    Rabbit meat, yes or no?

    https://www.zaobao.com.sg/znews/singapore/story20191206-1011204?fbclid=IwAR2M8QzALLd6ZKjX9_0sEBmO5DDZ1ZjeeCK_KcSZMsKA5m3oFqnmGHjcl7Y Rabbit Hot Pot opened in Clarke Quay last week. Didn't know rabbit meat is allowed in SG. Yes or No? Personally it's a no for me. It's the same level of disgust as eating dogs, frogs, seafood. The only meat I've convinced myself to eat is chicken, sometimes pork and beef.
  2. 8 Ridiculous Myths About Eating Meat Kris Gunnars, Authority Nutrition Flickr/snekse There is a lot of nonsense in nutrition. One of the worst examples is the constant propaganda against meat consumption. Here are 8 ridiculous myths about meat consumption and health. 1. Meat Rots in Your Colon Some people claim that meat doesn’t get digested properly and “rots” in your colon. This is absolute nonsense, probably invented by dishonest vegans in order to scare people away from eating meat. What happens when we eat meat, is that it gets broken down by stomach acid and digestive enzymes. In the small intestine, the proteins are broken down into amino acids and the fats are broken down into fatty acids. After that, they get absorbed over the digestive wall and into the bloodstream. There’s nothing left to “rot” in your colon.If you want to know what really “rots” in your colon, it’s indigestible plant matter (fiber)… from vegetables, fruits, grains and legumes. The human digestive system doesn’t have the enzymes necessary to break downfiber, which is why it travels all the way to the colon. There, it gets fermented (rots) by the friendly bacteria in the intestine, which turn it into nutrients and beneficial compounds like the short-chain fatty acid butyrate (1). This is what keeps the friendly bacteria alive and many studies are showing that feeding these bacteria properly is incredibly important for optimal health (2, 3). So, meat doesn’t rot in the colon. Plants do… and this is actually a good thing. Bottom Line: The nutrients in meat are broken down and absorbed way before they reach the colon. However, fiber from plants does ferment (“rot”) in the colon, which is actually a good thing as it feeds the friendly bacteria. 2. Meat Is High in Harmful Saturated Fat and Cholesterol One of the main arguments against meat, is that it tends to be high in both saturated fat and cholesterol. But this really isn’t a cause for concern, because new science has shown both of them to be harmless. Despite being seen as something to be feared, cholesterol is actually a vital molecule in the body. It is found in every cell membrane and used to make hormones. The liver produces large amounts of it to make sure we always have enough. When we get a lot of cholesterol from the diet, the liver just produces less of it instead, so the total amount doesn’t change much (4, 5). In fact, in about 70% of people, cholesterol in the diet has negligible effects on cholesterol in the blood (6). In the other 30% (termed hyper-responders), there is a mild elevation in LDL cholesterol, but HDL (which is protective) also goes up (7, 8). The same is true with saturated fat, it also raises HDL (the “good”) cholesterol (9,10). But even when saturated fat and/or cholesterol cause mild increases in LDL, this is not a problem because they change the LDL particles from small, dense LDL (very bad) to Large LDL, which is protective (11, 12). Studies show that people who have mostly large LDL particles have a much lower risk of heart disease (13, 14). Therefore, it is not surprising to see that in population studies that include hundreds of thousands of people, saturated fat and cholesterol are not associated with an increased risk of heart disease (15, 16). In fact, some studies show that saturated fat is linked to a reduced risk of stroke, another very common cause of death and disability (17). When they put this to the test in actual human experiments, making people cut saturated fat and replacing it with “heart healthy” vegetable oils (which happen to lower cholesterol), it actually increases the risk of death (18). Bottom Line: It is true that meat tends to be high in saturated fat and cholesterol, but this is not a cause for concern because they do not have adverse effects on blood cholesterol or increase the risk of heart disease. 3. Meat Causes Heart Disease and Type 2 Diabetes Strangely enough, meat is often blamed for Western diseases like heart disease and type 2 Diabetes. Heart disease didn’t become a problem until the early 20th century and type 2 diabetes only a few decades ago. These diseases are new… but meat is an old food. Humans and pre-humans have been eating meat for millions of years (19). Blaming an old food for new health problems makes absolutely no sense. Fortunately, we do have two very large, very thorough studies that can put our minds at ease. In a massive study published in the year 2010, researchers pooled data from 20 studies that included a total of 1,218,380 individuals. They found no link between consumption of unprocessed red meat and heart disease or diabetes (20). Another major study from Europe that included 448,568 individuals found no link between unprocessed red meat and these diseases (21). However, both of these studies found a strong increase in risk for people who ateprocessed meat. For this reason, it is very important to make a distinction between the different types of meat. Many studies apparently showing that “red meat” is harmful didn’t adequately make the distinction between processed and unprocessed meat. Processed foods in general are pretty awful… this isn’t just true of meat. Bottom Line: Many massive studies have examined the relationship between meat consumption, heart disease and diabetes. They found a strong link for processed meat, but no effect for unprocessed red meat. 4. Red Meat Causes Cancer One common belief is that meat, especially red meat, causes cancer. This is where things get a bit more complicated. It is true that processed meat is associated with an increased risk of cancer, especially colon cancer (22). But when it comes to unprocessed red meat, things aren’t as clear. Although several studies suggest that even unprocessed red meat can raise the risk of cancer, review