Taco Bell customers who may have been wondering about the ingredients in the fast-food chain’s beef now have their answer.
The national chain of Mexican-inspired restaurants, owned by Yum! Brands, has launched a new page on its official website explaining the contents of the 12 per cent of Taco Bell’s beef that is not actually beef.
The company concedes that the ingredients in the 12 per cent ‘signature recipe’ have weird names – perfect for tongue twisters.’
But the page goes on to say that all the items, many of which sound like they belong in a chemistry kit, ‘are completely safe and approved by the FDA.’
‘They’re common ingredients also found in food items at your grocery store,’ the company states.
‘Each ingredient helps make our Seasoned Beef taste great. Many of them are items you might use at home such as salt, peppers, and spices. Ingredients like oats and sodium phosphates help make sure the texture is right.’
According to Taco Bell, they start each of the 2 billion tacos served up every year with USDA-inspected quality beef, then add water to keep it moist, toss in ‘Mexican spies and flavors,’ plus oats, yeast, citric acid and ‘other ingredients’ to ensure the consistency of their ‘seasoned beef.’ [Da Mail]
And you guys promise it doesn’t grow under food-warmer lights, right? Um, and what exactly was the color before you made it “beef colored”?
Okay, three semi-beef tacos, hold the “Mexican spies.” My gardener is already giving me the creeps.
Second thought, maybe I’ll just go with the bean burrito and a Pepsi.
Excuse me? Where’s the bathroom?
¿Perdón? ¿El baño, por favor? ¡Mui rápido, por favor!
