Food technology has come a long way since the creation of the first ready meal, but in some cases there are times when the process has gone too far, when convenience overrides good taste and the food that is produced is just plain wrong.
Don’t be confused by the word loaf here, this has nothing to do with bread. Instead think about a boiled egg that is shaped like salami, a tubular form of perfectly round egg white with a centre of creamy yellow yolk. Sounds perfectly natural doesn’t it? You know that in the creation of this product eggs have been boiled, separated out into whites and yolks and then mushed up together and processed into one of the weirdest, easy to slice foods you will ever see, well that’s what we hope happens anyway though there is no proof that actually eggs are involved. Strangely enough this is a product that is only available in Japan.
A Whole Chicken – In a Can
Is it too hard to pop to the supermarket pick up a fresh chicken and throw it into the oven? Or even pick up a freshly roasted one from the deli counter? Apparently it is, which is why a whole chicken in a can was invented. It sounds like salmonella poisoning just waiting to happen, as this is a whole raw chicken, packed in with some gelatinous gloop that is apparently ready to cook, and although it does not come with giblets the instructions state that by spooning out the gloop that fills the chicken’s cavity you can make a delicious gravy to accompany the chicken. I think not.
In an effort to encourage the world to eat more ketchup Heinz decided that the condiment should be available in a range of colours. Apparently tomato coloured tomato ketchup was a little too boring and the product needed to be brought up to date. A range of coloured ketchups were developed in green, purple, pink, blue and orange. For a while kids loved it because it made their parent recoil in horror when they squeezed out slime coloured ketchup all over their dinners, but the popularity didn’t last long and thankfully the coloured condiments were shelved.
Ever wished that the meal went on just that little bit longer? That there was something else you could eat to really fill you up? Well how about munching down on your dinner plate? Perhaps you simply don’t like doing the dishes and an edible dinner service will save you from getting dishpan hands. These 21st century plates have been developed using the cassava plant, this plant is so versatile that it is used as animal feed and to treat ailments such as irritable bowel syndrome, diarrhoea and malaria, and now apparently dinner plates. One thing to be aware of though is that if not properly processed the cassava can cause paralysis of the legs, just something to be aware of as you start nibbling around the edges of your 21st century eco plate.