studies that pool the data from many studies at a time show a different picture. Two review studies, one that looked at data from 35 studies and the other from 25 studies, found that the effect for unprocessed red meat was very weak for men and nonexistent for women (23, 24). However… it does appear that the way meat is cooked can have a major effect on its health effects. Several studies show that when meat is overcooked, it can form compounds likeHeterocyclic Amines and Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons, which have been shown to cause cancer in test animals (25). There are several ways to prevent this from happening… such as choosing gentler cooking methods and always cutting away burned or charred pieces. So the answer is not to avoid red meat, but to make sure not to burn it. Keep in mind that overheating can cause harmful compounds to form in many other foods. This is NOT exclusive to meat (26). Bottom Line: The link between unprocessed red meat and cancer is very weak in men and nonexistent in women. This may depend on the way meat is cooked, because overheating can form carcinogens. 5. Humans Are Naturally Herbivores and Not “Designed” For Meat Consumption Some vegans claim that humans aren’t “designed” to eat meat. They say that humans are naturally herbivores like our primate ancestors. However… this is completely false. Humans and pre-humans have been eating meat for a very long time and our bodies are well adapted to meat consumption (27, 28). Our digestive systems really don’t resemble those of herbivores at all. We have short colons, long small intestines and lots of hydrochloric acid in the stomach to help break down animal protein (29). The length of different parts of our digestive system is somewhere in between the lengths typical for both carnivores and herbivores, indicating that humans are “designed” to be omnivores (30). It is also believed that our consumption of animal foods helped drive the evolution of our large brains, which set us apart from any other animal on earth (31). Humans function best eating both animals and plants. Period. Bottom Line: Humans are well equipped to make full use of the nutrients found in meat. Our digestive system reflects a genetic adaptation to an omnivorous diet, with animal foods as a major source of calories. 6. Meat is Bad For Your Bones Many people seem to believe that protein is bad for the bones and can lead to osteoporosis. The theory goes like this… we eat protein, which increases the acid load of the body, then the body moves calcium from the bones and into the bloodstream to neutralize the acid. There are in fact some short-term studies to support this. Increasing protein does lead to increased calcium loss from the body (32). However, this short term effect does not appear to persist because the long-term studies show that protein actually has beneficial effects on bone health (33). There is overwhelming evidence that a high protein diet is linked to improved bone density and a lower risk of osteoporosis and fractures in old age (34, 35, 36). This is a great example of where blindly following the conventional wisdom in nutrition will lead to the exact opposite result. 7. Meat is Unnecessary It is often claimed that meat is unnecessary for health. This is actually kind of true… most of the nutrients in it can be found in other animal foods. But just because we can survive without it, it doesn’t mean that we should… quality meat hasmany nutrients that are good for us. This includes quality protein, vitamin B12, creatine, carnosine and various important fat-soluble vitamins, which vegans and vegetarians are often lacking in. Whole foods like meat contain way more than just the standard vitamins and minerals that we’re all familiar with it. There are literally thousands of trace nutrients in there… some of which science has yet to identify. The fact is, humans evolved eating meat and evolution designed our bodies with these nutrients in mind. They are an essential part of the immensely complex biological puzzle. Can we live without meat? Sure… but we won’t reach optimal health, making use of all the beneficial nutrients that nature has provided us with. Although we can survive without meat, the same could be said of most other food groups… including vegetables, fruits, legumes, fish, eggs, etc. We just eat more of something else instead. Quality meat is pretty close to being the perfect food for humans. It contains most of the nutrients we need. There is even a study in the literature where two guys ate nothing but meat and organs for a year and remained in excellent health (37). Of course, not all meat is the same. The best meat comes from animals raised on pasture, fed the types of foods they would eat in nature. Unprocessed meat from properly raised, properly fed animals (like grass-fed beef) has a much better nutrient profile (38, 39). 8. Meat Makes You Fat Meat is often believed to be fattening. This seems to make sense on the surface because most meat is pretty high in fat and calories. However, meat also happens to be one of the best sources of highly bioavailable protein. Protein is the most weight loss friendly macronutrient, by far. Studies show that a high protein diet can boost metabolism by up to 80 to 100 calories per day (40, 41). There are also studies showing that if you increase your protein intake, you automatically start eating less of other foods instead (42). Several studies have found that by increasing the amount of protein in the diet, people automatically cut calorie intake by several hundred calories per day, putting weight loss on “autopilot” (43). Eating more protein also tends to favour increased muscle mass. Muscle is metabolically active and burns a small amount of calories around the clock (44). Also, let’s not forget that low-carb and paleo diets, which tend to be high in meat, lead to significantly more weight loss than diets that are lower in meat (45, 46). If anything, the more you eat of high quality meat (and less of other foods instead), the easier it should be for you to lose weight. 9. Anything Else? Are there any other myths about meat that you keep seeing pushed? Feel free to add to the list in the comments!

