Posted on 02/27/2014 7:01:11 PM PST by PaulCruz2016
Spanish researchers have developed a gourmet sausage made from baby poop. Yes, baby poop.
More specifically, theyve used a strain of bacteria derived from infant feces.
Writing in the journal Meat Science, the scientists described how they took 43 fecal samples from infant diapers provided by parent and midwife volunteers. Using three strains of probiotic bacteria they isolated from the dirty diapers, the investigators cooked up several batches of pork that resembled a type of fermented Mediterranean sausage known as feut.
Experts said it is not nearly as revolting as it sounds.

yeah....not into caprophagia
Note to self: If I ever visit Spain, DO NOT order the sausage.
I’ll stick to the readily recognizable bacon thanks.
Watching legislation being formed is like watching sausage being made: Not for the faint-hearted.
That metaphor is enhanced by this new discovery.
I understand what they’re doing in collecting bacteria for culture but they might be better off keeping quiet about it.
I’m starting to be scared of food.
Only God knows what’s in it.
Back to the vegetables for me!
Just be glad you aren’t an elephant. Their first solid food is mamma crap.
They don’t have the necessary bacteria in their gut to digest the grasses and leaves they eat as adults so they get it from poop.
“Back to the vegetables for me!”
Even vegetables have been genetically altered. Stick to heritage garden seeds.
For someone to even contemplate this, let alone making, displaying, serving and eating the results is seriously sick and needs intensive psychotherapy. Yuck!
Who even comes up with ideas like this?
This goofy ass story stinks.
I am actually sorry I read this ...
Its not as bad as it sounds. They collected the bacteria and made a clean culture from it. Considering where eggs and milk come from this isn’t so bad.
Please pass the tofu.
And by “pass” I mean..
I don't pay much attention to "experts" these days.
In this case, how did they become experts? EW!
Wow...there is actually a poop sausage expert job? I doubt I want my kids studying for those types of Obama positions.
