Ignorance is bliss, comes to mind
I saw on tv once long agao, about corn meal and flour having ground insect parts in it. Because food is a natural product, mainly handled by machine it probaby has a lot bug parts, and other unappatizing thing sn it, even when grow it at home,a nd carefully handle our food theres no guarentee it's as clean as we like to think.
Makes sense, but still nasty to think about. The one that really stood out was the tomato juice, because I like V8. Equivalent of a small juice glass of fly eggs mmm good.
"Tomato juice, for example, may average “10 or more fly eggs per 100 grams [the equivalent of a small juice glass] or five or more fly eggs and one or more maggots.”
Yeah, I love it when people get super worried and wonder if the chef or whoever is wearing gloves when their food is prepared and what not. If they only knew what is probably in there to begin with they'd not be worried!
I guess most people don't sit there and think about the fact that food grows out of dirt, or what dirt is. Or that mass machines don't lovingly pick each strawberry or green bean and nobody really checks every single cob of corn for bugs or worms before that corn gets taken off the cob!
In Korea, we made tea from water in the river where dead bodies were floating by. Shucks, any food in the Americas is heavenly, even when burnt!
Yeah, the maggot things bothers me, I didn't want to know that.
Given the conditions some people in the world have to eat and drink, I think your right, really it's nothing to worry about. John the baptist ate locuts. so? And as you've said, there are worse things thne insect parts in the food.
I don't like mustard, but there's no telling what's in other things we eat or drink. I'm not a beer drinker (could never get past the stench or the awful taste) but I once read a story about a guy in a beer brewery who disappeared. One day someone found one of his fingers in a bottle of beer.
He had apparently fallen into a vat and been nearly disintegrated in the extreme heat. Only that one finger was ever found.
I read once on the Internet...someone had a relative who worked in a tomato products processing plant. This person said the only difference between the national brand tomato products and the cheaper, store brand tomato products was the amount of tomato worms that got ground up in it along with the tomatoes. National brand...less tomato worms, cheaper stuff...more tomato worms.
Is my food less chewy?.....Not unless I forget to put my teeth in.
My food gets very chewy when I don't cook it long enough.