    Hi, Can anyone tell me why the luncheon meat we eat is call " wu chan rou" ? How did the name come about? Many thanks.
  4. Anyone eat before? Is it really that nice? The couple behind Kay Lee Roast Meat Joint, Madam Betty Kong, 66, and her 62-year-old husband, said their children are not keen on taking over the business. -- PHOTO: LIANHE WANBAO Finally, the secret behind Kay Lee's well-known roast meats can be revealed, but for the right price. The restaurant's owners want $2 million for the Guangzhou-style recipe, which dates back to the 1950s. The price is $3.5 million when the shop space is thrown in.

    Expired Meat Sold To Fastfood Chains, China

    Beware eating at Mac or KFC in Shanghai, China .... CNA: China shuts factory for supplying expired meat to McDonald's, KFC SHANGHAI: Shanghai has shut a factory of US food provider OSI Group for selling out-of-date meat to restaurant giants including McDonald's and KFC, authorities said Monday in China's latest food safety scandal. Shanghai television, which reported the original allegations, said that workers at the OSI China plant mixed expired meat with the fresh product and deliberately misled quality inspectors from McDonald's. Other customers included Burger King, Papa John's Pizza, coffee chain Starbucks and sandwich maker Subway, the Shanghai Daily newspaper reported on Monday. City officials closed the factory on Sunday and seized products which allegedly used expired meat, the Shanghai food and drug administration said in a statement. Police were investigating, it said, threatening "severe punishment" in future. McDonald's said in a statement it had "immediately" stopped using the factory's products while Yum separately said its KFC and Pizza Hut restaurants had also halted use of its meat. China has been rocked by a series of food and product safety problems, due to lax enforcement of regulations and corner-cutting by producers. One of the worst occurred in 2008 when the industrial chemical melamine was found to have been illegally added to dairy products, killing at least six babies and making 300,000 people ill. Retail giant Walmart of the United States said early this year that it would tighten inspections of its suppliers in China after it was forced to recall donkey meat products that had been found to contain fox meat. Last year, China detained hundreds of people for food safety crimes, including selling rat and fox meat disguised as beef and mutton, following a three-month crackdown, police said. - AFP/fa link: http://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/asiapacific/china-shuts-factory-for/1274626.html & the owner of the company that supply those meats....

