All I ask of food is that it doesn’t harm me..(1/31)

Title: Quote, Michael Palin

The first of these links is to an article entitled “What’s in Fast Food Chicken? (Hint: It’s NOT Chicken)”.  This is quite an interesting little article, including the ingredients on McDonald’s chicken; it also says that only 50% of the “chicken” is actually chicken. It might shock you to see the ingredients list’s length.

The second is to an article entitled “Taco Bell Sued Over Mystery Beef Ingredients”. Apparently, a law firm found that only 35% of Taco Bell’s “beef” is actually beef. The lawsuit is bringing into question whether or not Taco Bell is using “forbidden ingredients” in the things they serve.

    A good pair of links, Mary Margaret, and well contextualized. I like the Michael Palin quotation, but what exactly does it imply? I am unable to find the line in context, so I can’t tell how seriously he means the statement to be taken (though given that he was a member of Monty Python, I suspect not very). I at least expect more from my food than a simple lack of poison; I want stuff that is both tasty and good for me. Taking Palin’s idea as a baseline, what exactly can we, as consumers, demand from our food?
