What's In Your Hot Dog?
Posted July 11, 2012 by peta2 staff
Do you know what you’re eating?!
Ever wondered what’s in a hot dog? I have! And if you’re not eating veggie dogs, you may be shocked to find out what’s really in that hot dog you just ate!
Hot dogs contain the leftovers that aren’t usable in other meat products. They’re typically made of trimmings and fat, high fructose corn syrup, chemicals, flavorings, and even food dye to hide the actual color of the flesh.
Just another reason why you should be eating real food like fruits and vegetables—you know, food that doesn’t have to be dyed or processed. When you have to change the appearance of food in order to convince yourself to eat it, it’s probably more than safe to say that you shouldn’t eat it at all.
So now that you’ve learned about or had a quick refresher on hot dogs, it’s time to cook up some yummy veggie hot dogs! Yum!
