Jimmy answers:

I sell the Now Fresh brand in my shop. It is an excellent food. Very good quality and highly recommended. It's one of the better foods on the market.

You should also look into a food called Ziwi Peak. It's made in New Zealand and is amazing stuff. Very expensive though.

Jenny asks…

what are hot dogs made of? what is in them?

Jimmy answers:

Wow, do so many people really not know what’s in hot dogs? I know there are lots of jokes about how scary they’re supposed to be — “lips and ****oles” being the joke in my family — but those are jokes!

There are no eyeballs in hot dogs, for one thing, and intestines are only used for “natural casing” hot dogs, to give them that snap when you bite into a cooked dog. Also, natural casing usually come from an animal with narrower intestines, like sheep, rather than pigs which have wider intestines. And any intestines used in ready-to-cook food sold in the United States have been thoroughly cleaned and often sterilized (like milk and juice are pasteurized) before being sent to the store.

Here is the Wikipedia article on “mechanically separated meat”: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mechanically_separated_meat
As you can see, no testicles, guts or even liver are in this mechanically-separated meat, both since it has to be attached directly to bone and because any part of an animal that’s an organ can’t be called simply “meat,” “pork,” beef,” etc. Marrow will be present in mechanically-separated meat, but marrow is both very nutritious and adds a lot of flavor. Also note that no more than 20% of the meat content of a hot dog sold in the US can be mechanically separated.

Table one in this document http://www.animalgenome.org/edu/PIH/128.html lists the “by-products” from pigs that are considered edible, and notes which ones are eaten by Americans versus being exported to countries where they’re considered delicacies, as well as which specific ones tend to be used in sausage. Hot dogs are a type of sausage so that applies to them.

Some hot dogs’ meat content is all-pork, all-beef, all-chicken or all-turkey, while many are a combination of meat from two or more kinds of animal. But they’re always made from parts of the animal that are okay to eat.

Hot dogs typically also contain “fillers” made from things like grains (corn, wheat etc.) or soybeans. These fillers aren’t necessarily bad for you, they just aren’t meat… Which means they may be healthier ingredients than the meat itself, actually.

The distinctive flavoring in most American hot dogs comes from a spice called mace. Mace is related to nutmeg; nutmeg comes from the seed of the nutmeg tree, while mace is made from the thin layer of dried fruit left on the nutmeg seed after it ripens.

Most hot dogs also contain nitrates and/or nitrites, food additives that are used to “cure” products like sausage, ham, bacon and corned beef. Curing kills gives these meats distinctive pinkish color even when cooked as well as affecting their flavor and, most importantly, killing bacteria. This article http://www.answers.com/topic/curing-food-preservation has information about nitrates and nitrites and whether they are unhealthy to eat, as well as other methods of curing different foods. Nitrates and nitrites can cause environmental problems when they get into lakes, rivers, or drinking water, but that’s mostly a separate issue.

Also, hot dogs are already fully cooked when you buy them in the grocery store, so they just need to be warmed up, and you can even eat them cold, though most people prefer the change in texture caused by boiling, grilling or frying their hot dogs.
