How Sysco came to monopolize most of what you eat. – By Ulrich Boser – Slate Magazine

Wow! This is pretty amazing. What is even more amazing is this claim:

The ingredients alone on some of the pre-made items are enough to make a restaurant-goer swear off eating out. The breaded cheese chicken breast, for instance, contains monocalcium phosphates, sorbic acid preservatives, and oleoresin in turmeric. The Serve Smart Chicken is particularly frightening. While it looks natural, it consists of parts of other chicken breasts mashed together into a single, chicken-breastlike block. As the company notes on its Web site, our “unique 3-D technology gives you the look and texture of a solid muscle chicken breast, at a fraction of the cost. … Available in four great flavors: teriyaki, BBQ, fajita and original.” What Smart Chicken tastes like, I’d rather not know.

I am sure that I don’t have to tell you that the comments on this blog post really got into it. I mean we all eat right? Well? Chicken breastlike block? LMAO
