True, and if I am paying $5.00 a pound for 93% lean ground beef, it better be ground beef and not a bunch of filler. Its fraud to pawn off ammonia and scraps and charge $5.00 a pound for it!
Pink slime is only ground beef carried to an extreme. What you get isn’t “ammoniated” any more than the cookies that are commercially baked with ammonium bicarbonate leavening. (Whose practical use is pretty much restricted to tightly controlled commercial baking processes. Home ovens don’t always succeed in driving out the ammonia and the result comes out as nasty as you’d think.)
