15. Meat Glue- It Exists
Meat glue or transglutaminase is an enzyme that occurs naturally in humans and animals. That’s why it is also known as ‘nature’s bio glue’. Artificial meat glue can also be made by cultivating bacteria from the blood plasma of animals like cows and pigs. Sometimes this is further mixed with gelatin too.
So where does meat glue figure in your diet? That depends on how much steak you eat! The meat industry sells tiny shreds of meat that are ‘glued’ together to create one big steak piece. So, what we think is a single cut may not actually be so.
