  1. Default Vegetarian Confusion


    I went to the supermarket tonight. In my constant desire for health food these days, I buy 93/7 lean turkey patties (for those that don't know, this means 93% meat and 7% fat). I didn't really look at the label because hey - 93/7 right?

    But then I got home and actually read the label which described the product having "no animal by-product" and being a "Vegetarian Choice". How can it be a vegetarian choice if it's turkey? I know I didn't buy tofurky because it doesn't say tofurky anywhere on the package. So how can it be turkey and vegetarian? I'm completely lost. Did I buy pink slime?

    EDIT: Turkey Conundrum is solved

    I....what....no.

    I don't even understand how you could market turkey as vegetarian unless someone is really dumb.

    Im pretty sure you bought regular turkey and just caught some stupid marketing ploy that people try.

    Then again, MURRIKA.

    Vegetarian ground turkey is meant to be a replacement for ground turkey itself. It is processed and flavored slightly differently than vegetarian ground beef.

    Isn't there a list of ingredients on the label?

    Also, trying to remember the name of the SF classic in which all meat is carved off some kind of mutant ever-growing chicken, or something of the sort. Probably by Pohl and Kornbluth, but my brain refuses to work at this early hour.

    Maybe the verbiage isn't talking specifically about the Turkey, but for their line of products?

  11. Default Re: Vegetarian Confusion


    Okay, I read this thread too quickly. 97/3 doesn't make any sense to a vegetarian product unless, again, it jokingly refers to a lighter composition of the product. Even that doesn't make much sense but neither does spending $8 on a bland meat substitute.

    idk about that, but I've seen Kosher (and vegetarian) "bacon bits".
    Same principle as non-dairy coffee creamer.
    Fake everything.

    I'm a fan of the cow that wants to be eaten at The Restaurant at the End of the Universe.

    I always wonder why some "vegetarians" eat fish, but w/e. I'm going to assume the label was trying to use "vegetarian" as a synonym for healthy. English fail

    I think you should take a pic of that meat package of yours Fiel. Then we can either become more confused or find something that might lead to an answer.

    There's different levels of being a "vegetarian" you could say.
    Allowing the eating of seafood and such is called Pescatarian...the literal definition of that being "one whose diet includes fish but no meat".

  17. Default Re: Vegetarian Confusion


    Maybe they meant that the turkey was raised on only vegetable feed, eg grain not feed containing other animal components.

    More real than you think.

    If this goes well, they can produce tissues that have the exact same properties as meat without killing a single thing. If anything, borrow some DNA and that's it.

    Now make sure you didn't get something from the future. The real expiration date may not match.

  19. Default Re: Vegetarian Confusion


    How can it be vegetarian-friendly if it claims to be 93% meat?

  20. Default Re: Vegetarian Confusion


    Wait, so now we have to worry about real-fake fake-real future time traveling meat?