    Mince Meat - China

    Mince meat............ anyone... Yahoo news: Man arrested in China for testicle chopping A man used a blunt razor to chop off the testicles of four patients at a Chinese nursing home, state media said Thursday. The suspect, who has been arrested, castrated a mentally disabled man aged 60 and removed one testicle each from two bedridden patients aged 53 and 80, the official Xinhua news agency said. Xinhua originally reported that there were three victims, but later updated its report with another man who was discovered during police enquiries, without giving details. The man tied up the inpatients and "removed their private parts with a dull razor", Xinhua cited doctors and victims in northeast China's Heilongjiang province as saying. Xinhua cited a member of staff as saying that the suspect, in his 30s, was mentally ill and housed at the home, but patients claimed he was an employee. A report by the Beijing News newspaper on Thursday said the man carried out the acts following a row over "leftover food", without providing details. Authorities in the area could not be reached for comment about the attack, which happened on Tuesday. Conditions in many Chinese homes for the elderly and disabled are poor, with many establishments troubled by insufficient beds, funding and poor management. link: https://sg.news.yahoo.com/man-arrested-china-testicle-chopping-134447893.html Shortage of "Hu Pian" (tiger testicle), any type will do .....

    Wild boar meat nice?

  9. Once considered pet food, kangaroo meat could soon be sold to China as a luxury product, to encourage Chinese consumers to do something few Australians will - eat it. With a booming middle class, China’s appetite for meat is expected to rise nearly 17 per cent over the next eight years, the World Trade Organization says. Exporters do not yet have permission to sell kangaroo meat to China but recent comments by Australian officials have put the industry in a bullish mood. “This is something that ticks a whole range of boxes,” Agriculture Minister Barnaby Joyce told the Australian Broadcasting Corp. “I’m going to try and look at further discussions with the Chinese because I think there is a big prospect for a market there.” Mr Wang Jun, the owner of a small restaurant in Beijing, said he would be keen to try kangaroo. “Why not? As long as it is delicious,” Mr Wang said. Beef, pork and chicken are staples in China but some diners also tuck into cat, rat, dog and more exotic animals in the belief that they have medicinal qualities. Still, not everyone may be so adventurous when it comes to kangaroo. “How could we lay our chopsticks on such cute animals?” said Ms Liu Xinxin, a 21-year-old university student from Beijing. Ms Liu’s comments echo sentiments in Australia that have kept the kangaroo meat industry in a state of suspended development. A 2008 government survey showed nearly a fifth of Australians would never eat kangaroo on ethical grounds. Others are reluctant to consume an animal that figures in the national coat of arms. Just 15.5 percent of people eat kangaroo meat more than four times a year. Australia is already a large supplier of red meat to China, with shipments worth A$616 million (S$720 million) in the 2012/13 season. The kangaroo industry hopes to jump into the action. “It would be huge if we could get access to the Chinese market and they are certainty very interested,” said Mr Ray Borda, founder and managing director of Macro Meats, Australia’s largest processor of kangaroo and wild game meat.

