Sounds good. Can you buy it in tubes? Um eating it right out of the tube sounds good.

Does the package say it has transglutaminase so we can look out for it? I don't recall seeing it anywhere before...

This is a completely absurd story, there are a ton of meat binders out there on being seaweed. One more being egg, does that mean these ingredients are toxic, the vegan dogma is so outrageous. It's dangerous because it's been concentrated for a stronger bond to make a more uniform ham, and its only more susceptible to pathogens because it has more surfaces that a whole bone in ham... if you not a butcher or maybe an inspector you really can't raise red herrings over meat.

Here is a link to an article I found about meat glue that seems balanced:

It appears meat glue is not something to freak out about, but just another one of those things in modern life to put on your personal "watch list".

I don't see anything wrong with meat glue.

I use meat glue to hold together my homemade 4 patty melt with lettuce, tomato, union, pickle, all on a sesame bun.
