meal. And im constipated all the time. My poop stopped being green though. I'm not eating dairy right now either. I'm also having worse anxiety and am still depressed. If Im gluten sensitive shouldn't I be feeling better by now? I also live in a house with gluten eating people sense im only 15 but I try hard not to cross contaminate. I eat lots of veggies  (Kale and salads) and lots of nuts and beans and indulge salmon and tuna a few times a week and eat quinoa every morning for breakfast. I'm scared I'm not gluten sensitive and I don't know what to do. 
    • Hello! My daughter was diagnosed with Celiac non-biopsied about 6 months ago. When I recently went for my physical, I mentioned to my PCP that my daughter was Celiac, she said that I need to be tested. I took a blood test that day and here are the results: Anti-Gliadin IgA                     Gliadin Ab(s) IgA - 18.23U/ml    -      Standard Range: 0-15 U/ml   - Result: Positive My PCP told me to start a gluten-free diet right away and she will re-test again in 6 months. I was expecting a full panel, like my daughter had, not sure if it is necessary or not. We elected not to put my daughter through a biopsy, as she was just recovering from a ruptured appendix and her GI Dr. agreed that he numbers were so high that she was fairly certain w/o biopsy that she was Celiac. My DD feels so much better. Do you think this test is enough for me to start the gluten-free diet? I actually have cut way back on gluten, as I somewhat eat what my daughter eats. So my test may have reflected that decrease. Should I ask for more testing? Is this test sufficient? Thanks for any assistance!!
