DailyDirt: Sketchy Meats For Sale

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

A lot of vegetarians were likely inspired by The Jungle (the novel about the meat packing industry), but a lot has changed in the field of meat since the early 1900s. However, transparency about how animals are treated before they're served onto dinner plates could perhaps use a little more work. Here are just a few recent stories that are starting to gross out some meat-eating Americans. By the way, StumbleUpon can also recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

    Wikipedia says "Umami represents the taste of the amino acid L-glutamate and 5-ribonucleotides such as guanosine monophosphate (GMP) and inosine monophosphate (IMP)."

    The receptors don't only detect MSG, they detect glutamate. MSG is just the way they do industrial production of glutamic acid.
