What meat is cheaper than chicken? I mean some chicken parts are more favored than others, but it's still chicken.

I suppose it could be some sort of filler material. It would still have to be cheap. Even plain old raw fiber is not that cheap.


Soy stuff...they say it is only a small percentage; the tests show it to me much larger than what they admit.

It's not meat. There are ways to process other parts of animals, including the bones, to use as "fillers" and "stretchers". As mentioned, plant based products can also be used, as well as full on artificially created chemical concoctions.

Lots.

But usually they're not used in what you might term "people food."

Probably soy protein. It's very cheap.

Now, does the report say whether that's a total or a per sandwich thing? You can put soy protein in ground meat easy as you please. You can't do that in whole meat, like chicken breast.

Potted meat is cheap but it's mostly
made of chicken and pork. All protein,
no carbs. High in fat. A 3oz can is 38
cents at Walmart. Salty, it's good on
crackers or a sandwich. You can make
a meal for two people with 2 cans,
2 eggs, 10oz of cooked pasta. Mix
all ingredients and bake for 20 min.
Costs around a buck.
If you take a risk, you may lose. If you never take a risk, you will always lose.

There's a seaweed based additive used to help whole pieces of meat, like chicken breasts, hold more water, thereby looking bigger and weighing more.

Of the dubious kind of stuff, I have a weak spot for ham salad. The rest, like potted meat, I can no longer eat. Well, actually, as a hunter, no way can you totally say no to vienna sausages.

Trivia question: what is the correct way to get vienna sausages out of the can?

they come out with a flick of the wrist
