Abstract
Recent reports of problem foods in Mainland China have raised global concerns about the safety of Chinese food products. Drawing on reliable data extracted from Chinese newspapers, magazines and the Internet, this report, the second in the series, takes a closer look at the hair-made soy sauce, a common kitchen-accessory for marinating and seasoning foods. It seeks to inform the scientific and medical communities regarding the potential short- and long-term epidemic consequences of consuming such soy sauce

Because the human hair was gathered from salon, barbershop and hospitals around the country, it was unhygienic and mixed with condom, used hospital cottons, used menstrual cycle pad, used syringe, etc

Chinese. Eat everything with four legs except a chair, eats anything that flies except an airplane, and eats anything that swims except a submarine.

I should know, I've got some Chinese blood in me.

The technicians admitted that they would not consume the human-hair soy sauce because the dirty and unhygienic hair was used to make amino acid syrup ( 1, 2 ). A quality monitoring staff also revealed that though the hair may not be toxic itself, it definitely consisted of bacteria and other micro-organisms ( 1 ).

DO NOT TRUST CHINESE FOOD PRODUCTS!

Read labels for country of origin! I do. For everything. Chinese does not make it into the shopping cart. Japanese I trust, Korean - mostly, Taiwanese - almost Chinese.

That includes all that inexpensive garlic and fish seen in stores. There is NO way to tell how it was produced.

Let's listen in on two guys on lunch break at the local Chinese restaurant...

Joe Bob (digging in on some chow mein):
"Billy Ray, toss me that new soy sauce if you ain't gonna try it."

Billy Ray (sliding Joe Bob the soy sauce):
"Hir, sute yourself"

OMG

The journalists then found the amino acid syrup manufacturer (a bioengineering company) in Hubei province. When asking how the amino acid syrup (or powder) was generated, the manufacturer replied that the powder was generated from human hair. Because the human hair was gathered from salon, barbershop and hospitals around the country, it was unhygienic and mixed with condom, used hospital cottons, used menstrual cycle pad, used syringe, etc.

"Shades of Fish Sauce! (You don't wanna know, believe me.)"

Properly made fish sauce is terrific. You might not like the process used to make it, but it sure tastes good.

By the way, did you know that Worchestershire sauce is actually a fermented fish sauce? The fish are anchovies. Read the label.

I kinda doubt too much of this particular variety of "soy" sauce made it over here, but it makes me rather glad I'm a bit of a snob where soy sauce is concerned and don't like stuff with ingredients I don't recognize right off...

I did one time - not Lea & Perrins (their ingredients used to not be listed), but an off-brand - and I found that intriguing. I wonder what makes the fish taste go away - the fermenting, maybe? Or the other stuff in there?

Regardless, I love the stuff.

I'm not really sure. Actually, I'm a big fan of anchovies, so a sauce that tastes like anchovies is not a problem for me. I make a great anchovy aioli. The combination of garlic and anchovies is great.

In reality, anchovies are a small part of Worchestershire sauce, but they're in there, and it is a fermented sauce. I'm sure it originated in India, since it also includes tamarind. The British colonials in India brought a lot of good things back from India.

Try Crosse and Blackwell's Major Grey's Chutney on pork chops or lamb. It's the best thing since sliced bread. But make sure it's Crosse and Blackwell's. All others are inferior.