    Fake Lamb Meat

    BEIJING (AP) -- Chinese police have broken up a criminal ring accused of taking meat from rats and foxes and selling it as lamb in the country's latest food safety scandal. The Ministry of Public Security released results of a three-month crackdown on food safety violators, saying in a statement that authorities investigated more than 380 cases and arrested 904 suspects. Among those arrested were 63 people who allegedly ran an operation in Shanghai and the coastal city of Wuxi that bought fox, mink, rat and other meat that had not been tested for quality and safety, processed it with additives like gelatin and passed it off as lamb. The meat was sold to farmers' markets in Jiangsu province and Shanghai, it said. Despite years of food scandals

  13. And you thought you have heard or seen it all... From CNA: http://www.channelnewsasia.com/stories/sin...1235760/1/.html Meat supplier fined for passing off beef as mutton Posted: 07 November 2012 1328 hrs SINGAPORE: A meat supplier has been fined S$4,000 for passing off beef as mutton in its minced and chopped meat product. Basha Meat Supplier Pte Ltd was investigated by the National Environment Agency (NEA) and the Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority (AVA) following public feedback. The two agencies had tested the DNA of various samples of minced and chopped meat sold by Basha Meat Supplier as mutton. Beef was found in the samples. The supplier was brought to court November 6 where it was fined by the court under the Sale of Food Act. NEA said before the court's decision, it had been monitoring Basha's products, and subsequent samples did not uncover any beef in meat sold as mutton. In a media statement, NEA said on October 9 a similar deterrent sentence was passed to another meat supplier - Nabisha Mutton Supplier. NEA and AVA had tested the DNA of various samples of minced and chopped meat sold by Nabisha Mutton Supplier as mutton. Beef was found in the samples. The court fined Nabisha S$5,000, which is the maximum penalty for the first offence under the Sale of Food Act. NEA said the AVA is reviewing the maximum penalties specified under the Sale of Food Act to serve as a greater deterrent to offenders. This is part of its current review of the Act to look at other measures to enhance food safety. - CNA/fa

    What is your favourite meat?

    Mine is pork. Taste better than chicken, mutton, beef etc.... Wonder why do muslims think its a "dirty" meat... What is yours?
  19. STOMPer Karen witnessed helpers at a well-known 'tze char' or cooked food stall in Yishun carelessly preparing raw meat on the floor at the back of the stall. According to the STOMPer, the workers also dump innards and unwanted parts into the drain nearby. She relates the incident to STOMP in an email: "There is a tze char food stall at Block 654 Yishun Ave 4 called 妹记大排档. "Ever since it was featured on a TV entertainment programme, its dinner crowd boomed. "Perhaps its kitchen is overwhelmed by food orders, the stall's helpers have started to process raw food on the floor at the back of the food centre, right next to pails that held used dining ware. "I have also attached photos which show how a kitchen helper had placed a clear sheet of plastic on the grimy floor. That same sheet of clear plastic was later placed on top of some patty he had prepared. "Raw meats that fell onto the floor were simply picked up and tossed back into the lot, and brought back into the kitchen. "Furthermore, when the kitchen helpers were done with their meat, they would conveniently dispose of the filthy water and unwanted animal innards onto the floor and down the drains. "It was disgusting how bloody pools would form in the grooves of the parking lot closest to the back of the food centre. "My family has brought this issue up to the attention of the National Environment Agency. We provided photo evidence too. "Disappointingly, the officer assigned to this matter replied to say nothing incriminating was found. "It is worthwhile to note that the officer had conducted a 'discreet inspection' at 8.30am on a Monday morning. Tze char stalls start work late morning and get busy towards dinner time. "It would seem a lot more appropriate if the officer had conducted his 'discreet inspection' on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings, so I am very surprised that was not done. "I am surprised by the nonchalance of NEA in this matter, when the agency has always preached the importance of food safety and public hygiene in Singapore."

  24. 1. Recently, I went to fairprice to buy a bunch of frozen pork, since it has been heavily advertised on the news, radio and etc. 2. My maid cooked the usual dishes with the frozen pork and yark! the meat is so tough and dry. I asked my maid, did she change her usual way of cooking but she said no. 3. Now my question is, is there a special way to defroze the meat and the way to cook the frozen meat is different from chill meat? Thank you very much. Regards,
