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. :)

Awesome. :) I always forget about the 'work disposal' option. :P

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.
