8 Foods You Didn’t Know Contain Meat

in Overall Health by

I have plenty of friends and family that don’t eat meat. This might make them a little mad that they’ve been living a lie but they’ll surely be thankful for the info.

Altoids:

These mints contain gelatin made from the collagen inside animal’s skin and bones.

BBQ Baked Lays:

You should probably stay away from this chemical sh*t storm in the first place but if you need a little more motivation you might like to know that they contain “natural flavors” which include chicken.

Minute Maid Juice

Minute Maid’s fortified juice line contains Vitamin D. Awesome, right? Yeah, except for the fact that vitamin D is derived from lanolin which is an oil secreted by sheep.

Velveeta

Kraft has confirmed that many of their products contain animal enzymes from calf stomachs. Yum.

Smarties

The purple smarties are dyed using carmine, which comes from cochineals (beetle-like insects). I guess using something like beet juice is far too expensive.

Guiness

Guinness is often praised for it’s smoothness.  However, several investigations proved that Guinness ingredients are quite disturbing. The beer contains isinglass, an ingredient which comes from fish bladder.

Worcestershire Sauce

To me, there’s always been something mysteriously suspect about this sauce. It turns out that this zesty black juice contains anchovies! I knew it!

Parmesan Cheese

Parmesan cheese requires rennet in the curdling process. The only problem? Rennet is made from stomachs of slaughtered, unweaned, newborn calves.
