Frankly, most of the non-meat fillers listed in the article are less poisonous than the portion of the filling that is 'real' beef. Anyone who thinks adding MORE of that garbage meat would improve the quality of the food is a fool. You'd need better beef before I even considered wanting more of it.

I absolutely love taco bell, but I don't eat there more than once a month, nope.

yukichigai: ne2d: Well, fortunately, soon this law firm will be ten million dollars richer, the class members will be provided with a URL where they can go to print off a coupon for $1 off their next purchase of a Taco Bell taco, Taco Bell's ads will have a tiny asterisk next to the word "beef," and the world will be a far better place.

I will sue if they do that, because that asterisk will be a cruel reminder of what my anus used to look like before I started eating at Taco Bell.

What the unwitting should know is that at a vast majority (at least on the east coast) of Taco Bell portions are spiked with 8 ppm methylenedioxy pseudopropylamphetamine. Just to give you that taco boost to crave more for the next midnight sojourn.

Well it was taco bell so i'm talking squirts. The loud, hot, watery kind that burns. This one time I was smoking with a group of friends in this girls apartment. We got taco bell and I ate it so fast I didn't even remember finishing it (or maybe that was because I was stoned). Anyway I had a crush on one of the guys there and I was trying to talk to him about science fiction books to get his interest and then I had to poop really bad. Anyway, the bathroom was in the next room and you could imagine how embarrassed I was when I had the squirts.

SpinStopper: It's called TVP (Textured Vegetable Protein) and it's found in a lot of Mexican-American fast food. Hell, a lot of fast food, period.

My folks had a Taco John's (realistically about 10x better than Taco Bell) in the 70's, and TVP was part of the meat mixture. Oddly enough, we didn't die from it ;)


Well, that's the irony. By itself, TVP is a fat-free, high protein soy product. Shouldn't that make Taco Bell a health food??

Where does the fat in these cheap meat products even come from? Do they just buy up pure meat fat from the meat processing plant and render it in with the TVP to make it taste more like meat? Was that really necessary?

I ate at Taco Bell a few weeks ago, after many, many, many beers and trust me, that 'meat' is 50% carrot, once it ends up in the toilet bowl.

Is it just me or would you rather have the cheese sitting on the meat so it melts?

It looks better with the cheese on top of the lettuce.

I've never eaten at that place but I looked up a picture of their tacos, it's true. A big slice of American cheese on a taco? That's farked up. As for Taco Bell I don't care if they make them with ground up cats, they're good.

Panty Sniffer: Fett56: I've heard that mcdonalds uses a lot of soy in their "beef", but some quick research claims that it is 100% all beef with no fillers. Anyone know the truth?

It is 100% beef.


The thing about being McDonald's is it's the biggest fast-food brand, practically a national symbol, and the biggest target for fast food critics. They have the wealth and market power to avoid some criticisms (and potential legislation) by simply spending what it takes to actually be good in areas where lower-visibility brands might cut corners. I wouldn't be surprised if meat suppliers are more afraid of McDonald's than they are of the USDA.

Where's the beef?

I admit that it looks like fish pellets made of wax, but it's not unhealthy. On the contrary, except for the 36% that is beef, its almost entirely textured vegetable protein (TVP), aka soybean byproduct.

Soylent red is textured vegetable protein!

Just doesn't roll off the tongue the same way.

I've got a bag of it around here some where. It makes a good additive because it soaks up the sauce, gravy, or whatever and thus picks up the flavour. On the other hand, if you don't add some meat and flavour, it's like wax fish pellets.

Which brings us back to Doh!

It would be better to eat genuine Asian tofu. This is just soya bean by-product and lacks the fermentation products that are health-promoting in miso and such traditional products.

Pretty sad, isn't it, when you'd be better fed if the Chinese made your food. It's full of leaden goodness.

Marla Singer's Laundry: LittleBlondeJug: Abox: Article makes an important distinction not made clear in the headline. 'How much actual beef is in Taco Bell food?' is not quite as alarming as 'how much actual beef is in Taco Bell 'beef'. Taco Bell food includes tortillas, lettuce, etc.

So, nothing but meat would be 100%, but the 36% number means that the other 64% is taco shell, cheese, lettuce...

Huh?

No sir. Here at MarlaJug's Tacos, we have 100% beef in our tacos.

And the sauce is warm, thick and pectin-free.


If im in a hurry, can I get a to go box?

And a...uh...friend wanted to know what was the company's policy on double beef tacos.
