  • This Old Housewife

    Consumers are ALREADY buying meatless meat–just look at the wide array of tofu-based products, “field roast”, as well as nut-based burgers, cheeses, and condiments. Can’t find any of this stuff? Go peruse your local health food store, where they’re clinging to the old low-fat/no meat mantra for health.

    You’re sure to find eggs, milk, and other animal protein-based products fed a vegetarian diet–that’s code for SOY.

    Also, this may freak people out, but ordinary frozen pizzas and microwave burritos have ground soy as their so-called “meat”, and the FDA lets them get away with it! I’m sure other frozen foods also contain soy, like pot pies, entrees like lasagne, and maybe even TV dinners too.

    Aside from the “meat replacement” aspect of soy, it’s also being used as an all-purpose protein replacement–take a look at the Atkins products, any food supplement billed as “high protein” (protein powders, bars, shakes, Soylent, etc.), so-called “soy milk”, and even oil for canned fish products (turn the can over to see what oil the fish is packed in if you don’t believe me).

    Then we have soy-based cushions for furniture (http://www.brighthub.com/environment/green-living/articles/72118.aspx), soy-based clothing, and even soy-based cosmetics and health & beauty items!

    Some people are so intolerant of animal products, that they’ve gone to great lengths to poison themselves with this 3-letter KILLER.
